The full XML for this file can be found in the code download bundle, but Figure 1 shows contents of the file with all nodes collapsed. Figure 1 After the document element, the RDL files breaks down into the following major sections: Document Element — defines the name of the report and the schema to which our RDL must conform Body — defines all of the report items Page — page headers and footers, if used DataSources — defines all dedicated and shared data sources DataSets — defines each data set used in the report ReportParameters — all parameters defined for the report Code— any custom code, such as custom functions At the very top of the code is the Document element, as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2 The document element is called Report — no surprise there. To see this in action, I added an invalid tag to the report and received the error message shown in Figure 3.

Figure 3 Since the change I made did not conform to the published schema, the change was immediately flagged as an error because the report definition is now invalid. NOTE: It is possible to create custom report items with a.

NET language. See this MSDN article for more details.

To create a report server project

You can expand the XML to review the code of any of the sections of the report. This understanding of the report designer gives you the ability to manually tweak a report when necessary.

One example I remember quite well involved a sub-report that, on the Report Manager site, was located in a different folder than the main report. The only way I could embed the sub-report was to manually change the link inside the XML. However, knowing RDL empowers you in other ways too. If you wish, you can roll your own report builder tool or RDL generator. Configuring Reports for Deployment Developing reports on your own computer can be quite fun and sometimes challenging, but the reports are not useful until they are published to a location that is accessible to the people who need to see the reports.

There are many ways to publish reports, including to SharePoint or within custom applications. However, the easiest way to publish and manage reports is with the built-in Report Manager. This is also called Native Mode deployment. Viewing the Reporting Services Configuration The first article in the series walked through installing and configuring Report Manager and so if you have followed along you probably have Report Manager running on your computer right now.

Figure 5 After clicking Connect, you can review the various properties and settings of the Report Server. Figure 7 If SSRS and Report Manager are not configured, go back to the first article in the series to configure them before continuing to the next section. Once the reports are published, they can be viewed by anyone with the correct permissions.

To deploy the ChartProject reports, you must configure the location of Report Manager in the project properties.

Figure 8 shows the properties I am using. For example, the TargetDatasourceFolder property shows where all of the shared data sources will end up in Report Manager. By default, the TargetReportFolder has the same name as the project but you can change this value if required. Take a look at the OverwriteDatasets property, which is set to False. In many cases, you will create reports against a development or QA server instead of production. When this value is False, it will not let you overwrite an existing datasource with the same name.

This will prevent your development settings from changing the production settings. Local Security Issues When working on Windows 7 or 8, you may try to perform tasks that need Administrator permissions. Even if your account is an administrator account, those operations are blocked by default.

Execute a SQL Server Reporting Services report from Integration Services Package

This is not a bug, but a security feature to prevent malicious code from operating on your system. This security feature will prevent you from publishing and viewing reports on Report Manager locally. One way to get around this is to launch SSDT-BI by holding down the shift key and right-clicking on the link, and then select Run as administrator. You will then be able to publish reports locally.

When launching your favorite web browser to view Report Manager, you will need to do the same thing. There is a way to set permissions for your account in SSRS to avoid this issue. Follow the directions in this MSDN article to learn more.

Deploying Reports Now that the TargetServerURL is configured in your project, and you have addressed the local security issue, you are ready to publish some reports! Right-click the project name inside the Solution Explorer and select Deploy.

The Output window should pop up to show you the status. Once my reports were deployed, I saw the messages in Figure 9. Figure 9 If your reports did not deploy, you will have to review the error messages and troubleshoot.

Most of the time, the problems stem from an incorrect or missing TargetServerURL or from permissions issues. Viewing the Published Reports Now that you have published the reports, you will want to view them on the Report Manager site.

If everything worked as expected, Report Manger should display the contents of the Home folder the top-level folder in the Report Server folder hierarchy. In this case, you should see within it two sub-folders, as shown in Figure Figure 10 Click the ChartProject folder.

You will see all of the reports from the project. Click one of the reports to run it. At this point, if you have errors connecting to the report, you can navigate to the data source set up in the Data Sources folder to troubleshoot the connection.

If the ReportDemo database and the Report Manager site are all located on the same server, such as your laptop, your credentials should work to run the report. If they are located on separate servers, your network account credentials from the Report Manager will not pass through to the database. There are two ways around this issue. The other method is to configure Kerberos Authentication.

Automating Reports with SSRS Subscriptions

Talk to your network administrators. When learning how to develop reports, I recommend running everything on one computer.

Figure 11 shows the Indicators report and the breadcrumb trail at the top for navigating back to any of the folders. Figure 11 None of these reports have parameters, but if they did, the parameter controls would be found right above the report.

You have deployed the entire project, but you can deploy just one report if you wish.

To do so, just right-click the report and select Deploy. You can also redeploy the project or a report, after making changes.

If you redeploy, the reports will be overwritten without a prompt. However, it is very important that only the correct eyes see the reports. On your own computer, you will not need to worry about security, but you may need to configure it on your enterprise wide SSRS deployment. In many companies, the person developing reports is not the same person securing them. However, it is useful to understand how the security works, even if it is not your job, just in case you are called in to help troubleshoot an issue.

You can set up permissions at the folder or report level. I strongly recommend that permissions are set up only at the folder level. You allow users to view reports in a given folder by assigning the appropriate roles, either to individual users or to an Active Directory group of which the user is a member. I recommend giving permissions at the AD level, not to individuals. By default, folders and reports inherit permissions from folders higher in the hierarchy. For example, if the Everyone network group has permission to run reports at the Home folder level, then Everyone also has permission to view reports in all sub-folders, unless you enforce security by overriding the default permissions on each sub-folder, so that only the appropriate users can view the reports in each one.

There are many ways to do this but, for example, within the Home folder you might create folders for specific departments, and then assign permissions to the AD group for the departments.

Inside the department folders you could have a Managers folder with reports only for managers. Figure 12 shows how this might look for the IT department. Figure 12 Once the folders are in place, hover older a folder name to bring up a dropdown list of tasks and select Security or open the appropriate folder, select Folder Settings from the top menu, and then open the Security page.

Figure 13 shows the Security page, though note that you will only see groups such as the Everyone group if you are running in a network with Active Directory. Figure 13 Click Edit Item Security and you will be prompted with a message telling you that you will break the inheritance from the parent folder.

Click OK. Click New Role Assignment. This opens a page where you can assign roles to a named user or AD group, as shown in Figure Figure 14 To allow a user or group to view reports only, assign the Browser role.

Remember that when assigning permission to a folder, all the reports in the folder will inherit those permissions. Always assign permissions to folders, not reports, to keep security manageable.

There are also two roles at the instance level: System Administrator and System User. To manage these permissions, click the Site Settings link at the top right of the page.Enter the email address you signed up with and we'll email you a reset link.

Enter the world of Rendering Extensions. Additionally, there are some options for writing out the reports. SSRS can be used to manage and publish enrichment and interactive reports, key performance indicators, datasets and mobile reports.

Licenced CPOL. Now it will show up the below screen, click next. SSRS Create a simple report We will show you how to create a very simple parameter and filter your data using the parameter. Design and format the report layout.
