  • ItemPath
    Type: System.String
    The fully qualified URL of the item with which to associate the cache refresh plan, including the file name and, in SharePoint mode, the extension.
  • Description
    Type: System.String
    The description of the cache refresh plan. If this parameter is set to nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) (Nothing in Visual Basic), the report server automatically generates a decription.
  • EventType
    Type: System.String
    The type of event that triggers the cache refresh. Currently, the valid value is RefreshCache. If this parameter is set to nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) (Nothing is Visual Basic), the default value of RefreshCache is used.
  • MatchData
    Type: System.String
    The data that is associated with the specified EventType parameter. This must be a serialized ScheduleDefinition specific to the item in ItemPath, or the schedule ID of a shared schedule.

Return Value

Type: System.String
A string that represents the unique identifier for the cache refresh plan.

The EventType used to create cache refresh plans is RefreshCache. The MatchData parameter depends on the event type. If the event is a TimedSubscription event, a ScheduleDefinition object is required as the MatchData parameter. You must first serialize the ScheduleDefinition object as XML in order to pass it as a string value and create a cache refresh plan based on the schedule.

You can use the XmlSerializer class to convert your object class to an XML string automatically.


The following example loads a report into the cache and refreshes the cache daily.
