Hi Faris,

In general, the HTML5 Report Viewer is a client-side widget served only by a running Reporting REST service, which is dedicated to display already created reports. It is the service that manages the report state and resources.

Details how to add the viewer via template are available in the HTML5 Report Viewer Quickstart article

How the viewer(client)-service pair works:

Basically, the client (viewer) sends string description of the requested report (the viewer's value) to the service, and depending on the report resolvers in the service's CreateReportResolver method this string description will be resolved to a report source object.
By default we provide ReportFileResolver and ReportTypeResolver. You can also create your own report resolvers as in the example in the How To: Implement a Custom Report Resolver article.

Depending on how the application will be hosted, you can use the corresponding cache storage for the service - REST Service storage. If the service will be hosted separately, and will use a different domain you may need to enable CORS to allow the communication between the clients(viewers) and the service.

For a working demo, check the local examples installed by default under C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Reporting <VERSION>\Examples\CSharp.

The recommended troubleshooting approach when using the viewer is to use the browser's Console or download and install Fiddler. In Fiddler - Inspectors - Request/Response - Raw tabs will be listed information about the made request and its response, including a list of all performed requests for the page.

I hope the provided information is helpful.
