Surface Area Configuration for Features (Web Service and HTTP Access) - Reporting Services

You can configure the Report Server web service to ignore all Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) requests and URL access requests. Disable HTTP and Web service requests if you do not have client applications that use the Web service, and if you do not require Report Manager, Report Builder, or Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio for this Reporting Services installation.

Enable Web service and URL access

If checked, Reporting Services allows connections using SOAP and URL access.

For more information, see Report Server Web Service and URL Access in SQL Server Books Online.
