How to: Publish a Shared Data Source to a SharePoint Library from Report Designer (SharePoint Integrated Mode)

New: 12 December 2006

To publish a shared data source to a report server running in SharePoint integrated mode, you need to set the report project properties in Report Designer. For a report server running in SharePoint integrated mode, all references to shared data sources, servers, reports, and resources must be fully qualified URLs.

You must have Member or Owner permission on the SharePoint site.

To publish a shared data source

  1. In SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio, open your existing or new Report Server project.

  2. From the Project menu, click Properties. The *<project>*Property Pages dialog box opens.

  3. Choose the Configuration you use to publish to a SharePoint site. For example, Active(Debug) or Production.

  4. In the Deployment section, set the optional TargetDataSourceFolder, type a URL to a library or library folder. For example, http://TestServer/TestSite/Documents/DataSources.

    If left blank, this defaults to the TargetReportFolder value.

  5. For TargetReportFolder, type a URL to a library or library folder. For example, http://TestServer/TestSite/Documents.

  6. For TargetServerURL, type a URL to a SharePoint top-level site or subsite. If you do not specify a site, the default top-level site is used. For example, http://*servername*, http://*servername*/*site* or http://*servername*/*site*/*subsite*.

  7. Click OK.

  8. In Solution Explorer, right-click on the shared data source you want to publish, and click Deploy. The data source is published to the location specified in TargetDataSourceFolder. Deployment errors appear in the Output window.
