Update Properties of Folders and Reports (Azure SQL Reporting)
Updated: May 9, 2014
|SQL Reporting will discontinue service on October 31, 2014. See this FAQ for details. For reporting on Microsoft Azure, visit Virtual Machines on WindowsAzure.com.|
You can update properties of folders and reports that reside on the SQL Reporting report server. Folders have only a few properties: name and description. Reports have many properties, but on the SQL Reporting server, you can update only the name and description properties. If you want to update other properties, you must update them on premises and then either upload or deploy the report to the SQL Reporting server again. For more information, see Deploy a Report Project (Azure SQL Reporting) and Upload a Report (Azure SQL Reporting).
To update the name or description of an item
Open a Web browser, and launch the Azure Platform Management Portal by specifying the appropriate Microsoft Azure credentials. Open the SQL Reporting server.

Note To reverse the navigation, click the parent folder in the navigation sidebar or click the reverse arrow at the top of the page. Click the reverse arrow again to return to the root node. The root node is the service name that was provided when the service was created.
