How can I remove auth page when open Report Server page?


    I try to use Power BI ReportServer in LAN.

    Everything goes well except when I open  the report on ReportServer there always prompt a login page。

    So how can I remove it?Hard code the username\pass in somewhere?


Hi @muchinski , I just have tried this way, it will only work when open the server from ie on the server computer, when open  from other computer,it still need auth .

Hi @wildcatstar,


Yes, I meant to do that on all user computers, OR don't use IP address to access the reports, OR don't use FQDN.

I think that if you change the Authentication method, maybe you will fall in problems with SSAS connections, because SSAS accept only Windows Authentication (NTLM (default) if in the same SSRS machine or Kerberos  if SSAS is in a remote server)


Please, read this article:

Hi @muchinski,

   I have read the artile, and I don't think it is a proper solution to require user to change the IE config.

   In that way, maybe input username and password is more easier.

   If custom auth is not supportted by SSAS connection, may be I have to wait until the report server support embed data,

   just like excel,etc.

Hi @wildcatstar,


I am not telling that it is not supported, you could just use a fixed user in a SSAS connection and that’s ok, but usually we use Windows Authentication. Also, you would need to validate it before every update, which for me is not a good deal.

Anyway, just to clarify (I just tested - and it is the same that the article said): It will ask for authentication if I access the reports using:
-- FQDN - http://inhouse-rep1.<MyDomain>.de/Reports
-- IP -
But if I access using a URL like the following or add the site on Local Intranet, windows authentication works as expected (at least for me)
-- http://inhouse-rep1/Reports


I hope to have helped 🙂

Hi @muchinski, Thank you very much for your help. I can use "http://localhost/Reports" to visit the report on server computer, without make any change to IE config. But how can I use a NON FQDN name to visit the server from other computers in LAN ,just like your "inhouse-rep1" ? I don't know where and how to configure it.

Hi @wildcatstar,


On the Report Server Configuration Manager, create one URL for you Web Service URL and Web Portal URL choosing 'All Assigned' instead of choosing your IP.

By default, it will create one address with the name of your server. You can also create a CNAME (DNS) on AD and use it if you want to.




Hi @muchinski ,   I have just asked the network manager, and he said there is no AD in our lan, and the only way to visit the server is use IP Address. So... I think I have to go back to the way of using a custom auth. But just as you said,it has problems. I can open the server ,view the folders,but I can not view the reports

Solution for the exception that is taken for power Bi reports while using custom security extension :

2017-08-03 11:35:16.8710|ERROR|90|Failure in conceptualschema| RequestID = 5a55046e-0305-361b-e214-71fd8b0d79ff ClientSessionID = 3aee7b14-c24b-d6ac-237d-38809550b1bb System.NotSupportedException: PortalIdentity is not supported.

   at Microsoft.PowerBI.ReportServer.ExploreHost.UserIdentityConnectionImpersonatorFactory.CreateImpersonator(IIdentity identity)

   at Microsoft.PowerBI.ReportServer.ExploreHost.RSPowerViewHandler.GetModelInfo(String id)


The data source attempting to use integrated security which is not supported with custom Auth. If you edit the data source for the report and use stored credentials it should work.
