    I have created a report with several 'navigate to report' actions within it, drilling down from one report to another. Everything looks and works great in the stand alone report designer. However, once deployed within the HTML5 Report Viewer, I can get the first report loaded and rendered, but the textboxes with the drill down action to another report does not work. They are not even clickable. I have tried debugging my custom report controller, reportconnectionmanager, and the standard report controller to find nothing wrong and no errors thrown. All paths to the reports look correct. I also tried publishing my app and running on a test site, and opening in several browsers, but nothing works. Any ideas why the actions would not be working?

    Hello Canton,

    Using a custom report resolver to dynamically change the connection strings of all data sources, actions, and data items in the report will prevent any navigate to report actions from working correctly.
    This effect is caused by the custom code used for changing the connection string, which converts all of the report sources used throughout the report to instance report source type. This report source type is not supported in the HTML5 report viewer, which is why the actions will not work.
