I am trying to create a web based portal to allow users to run reports from the report server. Each report has a link to it on the page like so:

http://<ServerName>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fUniversity+Systems%2fAdvisor+Scheduling%2fAdvisor_Scheduling_Report&rs:Command=Render

The trouble is that when the link is clicked, the report server has to ask for a log in. What I would like to do is somehow bypass that log in screen and somehow pass along a username\password to the report server. I've looked online and the solutions seem to entail swapping reporting services' log in panel with one of your own and I want to not have a log in panel at all. Can this be done and if so, how?

why not store credentials in report server itself? or configure it to use context of logged in user. I hope all users are mapped to valid report server role

I store the datasource credentials in the report. Also, the portal is secured by our homegrown security and I'd rather not have them log in twice.
