    I have a Web Application using Telerik.Reporting.Services.WebApi with Html5 ReportViewer with a custom controller, where depending on the report type it uses a custom resolver.
    There are 3 different report types and each one uses a HostAppId with a custom resolver. The storage is a Telerik.Reporting.Cache.File.FileStorage pointing to the same path for all 3 report types.

    But after starting the application and generating the first report type, the other 2 types generates information in the storage path, but the report does not display any information, always being '0 pages loaded so far ...'.
    It opens infinite requests - one after another - to an url like this "~/clients/085352-e708/instances/083615-c3d7/documents/085412-2b2a085412-5cbd/info" giving the same json response for them all:

    I believe that somehow by changing HostAppId, the cache is lost. How I fix this?


    public class ReportBaseController<TReportResolver> : ReportsControllerBase
       where TReportResolver : IReportResolver, new()
       protected virtual string HostAppId { get; }

       protected string ReportCachePath => HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath($"~/App_Data/reportcache");

       public ReportBaseController()
           if (!Directory.Exists(ReportCachePath))

           this.ReportServiceConfiguration = new ReportServiceConfiguration
               HostAppId = this.HostAppId,
               ReportResolver = new TReportResolver(),
               Storage = new Telerik.Reporting.Cache.File.FileStorage(ReportCachePath)

    Controllers of the 3 different report types:

    public class ReportSystemController : ReportBaseController<SystemReportResolver>
       protected override string HostAppId => "ReportSystem";

    public class ReportClientController : ReportBaseController<ClientReportResolver>
       protected override string HostAppId => "ReportClient";

    public class ReportListController : ReportBaseController<ListReportResolver>
       protected override string HostAppId => "ReportList";

    Hello Fernando,

    The FileStorage implementation is not suitable to work with multiple Reporting REST service instances. You can use a storage implementation suitable for multiple-instance scenario: IStorage implementation suitable for deploying in Web Farms.

    Another option would be to use a single service per application. What is the purpose of the different ReportsControllerBase implementations in your application?
