How to: Publish a Report to a SharePoint Library

To publish a report to a SharePoint site configured for SharePoint integration, you must set the project properties in Report Designer. In the project properties, all references to servers, reports, and shared data sources must be fully qualified URLs. In the report definition, all references to subreports, drillthrough reports, and resources such as Web-based images, must be fully qualified URLS.

You must have Member or Owner permission on the SharePoint site to set the properties on the project. For more information, see Publishing Data Sources and Reports to a SharePoint Site.

To publish a report to a SharePoint site

  1. In Business Intelligence Development Studio, open an existing or new Report Server project.

  2. From the Project menu, click Properties. The <project>Property Pages dialog box opens.

  3. In the Configuration list, select the name of a solution build configuration to use to build and publish your report. The current configuration is listed as Active(<configuration>).

  4. If you want to publish the shared data sources in your project and overwrite previously published shared data sources, set OverwriteDataSources to True.

  5. (Optional) For TargetDataSourceFolder, type a URL to a SharePoint library or library folder (for example, http://TestServer/TestSite/Documents/DataSources).

    If you do not specify a value, the TargetReportFolder value is used.

  6. For TargetReportFolder, type a URL to a library or library folder (for example, http://TestServer/TestSite/Documents/Reports).

  7. For TargetServerURL, type a URL to a SharePoint top-level site or subsite. If you do not specify a site, the default top-level site is used (for example, https://servername, https://servername/site, or https://servername/site/subsite).

  8. Click OK. 

  9. In Solution Explorer, right-click the report you want to publish, and click Deploy. The report is published to the location specified in TargetReportFolder. Deployment errors appear in the Output window.
