Who removed it should can put it back.
Or you can do it by yourself if you know the SSRS service account credentials.

So everyone is using the same credentials? :O
What about the second option? Using the SSRS service account credentials. Please don't tell me it's also the same credential.

Me and my partner are using the same credentials to log into the clients computer.  They have credentials but I don't know them.  I will probable just have to call them

Ok, a backup. I think is better to call them.

Usually the local admins from the Report Server (the server that has SSRS installed) have access to the portal. If you have a local admin account, you can log in to the server using that account and give yourself access again.

LIONKING - are you talking about SSMS? I tried that with my credentials and everything is grayed out

No, I was talking about logging in to the report server, per se. Not SSMS.
Anyhow, if they're able to provide you with a fresh set of credentials, I guess that's your best (and easiest) bet.
