How do the File Share account settings are used in SQL Server Reporting Services 2016?

This is feature is applicable only for Native Mode.

In order to specify a single file share account ( a new feature of SQL Server 2016) you must get to the Subscription Settings page of the SQL server 2016 Reporting Services Configuration Manager shown here.


The file share account that you set up here allows you to set a single set of credentials in multiple subscriptions that deliver reports to a file share.

When you want to change credentials you just change the credentials of the file share and you need not change the credentials of every subscription in the shared folder. In the subscriptions in the file share each subscription will specify; Use file share account.

However you may also configure individual subscriptions with specific credentials as well or, have some on file share and some with individual specific credentials.
