Consider the following scenario:

  • You have an SSRS server that is running in SharePoint integrated mode.
  • A parent report (Main report) that is running on the server has only hidden parameters or has no parameters at all.
  • A child report (Drillthrough report) is running on the same server, and this report has one or more parameters associated with it.
  • You drill through to the child report from the parent report.

In this scenario, the parameter pane of the child report is permanently hidden, and you cannot select or change the parameter values for the child report.


This issue occurs because of a known limitation within SSRS.


To work around this issue, create a dummy parameter for the parent report and make sure that the parameter is set to be visible.
