Limit Report Rendering Extension in Report Manager (PDF Only)

SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) provides web tool named Report Manager. Report Manager is used for managing reports.

When we run the report published on report server we have “save” icon where we have different rendering option like Excel, Word, PDF, XML etc.


We can limit the report rendering extensions. For example if we want to disable all the format and want only PDF then we need to configure some settings in config file.

Go to the ReportServer installed directory. path is somewhat similar to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS11.SQL2012\Reporting Services\ReportServer

Edit rsreportserver.config file.

Got to Export Option in the file as shown below:-


In above screen , with all render option there is visibility option, set it to false whichever we want to hide.

let say our user wants PDF only then,

We need to modify the above file as given below:-


Adding condition Visible=false/> in front of Rendering options which are not required.

Lets Run the report on reportserver and see the export options.
