public function FindItems (
    Folder : String, 
    BooleanOperator : BooleanOperatorEnum, 
    Conditions : SearchCondition[]
) : CatalogItem[]

Parameters

  • Folder
    The full path name of the folder to search. To search the entire report server database, specify the root folder (/).
  • BooleanOperator
    The logical operator that is applied to connect the search conditions. Possible values are AND and OR. The default value is AND.
  • Conditions
    An array of SearchCondition objects that defines the property names and values for which to search.

Return Value

An array of CatalogItem objects in the report server database that correspond to the specified search criteria.

Remarks

The report server does not support wildcard characters in the middle of the search condition. Wildcard characters include %, _, [, ], ^, and -. If a wildcard character is present, the report server treats the character literally.

Only once instance of a property name can be supplied in the set of search conditions.

The search functionality of FindItems is case-insensitive.

Applications that use FindItems typically accept user input for specific properties and property values. The searchable properties are Name, Description, CreatedBy, CreationDate, ModifiedBy, and ModifiedDate. The items that are returned are only those for which a user has Read Properties permission.

Example

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 searches the report server database for all reports whose names contain the word "Sales":

Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols

      condition.Value = "Sales"

      Dim conditions(0) As SearchCondition
      conditions(0) = condition

      Try
         items = rs.FindItems("/", BooleanOperatorEnum.Or, conditions)
