Is Telerik reporting a viable solution for an Azure hosted application?

I understand it won't render to PDF but I do need to view and print reports. Will it do that much? If so what are the steps as I've tried with the latest version and it won't render in the cloud.

Any other suggestions for reporting in Azure?

I made progress but still having issues. I set copylocal = true for telerik.reporting but didn't explicitly add telerik.reportivew.webforms as a reference and copy local to true. Not sure how it ran without the reference...

My issue now is it runs local but fails to find the reportviewer javascript files. The request to
http:// (mycloudapp address) /Telerik.ReportViewer.axd?name=Skins.Default.ReportViewer.css&optype=Resource&version=4.0.10.423   fails with a a 404 but runs locally.

I have the axd reference in web.config:
    <httpHandlers>
      <add path="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd" verb="*" type="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource"
        validate="false" />
      <add path="asset.axd" verb="GET,HEAD" type="Telerik.Web.Mvc.WebAssetHttpHandler, Telerik.Web.Mvc"
        validate="false" />
      <add verb="*" path="Telerik.ReportViewer.axd"
           type="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms.HttpHandler, Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=4.0.10.423, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be" />
    </httpHandlers>

Anyone have thoughts now?

Should have included these in the last post.
    <handlers>
      <remove name="UrlRoutingHandler" />
      <remove name="MvcHttpHandler" />
      <add name="MvcHttpHandler" preCondition="integratedMode" verb="*" path="*.mvc" type="System.Web.Mvc.MvcHttpHandler" />
      <add name="Telerik_Web_UI_WebResource_axd" verb="*" preCondition="integratedMode"
           path="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd" type="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource" />
      <add name="AssetHandler" verb="GET,HEAD" preCondition="integratedMode" path="asset.axd"
           type="Telerik.Web.Mvc.WebAssetHttpHandler, Telerik.Web.Mvc" />
      <add name="Telerik.ReportViewer.axd_*"
           type="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms.HttpHandler, Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=4.0.10.423, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be"
           path="Telerik.ReportViewer.axd" verb="*" preCondition="integratedMode,runtimeVersionv2.0"/>
    </handlers>

Doug, does this solution still require you to open the UI or is this unattended?  Looking at the code it looks as if the solution is designed to access the Cloud Azure data and return the results to the IIS UI environment.  Is this a correct assumption?  Sorry for the questions just monitoring to see if this gets us any closer to the unattended publish model (server side versus UI rendering).

The app is built upon asp.net mvc using sql azure and windows azure. The data access has never been an issue, just the rendering.

Hi Doug,

Telerik Reporting does work on Azure as listed in the System Requirements page with limitations being the export to PDF and Excel. However if you are aware of the current workings of Telerik Reporting, you would know that printing the report uses the Acrobat PDF plug-in to export internally to PDF and then invoke the print dialog i.e. printing would not work either. I've also attached a sample project working properly on Azure.

All the best,
Steve

Hello Stefen,

Windows Azure support requires Windows Azure SDK 1.3 (November 2010) or later and Telerik Reporting Q3 2010 or later. All export formats are now working correctly.
