Retrieves a data source from a SharePoint document library.
Assembly: Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Store (in Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Store.dll)
- Type: Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.RepositoryLocation
The location of the data source in the SharePoint document library. Only the ItemUrl property must be defined.
Return valueType: Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.DataSource
The requested data source, or null if it does not exist.
To apply appropriate user permissions before returning a retrieved data source or exposing its results to an external caller, call the ApplyUserPermissionsToDatasource(DataSource) method.
The following code example shows how to retrieve a data source from the repository.
Before you can compile this code example, you must do the following:
Configure your development environment and create a C# class library project in Visual Studio. For information about configuring a development environment, see Start: Set up the development environment for SharePoint 2013.
Add the Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Client and Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.ServerCommon DLLs as references to your project. For more information about PerformancePoint Services DLLs, see PerformancePoint Services DLLs Used in Development Scenarios.
Add the following using directive to your class: using Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards;.
Create a method that defines a string variable named "relativePath" to store the server-relative path to the object. The following example path sets the object identifier to "5": /BI Center/Data Connections for PerformancePoint/5_.000.
Paste the following code example into the new method.
// Create a RepositoryLocation object to represent the location of the data source. // The constructor takes the server-relative path to the data source. RepositoryLocation dataSourceLocation = new RepositoryLocation(relativePath); // This example assumes the code is running in a Web Part on a front-end Web server. // If this code is running within a service application, then you can call the // SPDataStore.GlobalStore.GetDataSource method directly. DataSource requestedDataSource = BIMonitoringServiceApplicationProxy.Default.GetDataSource(dataSourceLocation);
