Set default options for Report Builder
In Report Builder, you can set a number of useful defaults to make report authoring easier and faster. For example, if you can set or change the default report server, Report Builder saves your reports to the same report server automatically, unless you specify otherwise.
- In Report Builder, select File > Options.
UI element list
Use this report server or SharePoint site by default
Your administrator may have configured this setting. The value can be a well-formed URL starting with http:// or https://. This setting determines which data source connections appear by default in the Table/Matrix and Chart wizards. In addition, your reports are processed on this server and you can reference resources from this server.
If you select a different report server, you may need to restart Report Builder in order for this change to take effect.
Publish report parts to this folder by default
Report Builder saves report parts that you publish to this folder. If the folder does not exist yet and you have permissions to create folders on the report server, Report Builder creates this folder.
You do not need to restart Report Builder for this setting to take effect.
Report parts are deprecated for all releases of SQL Server Reporting Services starting with SQL Server Reporting Services 2019 and all releases of Power BI Report Server starting with Power BI Report Server September 2022.
