  • SubscriptionID
    The ID of the subscription.
  • ExtensionSettings
    [out] An ExtensionSettings object that contains a list of settings that are specific to the delivery extension.
  • Description
    [out] A meaningful description that is displayed to users.
  • Active
    [out] An ActiveState object that contains the active state of the subscription.
  • Status
    [out] The status of the subscription.
  • EventType
    [out] The type of event that triggers the subscription.
  • MatchData
    [out] The data that is associated with the specified type of event. This is used by an event processing extension to match the subscription with an event that has fired.
  • Parameters
    [out] An array of ParameterValue objects that contains a list of parameters for the report.

Return Value

The user ID of the owner of the subscription.


To compile this code example, you must reference the Reporting Services WSDL and import certain namespaces. For more information, see Compiling and Running Code Examples. The following code example uses the GetSubscriptionProperties method to retrieve the properties of one of the subscriptions for the Product Catalog report, which is owned by the user myDomain\myUserName. The subscription is not data driven, so the code assumes that all the settings for the delivery extension are static parameter values (ParameterValue objects):
