SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Service) integration on SharePoint 2019.
Part 1

Officially SSRS Integrated mode is deprecated in SQL Server 2017 and SharePoint 2019, Now It is not a part of the SQL Server 2017. However, organizations could continue to use SSRS versions 2017 in SharePoint 2019. This is not supported in SharePoint 2019, which means that integrated mode isn’t an option at all with SharePoint 2019.
But the good news is, there is some workaround to integrate SSRS 2017 with SharePoint 20149 using the report viewer web part.

This topic is divided into three parts.
The first part is to install and configure SSRS (SQL server reporting service) on the SQL server 2017.
The second part is, configure DataSource for the SharePoint, create Dataset from the DataSource, and generate and publish reports from the dataset.
And the second part is to deploying the report viewer web part as a farm solution in SharePoint and integrate with SSRS.

    @boredadmin we have a 3 server farm, reports work only in one server where reporting service is installed. 401 Not authorized error is shown in the other two servers. Do you know why this behavior?

  • Great Article, it was helpful. What about SQL server 2016 and SharePoint 2019? Cant find any documentation on this combination. Have you tried SSRS with SP 2019 and SQLRS 2016 ?
