Hi

In the release history i have just seen that there is now support for custom authentication token in HTML5 viewers available. How to set the authentication token? Are any examples out there?

 

Thanks for your help. :)

Hello Dennis,

You can set the authentication token through the report viewer options.

HTML5 Report Viewer:
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
        $("#reportViewer1")
            .telerik_ReportViewer({
                serviceUrl: "api/reports/",
                authenticationToken: "myAuthToken",
...

MVC Report Viewer:
@(Html.TelerikReporting().ReportViewer()
        .Id("reportViewer1")
        .ServiceUrl(Url.Content("~/api/reports/"))
        .AuthenticationToken("myAuthToken")
...

HTML5 Report Viewer for WebForms:
this.reportViewer1.AuthenticationToken = "myAuthToken";

Hi.

 

We did as you described. And it sends token for the most resources, but some how does not for the follwoing url:

GET /api/reports/clients/173901-cdb6/instances/173902-9976/documents/173902-d1da173902-1f2a/resources/expand.png/

I assume it's expand icon for a cross tab component.

Is it a bug ? We need to identify users in order to assign appropriate connection string. (Different users work with different databases)

Problem is that this reqeust hits ReportController in the backend but we cannot create ReportServiceConfiguration in the ReportController constructor. 

 

 

var configSectionConfigurationInstance =
new Telerik.Reporting.Services.ConfigSectionReportServiceConfiguration
{
HostAppId = "MyApp",
ReportResolver = new CustomReportResolver(),
Storage = new Telerik.Reporting.Cache.MsSqlServerStorage(currentUser.Client.DatabaseConnection)
};

this.ReportServiceConfiguration = configSectionConfigurationInstance;

 

Request has no token as theresult we don't knwo current user and cannot set the connection string
