I created a report which displays sharepoint list in SSRS using XML as datasource. I can view the report but i cannot create subscription in SSRS.

Here is the error

Subscription cannot be created because the credentials used to run the report are not stored, or if a linked report, the link is no longer valid.

1 Answer 1


This is because SSRS requires a Login to connect to the datasource to process the report when subscription will be occurring at its scheduled time. I would recommend you to store the credential securely into report server.

follow the instruction here.
