Hello

I've design some reports in the Report Designer and they're working great, but what I need to do is to change the DB being connected to when I load the report.  The idea would be to pass a connect string to the Report Rest Service, as we already pass the filename for the report.  Is this possible?  

Thanks
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Check the approach suggested in Changing the connection string dynamically according to runtime data Kb article. This is a sample approach demonstrating how to iterate over report's inner data items DataSource properties and can be modified according to your scenario.

To be used with HTML5 Report Viewer, the modifications need to be placed in the Resolve method of a custom resolver used by the Reporting REST service.
