Reports are not available when iDashboards is running in embedded viewer mode.
Running a report via the right click menu is not available for a user logged in as Embedded Viewer Mode. Also, if you have the chart drilldown to a report you will receive the following error message:
This is an expected error for which there are a couple of reasons. The first reason is security; most viewer modes are running from public access accounts. Allowing a public access account to create reports that they can take away from your business could lead to a security issues. The second reason is that generating reports is a fairly resource intensive task. The reports are generated on the hosting server and then pushed up to the client. Depending on the server you could quickly overload the server and cause the system to crash, depending on the number of embedded viewer mode logins and the number of reports being run.
