SSRS - hide properties, history and subscription tabs

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I have a report I created in SQL Server reporting services, the report is called from an application I developed that simply directs the user to report manager page where they can enter the parameters and preview the report.  I want to hide or disable the properties, history and subscription tabs on top; it seems to confuse the general user population.  The application uses the anonymous access login on the server.

Any thoughts?

Hi.. you could try giving them a link that isnt the report manager view. To do this, go to the URL:


.. replacing 'reportservername' with the actual name of your report server and navigate to the folder/report. This will open your report in a web view without any of the menu items but will have the parameter and export format toolbar. Simply copy the URL and replace the URL in your application with this one.
