The report server sets the IsGenerated property on the generated model when GenerateModel is called.

Models are generated by using the credentials specified in the shared data source. As a result, two different users can generate different models from the same data source. Note that when a shared data source is configured to store credentials in the report server, GenerateModel always impersonates the user whose credentials are stored, even if the shared data source is configured to impersonate the currently authenticated user.

When the model is created, the default model item security is applied to the nodes in the model.

When the model definition is generated, custom properties stored in the model definition are propagated as custom properties on the model item in the folder namespace, and new custom property values overwrite existing custom property values.
