I have seen a few questions pop up regarding how to configure Management Reporter and Microsoft® SharePoint®. Today we are going to look at the setup steps needed to get this integration working.
Management Reporter 2012 currently supports SharePoint versions 2007 and 2010. It supports both SharePoint Foundation and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Below is a list of the most common issues and the solutions to those problems.
Clicking on a Management Reporter report in Microsoft SharePoint does not bring up the report and the page looks to be blank. This error could be one of the following:
1. Under Document Library Settings and Advanced Settings set “Allow Management of Content Types” from no to yes
2. Under Content Types in your Document Library Settings page click on “Add from Existing Content Types” and add the “Link to Document” content type
3. Now that the above settings have been turned on, generate a Management Reporter 2012 report to a SharePoint location again
You receive the following error in the Report Queue:
Unable to create the related report link in (location specified).
The service account running the Management Reporter Process Service does not have the Design permission on the SharePoint library.
