How to: Add Report Server Content Types to a Library (SharePoint Integrated Mode)

New: 12 December 2006

Reporting Services provides predefined content types that can be used to create new shared data source (.rsds) files, report model (.smdl) files, and Report Builder report definition (.rdl) files. To create new documents based on these content types, you must register the content type with the library you are using. Adding a Report Builder Report, Report Model, and Report Data Source content type to a library enables the New command so that you can create new documents of that type.

To add content types to a library, you must be a site administrator or have Full Control level of permission.

To enable content type management for the library

  1. Open the library for which you want to enable multiple content types. On the library menu bar, you should see the following menus: New, Upload, Actions, and Settings. If you do not see Settings, you do not have permission to add a content type.

  2. On the Settings menu, click Document Library Settings.

  3. Under General Settings, click Advanced settings.

  4. In the Content Types section, select Yes to allow multiple content types.

  5. Change any other settings that you want, and then click OK.

To add report server content types
