SQL Reporting Services Page

The SQL Reporting Services page is displayed when SQL Reporting Services in the Configuration task list is selected in the navigation pane of the Administration Tasks tab. From this page you can launch the SQL Reporting Services wizard to define the reporting services and data source information needed to publish reports to SRS. You can also edit existing templates, disable/enable templates and remove templates that are no longer being used.

Use Add to start the SQL Reporting Services wizard to define the report server and data source information.
For example: http://<SQL_Server>/<ReportServer>

Click Test to verify the credentials entered above.
NOTE: The user and group accounts entered on this page are the ONLY accounts that are allowed to import the settings in this template to publish Change Auditor reports to SRS.
