Thanks in advance for any help.

I want to use Telerik Reporting for our Azure based application, which uses Federation. I also want to use a SQL Data Source as the Data Source for all of the reports in the project (more than one in the project). Connecting to the Federated Root is straight forward, but I am trying to figure out a best strategy for:

1) Where to run the USE FEDERATION fed_name (dist_key = value)  WITH FILTERING=ON, RESET
2) Where/how to programatically set the dist_key value

Any help or insight on this front would be appreciated.

Kindest regards...

Hi David,

Thank you for the provided information. Currently using federations with our SqlDataSource component is not possible but you can still reach your data by using the ObjectDataSource component. However you will have to manually open the connection and fill data tables with a SqlDataAdapter.

You can rest assured that such a feature will be implemented in a subsequent version of Telerik Reporting, but we cannot engage with certain time frames. Your Telerik points have been updated for providing us with that information.

Kind regards,
