    Is there a way to configure a datasource to point to a url that returns data?

    Hello Dustin,

    You will need to retrieve the data from a URL programmatically and then return it using a data retrieval method. The returned result from this method can be wrapped in an ObjectDataSource Component and used as the report's data source.

    For example, if you receive JSON data from a web service you can deserialize it and use it in an ObjectDataSource Component.
