Export PDF/A from SSRS Report Manager/ Report Viewer

Hello, I am looking to exporting my SSRS reports to PDF/A files. After installing Aspose pdf for Reporting Services I’ve got a drop down option in SSRS Report Manager/Report Viewer which allows me to export the rendered report to Aspose pdf.

I wanted to know if Aspose gives out of the box support for exporting the reports as PDF/A files from SSRS Report Manager/Report Viewer, as the option currently saves the report in normal pdf format.

Please do comment if you need further explanation of my problem.

Hi Safkat,

Thanks for contacting support.

I am pleased to share that Aspose.Pdf for Reporting Services supports the feature to render .RDL file in PDF/A format. For further information, please visit

In case you encounter any issue, please feel free to contact.

Thanks for your response.

Let me tell where I have been able to go so far. I have a button(Pdf vaia Aspose.pdf) on SSRS viewer that allows me to export the report as pdf.

I have made changes to the rsreportserver.config file for the PdfConformance to be added.
The screenshot is added below:

Now I have a simple report with two textboxes and a parameter named PdfConformance that takes a default value PdfA1A .

So clicking on the export button should result in a pdf/a file. but still it exports as normal pdf.

It’d really be helpful if you kindly point out if any mistakes have been made or if I need to do anything else to make it working.

N.B : I am working on SSRS 2012.

have further tested the scenario and I am able to reproduce the same problem that resultant files are not PDF/A compliant. For the
sake of correction, I have logged it in our issue tracking system as PDFREP-33450. We will
investigate this issue in details and will keep you updated on the status of a
correction. <o:p></o:p>

We apologize for your inconvenience.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as PDFREP-33450) have been fixed in Aspose.Pdf for Reporting Services 2.9.0.
