Native Mode Required Permissions ExecuteReportDefinition AND, depending on the situation:

SharePoint Mode Required Permissions Needs the system property EnableLoadReportDefinition set to true AND, depending on the situation:

  • If Parent exists, but Report does not exist: <xref:Microsoft.SharePoint.SPBasePermissions.AddListItems> on Parent AND <xref:Microsoft.SharePoint.SPBasePermissions.ViewListItems> on data sources and datasets defined in Definition
  • If both Parent and Report exists: same as above AND all of the following permissions on Report:

    • <xref:Microsoft.SharePoint.SPBasePermissions.OpenItems>
    • <xref:Microsoft.SharePoint.SPBasePermissions.ViewListItems>
    • <xref:Microsoft.SharePoint.SPBasePermissions.EditListItems>

An error occurs if the specified folder or document library does not exist.

If the report specified in the Report parameter does not exist at the specified location, the value of Report sets the Globals!ReportName in the RDL for the edit session.

Call the DeleteItem method to delete the report edit session, passing the EditSessionID as a parameter to the DeleteItem method.

Definition cannot include an expression-based connection string. When it does, the rsInvalidParameterValue is returned by this method.

By default, report edit sessions are set to 7200 seconds (2 hours) from last use, making it possible for users to keep a large amount of data in the cache for a prolonged period of time. In some usage patterns, this could lead to a larger load on the RSTempDB database and the report server. In these cases you should consider using LoadReport.
