Windows authentication but with custom authorization
Hi all,Is it possible to set up configuration of Reporting Services so that authentication would be based on Active Directory, but authorization would be based on my own security framework (by implemented IAuthorizationExtension) ?At the moment I have Forms authentication and authorization related with my web application (by suitable classes Authorization, Authentication; suitable entries in rsreportserver.config; etc.). But I would like to change it to Windows authentication and leave unchanged my custom authorization. Is it possible? I tried change entries in rsreportserver.config something like that but still it doesn't work.<Security> <Extension Name="Windows" Type="mynamespace.FormsAuthentication.CustomSecurity.Authorization, mynamespace.FormsAuthentication.CustomSecurity"/></Security><Authentication> <Extension Name="Windows" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Authentication.WindowsAuthentication, Microsoft.ReportingServices.Authorization"/></Authentication>I get error message: The report server has encountered a configuration error. See the report server log files for more information. (rsServerConfigurationError)Of course I have my "dll" in folder C:\Program Files\(...)\MSSQL.#\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin\Kind regards,Radek

Could you add the error from the server log?This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights

Hi Radek, I dont want to state the obvious, but did you add your custom dll to rssrvpolicy.config as well? Leaving these settings out can cause security/access errors in the eventlog.

Hello friends, I'm facing the same problem as Radek, Is there a way to make Reporting services work with Custom authorisation, but Windows authentication? Everything works as expected when, Custom Authorisation and custom Authentication are in place. When the Authentication is turned back to Windows and authorisation is set to custom (Forms), the reporting services spits out the Configuration error message. Is that a limitation with Windows reporting services or am I overlooking something? Any help would be highly appreciated. Thx, Rajeev
