and SSRS

I'm fairly new to SSRS web deployment but have created tons of reports.  

Here's my scenario for my new  job. The company I work for has a app that has it's own security (user name and pswd) build in. At this time there are over 2K users/dealers. So we really don't want to go the AD route (huge initial setup headache and constant maintenance costs, too) to authenticate users/dealers for reporting purposes.
We're running SQL Server RS 2014... So, the solution I'm looking at is to have the user log into the app.  They then  will Click on a URL link to gain access to our SSRS web page with acess to all the reports there.   Then, via a parmeter I'd needto pass to SSRS, I'd filter on all the reports by that users id.

Any help would be great.

Yes it would be good solution to give access to a particular user to the report server and use those credentials while calling ssrs reports in Web application.

Then the user just need to log into the application and you can provide the url of the reports for which user have rights.

Since all the reports will be accessed with the credentials of the stored user so each user will not be required to re authenticate the same.

Thanks for the validation of my idea.    You rock!

So, can you provide an example of what a URL would look like that has the embedded stored users parameters embeded?

I also need to pass a parm to the SSRS instance too?    When the user/dealer logs onto the app, they utilize a login and password that is validated by the app. Part of that data needs to be passed into the SSRS instance to filter on that user/dealer.

Any additional examples would REALLY help me along the correct path to complete this exercise.

Thanks again,

Here is an example showing how you can pass parameter to ssrs report in a web application.

Hope this will guide you

Thanks for that.

Where do I add the generic user name and password to that code?

Thanks again.
