Data Source (Credentials Tab, Report Designer)
Use the Credentials tab of the Data Source dialog box to display and modify credentials for a data source in the report. The credentials that you provide will be used to access the data source and cache a copy of the data for report preview. For more information about how preview data is cached, see Previewing Reports. For more information about credentials, see Specifying Credential and Connection Information.
- Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)
Select this option to use Windows Authentication.
- Use a specific user name and password
Select this option to provide a specific user name and password. For shared data sources: when you publish the report server project to the target server, the user name and password are saved as the stored credentials for the database. If you want to use the user name and password as Windows credentials, you can edit the properties for the published shared data source on the target server. For more information, see How to: Create, Delete, or Modify a Shared Data Source (Report Manager).
