    We are currently testing Report Server to generate reports with an OpenEdge RDBS.

    So far, we've managed to connect via the OpenClient DataSource, upload the report to the Report Server and run it.

    https://docs.telerik.com/reporting/openclientdatasource

    Now we'd like to try it in another environment (let's say PROD vs DEV), so we need to change the data source to switch environment.

    Do we need to edit the report per environment ? or is there another way ? 

    In the following blog post, you answer this question, but it seems you cannot create an alias for an OpenClient DataSource.

    > Q: Can you update a reports data source in Report Server? Example when in DEV we use a Demo Database.
    > A: You can design your report to use named connections. Then you can have different definitions for the connection string of this named connection on each computer the report is being tested on.

    The Admin page of the report server does not allow to create an alias for an OpenClient ConnectionString.
