This method only works with a Custom security extension. Please see Web Service Authentication for more information.

The LogonUser method authenticates the specified user to the Report Server Web service when custom authentication has been configured.

LogonUser must be called over Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). The method fails if it is not called securely. Upon successful authentication, the report server Web service generates an authentication cookie and returns the cookie in the HTTPS header. The response is returned over SSL.
