Returns a list of subscriptions that a user has created for a given report. The list includes both standard and data-driven subscriptions.

 cli::array <ReportService2005::Subscription ^> ^ ListSubscriptions(System::String ^ Report, System::String ^ Owner);
public ReportService2005.Subscription[] ListSubscriptions (string Report, string Owner);
member this.ListSubscriptions : string * string -> ReportService2005.Subscription[]
Public Function ListSubscriptions (Report As String, Owner As String) As Subscription()



The full path name of the report.


The user name for which to retrieve the subscriptions.


An array of Subscription objects that represent the user's subscriptions for a given report.


To compile the following code example, you must reference the Reporting Services WSDL and import certain namespaces. For more information, see Compiling and Running Code Examples. The following example code uses the ListSubscriptions method to retrieve a list of subscriptions for the Employee Sales Summary report, which is owned by the user myDomain\myUserName:

The table below shows header and permissions information on this operation.

SOAP Headers (Out) ServerInfoHeaderValue
Required Permissions (ReadSubscription on the report AND the user is the subscription owner) OR ReadAnySubscription

You can supply a null (Nothing in Visual Basic) value for the Owner and Report parameters. The information that the ListSubscriptions method returns varies depending on the parameters that are submitted:

  • If the values of both Owner and Report are null, the method returns all subscriptions for all reports that the current user has permission to view.

  • If only the Owner parameter is submitted, the method returns all subscriptions for all reports that the specified user has created and has permission to view.

  • If only the Report parameter is submitted, the method returns all subscriptions for all users of the specified report that the current user has permission to view.

  • If valid values are supplied for both the Owner parameter and Report parameter, the method returns all subscriptions for the specified report that the specified user created and has permission to view.
