Import All SSRS Reports from SSRS Server into Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2019 Version 16.11.2

We would like to import all SSRS Reports from a specific Folder into a VS 2019/Team Project automatically. Is there anyway to do this ? We know how to do this individually, but with a few hundred reports, we would like to do this automatically, if possible.
Thank you

    Hi @JM12377 ,

    Automatically import all reports from SSRS server into a VS project is impossible ,but you can download all SSRS reports .

    Please refer to this link:

    You can use this statement to generate download links for all reports in the ‘sale’ folder

    SELECT 'http://mySQLServerName/reports/api/v2.0/catalogitems(' + cast(itemid as varchar(256))+ ')/Content/$value' AS url  
            FROM Catalog WHERE Type IN(2,5) AND Path LIKE '%/Sales/%'   

    and then in tab save extention download them all at once


    Best Regards,

    Create a SSRS project, right-mouse click on the project => Add => Existing elements => Mark all report and go.
