Represents a delivery extension in SQL Server Reporting Services.

Namespace:  Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces
Assemblies:   Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces (in Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces.dll)
  Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.UI.WebParts (in Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.UI.WebParts.dll)


Public Interface IDeliveryExtension _
    Inherits IExtension
Dim instance As IDeliveryExtension
public interface IDeliveryExtension : IExtension
public interface class IDeliveryExtension : IExtension
type IDeliveryExtension =  
        interface IExtension
public interface IDeliveryExtension extends IExtension

The IDeliveryExtension type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public property ExtensionSettings Gets a list of settings that are used by the delivery extension to create a notification or report.
Public property IsPrivilegedUser Indicates whether the user is allowed access to all the functionality of the extension.
Public property LocalizedName Gets the localized name of the extension to be displayed in a user interface. (Inherited from IExtension.)
Public property ReportServerInformation Gets information about the report server that the delivery extension requires in order to perform deliveries.



  Name Description
Public method Deliver Delivers the report notification to a user based on the contents of the notification.
Public method SetConfiguration Used to pass custom configuration data to an extension. (Inherited from IExtension.)
Public method ValidateUserData Used to determine whether a given set of delivery extension settings are valid.



The IDeliveryExtension interface enables an you to implement a delivery extension class, which represents a way that report notifications can be delivered to users. For more information about the IDeliveryExtension interface, see Implementing the IDeliveryExtension Interface for a Delivery Extension.

An application does not create an instance of the IDeliveryExtension interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that implements IDeliveryExtension.

Classes that implement IDeliveryExtension must implement all inherited members, and typically define additional members to add the delivery provider-specific functionality. For example, the IDeliveryExtension interface defines the Deliver method. In turn, the e-mail delivery provider that ships with Reporting Services implements the Deliver method in order to send reports notifications via e-mail.
