Required Permissions Depends on the item type of Item:

- Report: UpdateDatasource

SetItemDataSources returns an error when data source properties are set on a linked report item type.

An rsDataSourceNotFound error is returned if a data source that is not associated with the item is passed into the method.

When the Item type is a model, the specified value must be a single DataSourceReference. In this situation, if you supply an array of DataSource objects, an error is returned.

When the type of Item specified is a model, the DataSourceReference specified cannot reference a model or have data source credentials set to Prompt.

If multiple data sources exist on an item, only those data sources that are being changed may be submitted.
