Notice that the target server URL does not include a reference to the report server virtual directory as it does when deploying to a native-mode report server.In this case, you deploy to a Share Point site that is configured for Reporting Services as described in Chapter 2.Typically, you also configure data sources to associate reports with a different test or production database.
She also explains how to use the Report Builder to provide "self-service" reporting to end users, allowing them to build custom reports based on report parts and shared datasets.
Part 4 focuses on the Report Definition Language (RDL), publishing reports, and Report Builder 3.0.
The process of deploying reports includes a variety of tasks that are covered in this chapter.
At minimum, you place report definition files on the report server to make reports available to users.
You can also configure report properties, such as report parameter default values, execution options, or history management properties, to control what data displays in a report, the amount of time before the user request that the data is retrieved for the report, and the amount of time a snapshot of a report is saved on the report server.
Important To complete the procedures in this chapter, you must be assigned to the Content Manager role on a native-mode report server or to the Owners role on an integrated-mode report server.Report developers typically deploy a report directly from Business Intelligence Development Studio (BI Dev Studio), while report server administrators often deploy a report manually by using Report Manager or programmatically by using the Rs utility (described more fully in Chapter 16, “Programming Reporting Services”).A solution in BI Dev Studio can contain one or more report projects, each of which can contain one or more reports.Replace the example URL if you have an alternate site available.Important Even if you are deploying to your local computer, you must specify the server name in the URL rather than localhost.If you are a local administrator on the server, you have the correct role assignment by default.
