In this hint, I demonstrates How to Hide a breadcrumb navigation link in Reporting Service SharePoint Integrated Mode.

Generally, The breadcrumbs are really helpful for end users to navigate various pages and find their way back from where they came.But sometimes,You might require to hide it to avoid  showing the Report Document Library and lost current view,

SSRS-TopBar-Hidden2

Thence,To hide a breadcrumb navigation link in Reporting Service SharePoint Integrated Mode follow the mentioned steps below :

1-Open “ReportingServices.css” file that has been located on this path

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10_50\Reporting Services\
ReportManager\Styles

SSRS-TopBar-HiddenCSSFile

Note :  This path is for SQL Server 2008 Reporting Service,Regarding  SQL Server 2012 Reporting Service you should use this path :

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS11.MSSQLSERVER\
Reporting Services\ReportManager\Styles

2-Open the file with any appropriate text editor> Find a css element called .topBar.

3- Add display:none; after the open bracket on the first table.msrs-topBreadcrumb element under the .topBar. as shown below:

Note : If your farm consist of more than one server so you need to apply all the previous steps to all servers that already host SRSS.

Alternative Solution

Note : If your farm consist of more than one server so you need to apply all the previous steps to all servers that already host SRSS.

In some cases, the previous solutions might not working on some browsers! thence, to hide breadcrumb you should use “URL Access”

  • Open the report > Check the Report URL and after ? mark > Note rv: QueryString that stand for a relative URL.
  • SSRS-TopBar-HiddenRelativeURLAfter ? mark , add the following word rv:headerarea=none&  as shown

SSRS-TopBar-HiddenRelativeURL2

Below is a list of report viewer parameters for controlling full-page report rendering :

  • rv:HeaderArea [Full, None.Default: Full]
    • Control how the Report Viewer web part’s header is displayed in full-page view.
  • rv:ToolBar [Full, Navigation, None.Default: Full]
    • Control how the ReportViewer web part’s toolbar is displayed in full-page view.
  • rv:ParamMode [Full, Collapsed, Hidden.Default: Full]
    • Control how the ReportViewer web part’s header is displayed in full-page view.
  • rv:AsyncRender [true, false.Default: true]
    • Control whether the report is rendered asynchronously or synchronously.
  • rv:DocMapAreaWidth [Non-negative integer]
    • Control the display width in pixels of the ReportViewer web part’s Document Map area.
  • rv:DocMapMode [Displayed, Collapsed, Hidden.Default: Dislayed]
    • Control the display of the Document Map area of a report.

In the Report Viewer that ships with the SSRS 2008 R2 Add-in for SharePoint the following new Report Viewer parameters are added:

  • rv:DockToolBar [Top, Bottom.Default: Top]
    • Controls whether the ReportViewer web part’s toolbar is docked to the top or bottom.
  • rv:ToolBarItemsDisplayMode [Back= 1, (0x1)Find= 2, (0x2) Page Navigation=4, (0x4) Refresh= 8, (0x8) Zoom= 16, (0x10) AtomFeed= 32, (0x20) Actions MenuPrint= 64, (0x40) Actions MenuExport= 128, (0x80) Actions MenuReportBuilder= 256, (0x100) Actions MenuSubscribe = 512, (0x200) Default: -1 ]
    • Controls turning of or on specific parts of the ReportViewer web part’s toolbar. This is an enumeration field  eg. For no Actions menurv:ToolBarItemsDisplayMode= 63 (or 0x3F); For all of Actions menu only rv:ToolBarItemsDisplayMode= 960 (or 0x3C0)

Enjoy 🙂

  1. Hi. This by far is closest to the issue I’m facing. I want to add rv:HeaderArea=None into my url as well. But I cannot figure out how. We’re using SP 2013 with SSAS in SQL server 2012. Thanks a lot!
