The Report Server is a web-based report management solution that provides an end-to-end solution for creating, storing, managing, sharing, and scheduling reports from any desktop or mobile browser. It lets you create and store reports, data sources, data sets, and files with features such as user management, groups, permissions, sharing, comments, versioning, caching, filters, rebranding, and authentication with Active Directory and single sign-on.
Use the built-in web-based Report Designer to create and edit beautiful reports from embedded or shared data sources and data sets with the following RDL reporting functionalities:

Style and format reports
The web-based Report Designer provides modern, user-friendly options to transform your data into beautiful reports quickly and efficiently. It allows perfect positioning, sizing, and alignment; easy data configuration; and setting static or dynamic conditional formats based on expressions.
Save and deploy
Publish reports, data sources, and data sets directly to Bold Reports. Organize the items in categories, manage access permissions, and update as necessary.
Share reports with users on the web and across mobile devices to visualize your data and gain valuable business insights.
The reports available in or uploaded to the Report Server are viewable through a built-in HTML5 Report Viewer in the browser when you select a report. It supports viewing the reports with RDL reporting functionalities such as report parameters, shared data sources, shared data sets, drill-through, drill-down, hyperlinks, expressions, filtering, sorting, and grouping. You can print or export the reports to share with other users.

- Reply to a comment.
- Edit and delete a comment.
- Mention users in the comment.
Provide email and system notifications to notify users when someone comments on a report.
The Report Server efficiently organizes reports, data sources, data sets, files, and schedules into categories. This enables you to perform operations like pass filters to a report, download, share, set permissions, process reports, and update cache settings. Permissions to view, edit, and delete items can be given to specific users or groups.
Manage users and groups
Report Server allows you to add, edit, activate, deactivate, delete, and assign users to groups. You can add users or groups with the following options:
- Import Active Directory users or groups.
- Import existing database users.
- Import Azure Active Directory.
The Report Server uses role assignments to help control access to published reports. A flexible permission scheme controls access to reading, writing, and deleting reports. Each role consists of a set of related tasks that grant access to the following operations: view report, add report, update report, delete report, schedule report, add/delete data source, add/delete data set, and more.
Schedule and distribute your reports according to a recurring interval (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly). Our scheduling functionality is very flexible and offers several custom options.
- Schedule with parameters.
- File compression.
- Subscriber and custom file formats.
- Password protection.
Reports hosted in the Report Server are easily integrated into third-party applications.

The Report Server comes with standard username, password, and Windows authentication mechanisms. It allows you to authenticate users against an existing Active Directory or single sign-on.
All items stored on the Report Server are versioned. This enables users to safely create and modify any item as the Report Server maintains historical revisions made to individual items. It is possible to easily revert to more stable versions of each item.
The Report Server has built-in rebranding capabilities, allowing you to add your organization’s name, logo, welcome note, and more.
Manage reports, schedules, data sources, files, users, groups, and permissions, and export reports in the Report Server programmatically from any application.
