Configure SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2 To Use SSL


The very brief outline of how to setup SSL access in SQL Server Reporting Services:

First install the SSL Certificate in IIS or Server Certificates:
  • Open MMC
  • Go to File --> Add Snapin
  • Select Certificates
  • Import Certificate
Use Reporting Services Configuration Manager to setup the the SSL / 443 in SSRS.

Next edit RSReportServer.config and add the new report server URL 

eg.

<ReportServerUrl>https://server_name/ReportServer_PRD</ReportServerUrl>

Restart the reporting service for the settings to take affect.

Note: The report server has to be accessed using the path configured above. This must be a valid resolvable path and must conform to the SSL certificate issuer address. To test the procedure has worked just edit the hosts file and try connecting with the URL above.
