After migrating our Reports REST service from a VM to an Azure App Service we are no longer able to print using the vector (EMF) format. I found this article from 2018 recommending we use raster/PNG as the print output: https://docs.telerik.com/reporting/knowledge-base/unable-to-print-reports-from-azure-environment. Using this setting works but results in some reports being 20MB+ when printing. Viewing reports using vectors works and saving them as PDF vector works as well. Is there an update or another way to enable printing with vectors from Azure App Service?

Hi Aleksandar,

As far as we know, Azure still heavily restricts the usage of the GDI APIs that we use for image rendering when using Azure App Service.

My suggestion would be to ask Azure support what is their current support for Metafiles and whether the more premium Azure App Service plans apply fewer restrictions on the GDI+ APIs.
