Hello Mehmet,

The attachment cannot be opened.

Please take a look at my post in the 400 Bad Request for /api/reports/clients/{client_id}/parameters forum thread, and verify all settings listed in the linked articles are applied correctly.

The major settings you have to check are:
  1. If the folder with the TRDX files is mapped correctly in the ReportscontrollerBase.CreateReportResolver method;
  2. If relative paths are resolved correctly based on the projects structure;
  3. If the Reporting REST service is reachable at the given address. If the service is hosted separately, you will need to enable CORS to allow the communication with the viewer.
  4. If all connection strings used in the report are copied in the corresponding section of the service's project. If you have extended the Standalone Designer with external assemblies, please check the Deploying trdx (XML report definition) that uses external assembly KB article.

If you need further help, please reattach the details about the received error. You can also check the failed requests with Fiddler at your side.
