Set the Default Delivery Extension for Report Manager

You can modify configuration settings to determine which delivery extensions appear first in the Delivered by list of a subscription definition page.

Reporting Services includes E-mail and Windows File Share delivery are extensions. Your report server might have additional delivery extensions if you have deployed custom or third-party extensions to support custom delivery. The availability of a delivery extension depends on whether it is deployed on a report server. The order of a delivery extension appears in the Delivered by list is based on the order of the delivery extension entries in the RSReportServer.config file. 

To use File Share Delivery as the default delivery extension in Report Manager

  1. Open the RSReportServer.config file in a text editor.

  2. Paste the entry in the <Report Server FileShare> section as follows:

    <Extension Name="Report Server FileShare" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.FileShareDeliveryProvider.FileShareUIControl,ReportingServicesFileShareDeliveryProvider">
  3. In <Report Server Email>, change <DefaultDeliveryExtension> to False.

  4. Save the file.
