    Is there any way i can use a rdlx.json file created by ActiveReportJS in the ActiveReports 16 .NET version? So i can generate my reports in the backend? Or is it possible to convert rdlx.json files to .rdlx files?

    Or do you have any other suggestions how i can generate my reports (as pdf) in our .NET 6 backend application

    ActiveReportsJS and ActiveReports.NET are two different products, and they are generally not compatible, so unfortunately it’s not possible to use rdlx-json file with ActiveReports.NET.

    To run and export a rdlx-json report on the server-side with .NET backend, an application could run an instance of a headless browser, load an HTML page that loads and exports a report using JS, get the output back to the back-end code. We have the sample that shows this approach on

    It’s a node.js app, but the same method could be used with .NET.
