The IExtension interface enables you to implement a localized extension name and to process extension-specific configuration information stored in the Reporting Services configuration file. IExtension represents an extension in Reporting Services. The IExtension interface can be used to build custom data, delivery, and rendering extensions.

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

Classes that implement IExtension must implement all inherited members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality.
