SSRS report doesnt display on Chrome


Since last 4 weeks or so, our SSRS reports display doesn't show anything on the chrome browser. It renders the report, shows loading sign and goes blank. The issue is with RS 2012 & 2016. The same report works on IE. RS 2016 is compatible.

Quite simply Chrome sometimes does nasty things with how SSRS reports are rendered, always has. There is a plug in for chrome called IE Tab (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ie-tab/hehijbfgiekmjfkfjpbkbammjbdenadd?hl=en)

This can be set up work as IE within chrome for certain websites. May be worth a go, I like it, works well. To be honest though I just use IE when it comes to SSRS as it work.

Hope that's some help.

Quick update:

Just to support the answer, in 2016 SSRS supposed to work correctly but it doesn't always. One of the issues is that it simply renders a white page. To be honest I'm not sure if this has been fixed in later releases so it would make sense to ensure you're on the latest service pack and CU (current build is 13.0.4435.0. That's SP1 CU3).

If the update to latests still doesn't fix the issue there is an alternative extension for Chrome:

"This extension allows Microsoft Reporting Services reports to render correctly in Google Chrome.

This is a simple extension that automatically fixes a CSS oversight on Microsoft's part that results in SSRS reports appearing as a blank white page in all modern web browsers.

If you are attempting to view Microsoft Reporting Services reports using Google Chrome and all that you see is a blank page, this extension will solve your problem."


Let me know how you get on, best of luck.

SSRS and Chrome has always been an issue until 2016. As you stated 2016 is support and there "should" be little difference to the rendering.

Have you checked the execution logs and the SSRS reportserver logs? Also, what SP and CU do you have applied?

SSRS 2016 is indeed 'supposed' to work correctly in chrome but unfortunately it doesn't always, I've added an extra link to my answer that may help further :)
