How can I display an SSRS Report in an iFrame?

Is there some setting somewhere to enable the content to be viewed?

I know bing allows their page to be viewed in an iFrame, whereas google does not.

This is what I get when I place an iFrame WebPart on my SharePoint page.

iFrame Error Message

Later, I want to be able to display this report on another site, so I want to use the iFrame feature.

Check if X-Frame-Options is set to SAMEORIGIN on the SSRS web server? You can check it in web.config or using the IIS management console

Is there a way to disable X-FRAME-OPTIONS response header, or at least modify it?

  • REVA, your answer led me closer to the solution. I made sure that my url had the same protocol and domain, and it worked. However, I am interested in allowing a different origin to access this report in an iFrame. Do you know of any other resources directly related to that?

  • You can try X-FRAME-OPTIONS ALLOW-FROM siteurl, however it may not be supported in all browsers.
