Page Navigation Disabled in SSRS 2019 for reports migrated from SSRS 2016

For some reports (we think just older ones that have been migrated from SSRS 2016 to SSRS 2019), when the report returns more than one page of rows, only the first page displays in the GUI. The GUI also doesn’t acknowledge that there are more than one page of results / will not allow the user to navigate to subsequent pages or enter a page number.

Some additional details...

The issue occurs only on the second, and subsequent times, running the report, after the report server is re-started. The first time running the report, it's possible to navigate from one page to the next, until the last page is reached. I do notice that the total number of pages displays with a '?' until you reach the last page.

The issue does not occur in Visual Studio Preview, only after the report has been deployed to the report server.

The issue can be resolved by editing the report in Report Builder and re-deploying. But we are looking for another solution so that we do not have to rebuild all of the reports or use Report Builder.

Does anyone else see this pagination bug / behavior with reports moved from SSRS 2016 to SSRS 2019?

    Hi @Katie Jo
    The 2016 RDL schema has not changed since SSRS2016, but it does not rule out that your previous reports have not been upgraded successfully and are backward compatible. You can check whether the RDL schema version of Visual Studio is consistent with the RDL schema version on the report server. see more: Find the Report Definition Schema Version (SSRS).

    Adding some additional information: I found that turning on the setting to cache a report will address the page navigation issue for individual reports. It still does not seem to work for reports that include several sub-reports.
