    Hi Sarvesh,

    This is already answered in your previous post

    Also here -

    Maybe they didn't want to focus more on SSRS and focus more on Power BI for reporting or had some difficulties in providing support with Azure SQL.. Not sure.. it is simply not supported

    Anyway, you just have the option to use SSRS inside Azure VM.

    Edit #1 - Take a look at similar post -

    @Sarvesh Pandey Thank you for reaching out.

    As confirmed in your previous post, it is currently not possible to use Azure SQL database as the backend for SSRS report server.
    You can use SQL Server on VM or SQL Managed instance for the same.

    We actively listen to asks from customers and prioritize the feature requests accordingly.
    SSIS was not offered as a PaaS offering on Azure initially, but based on interest from customers, it is now available for use with ADF.
