This article has been contributed by Daniel Klionsky and based on the work we have done within our team allowing single sign-on integration of SQL Server Reporting Services within existing application.
I want to mention and praise great help provided by Carlos Sereno who was able to clarify many questions for us.
Please enjoy the reading and let us know if it did indeed work for you as well.
SQL Server Reporting Services provides a full range of ready-to-use tools and services to help you create, deploy, and manage reports for your organization, as well as programming features that enable you to extend and customize your reporting functionality.
Reporting Services is a server-based reporting platform that provides comprehensive reporting functionality for a variety of data sources. Reporting Services includes a complete set of tools for you to create, manage, and deliver reports, and APIs that enable developers to integrate or extend data and report processing in custom applications.
Reporting Services tools work within the Microsoft Visual Studio environment and are fully integrated with SQL Server tools and components.
