Transmitting additional cookies is helpful in a single sign-on authentication solution that requires not only the report server authentication cookies, but also cookies from a third-party authentication system.

To enable additional cookies to be transmitted through HTTP requests when using Report Manager, set the following elements in the RSWebApplication.config file:
