    Please can I get a few pointers on setting up an entity data source for the report server and desktop report editor: relevant documentation, walkthroughs, etc. 

    I'm expecting to:

    1. Make an EntityFramework model and compile it into a DLL. Easy: done.
    2. Add an app.config file to the report designer and edit it to include a reference to my DLL. When I download the app from the report server it does not come with a config file. Must the config file have a specific filename? Must it be in a particular location?
    3. Something similar on the report server. I can't find any documentation for this.

    Hello Richard,

    Please check my last update in the Entity Data Source on standalone report designer forum thread.

    In general, EntityDataSource components should be avoided when creating reports for Telerik Report Server. If it is a requirements to use EF data model, then you will have to apply manual changes on the Standalone Report Designer, and the Report Server and Scheduler service.
