A few people have had this problem now: They create a report add-in for Office Accounting but when they deploy to the end users the reports does not show up in the menu. One of those ”but it works for me!!” problems…


A typical reason can be that you forgot to set the AreaAccess property when you registered the report. The value of this property determines what access rights the user needs to be able to see the report:


descriptor.AreaAccess = new PermissionArea[] {

                PermissionArea.ManageCompanyFA, PermissionArea.GeneralLedgerTransactionsFA}


Naturally there is another side to this; remember to ensure that a user with the rights you assign actually has access to the data you are trying to show, if not the report may just fail when you try to get the data from the database.
