Sets the secure connection level of the report server.


Public Sub SetSecureConnectionLevel(Level as Integer, _
    ByRef HRESULT as Int32)
public void SetSecureConnectionLevel(Int32 Level, 
    out Int32 HRESULT);


  • Level
    An integer value representing a secure connection level.

    [out] Value indicating whether the call succeeded or failed.

Return Value

Returns an HRESULT indicating success or failure of the method call. A value of 0 indicates that the method call was successful. A non-zero value indicates that an error has occurred.


When called, the report server SecureConnectionLevel property is set to the value specified. A value of 0 indicates that SSL is turned off. A value greater than or equal to 1 indicates that SSL is turned on.

  • When the value is set, the SecureConnectionLevel element in the report server configuration file is changed, and the URLRoot element in the configuration file is set to use "https://" if the specified Level is greater than or equal to 1, or "http://" if the specified Level is 0.

In SQL Server 2008 R2, SecureConnectionLevel is made an on/off switch, default value is 0. For any value greater than or equal to 1 passed through SetSecureConnectionLevel method API, SSL is considered on and the configuration property SecureConnectionLevel is set accordingly in the rsreportserver.config file. Values of 2 and 3 are still allowed for backward compatibility.
