ExecutionLogStorage history of report executions bringing back the same username in ssrs 2008

I'm trying to establish who's run which ssrs report between two dates. I've been querying the executionlogstorage table, and, although it does report some usernames, the majority seem to be the default server report username. I can't seem to establish a pattern though to diagnose what's wrong. Does anyone have any tips on how to fix this please?

Yes, the same issue with usernames. Our reports are published on our intranet. For argument's sake, the default server username for intranet reports is DOMAIN/IISXXX$. If I then run the report e.g. DOMAIN/me, I would expect to see in executionlog2 and executionlogstorage DOMAIN/me being the username not DOMAIN/IISXXX$ which it's doing.

Just a wild guess, but could it be the credentials for the data source. For the data source you can specifiy if you want to use specific credentials or Windows integrated security.

Well that was my first suspicion, but, on looking at the reports more closely, they all seem to be using the same setup in report manager, i.e. whether they're specified in the report or using a shared data source, with Credentials Stored Securely in the Report Server selected, and an username and password specified, and nothing else selected.

When I run a report from Report Manager is shows Domain/me in the log. When the report is run by a subscription it is NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM.
By 'intranet' do you mean Sharepoint? In that case the report might always be executed by Sharepoint resulting in the same user for every report.

Maybe you can find some useful information here:

No, (although we will be in the future). It's a intranet developed in .net we've built ourselves with a reports page that passes parameters in to an SSRS report.

Seen that page but the same data is populated in those tables too.

Well, I guess the reports are executed by IIS then. Don't think there is a way around this. I'm afraid you need to add logging functionality to your Intranet. Just a time stamp with username and report is probably sufficient. You can link that data to the SSRS log.
