URL Access

URL Access

SQL Server 2000

The report server is accessible through URL requests. URL requests contain parameters that are processed by the report server. The way in which the report server handles URL requests depends on the parameters, parameter prefixes, and type of item that are included in the URL. For more information about specific parameter prefixes, see Using Parameter Prefixes on a URL.

You can use URL access to embed hyperlinks to reports and other report server items in the applications that you develop. Report server URLs adhere to the URL formatting guidelines as proposed by the joint World Wide Web Consortium W3C/IETF draft standard. URL access is compatible with most Internet browsers or applications that support standard URL addressing.
