Users can also reply to comments & add attachments to their comments, possibly to share screenshots or snippets of data.Digging further into the comment feature we find a new table in the Report Server database that contains the comment data.
To further the discussion related to Mohamed’s post on Reporting Services 2016 What’s new in SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services (SSRS), I wanted to cover the new features and functionality we see in Reporting Services 2017 as RC1 was released last week SQL Server 2017 Reporting Services Release Candidate now available, separately from SQL Server 2017 which reached RC1 a few days prior.
The most widely anticipated new feature of SSRS is the integration of Power BI to give us the Power BI Report Server.
This was generally released back in June as a standalone application and can actually be built upon SQL Server 2016.
Starting from SQL 2016, Reporting Services and Management Studio are now packaged & installed separately with only a web link to each download page within the SQL Server Installation Center so be sure to grab them first if you intend on deploying to a server with no external network access.
There’s been a few minor tweaks to the Report Manager interface, mainly streamlining some button arrangements etc.: View drop down One thing that has impacted me the most in SSRS 2016 is the absence of the report path when viewing search results in list view.
