SetSecureConnectionLevel Method (WMI MSReportServer_ConfigurationSetting)

Sets the secure connection level of the report server.

Public Sub SetSecureConnectionLevel(Level as Integer, _
    ByRef HRESULT as Int32)

public void SetSecureConnectionLevel(Int32 Level, 
    out Int32 HRESULT);


An integer value representing a secure connection level.


[out] Value indicating whether the call succeeded or failed.

Returns an HRESULT indicating success or failure of the method call. A value of 0 indicates that the method call was successful. A non-zero value indicates that an error has occurred.

When called, the report server SecureConnectionLevel property is set to the value specified.

Valid values are:

  • 0 – Least secure; the report server does not check for a secure connection.

  • 1 – Inbound passwords and inbound/outbound connections are rejected and not transmitted if the connection is not secure.

  • 2 – Rendered reports are not transmitted if the connection is not secure.

  • 3 – All SOAP API calls are rejected if the connection is not secure.

When the value is set, the SecureConnectionLevel element in the report server configuration file is changed, and the URLRoot element in the configuration file is set to use "https://" if the specified Level is 2 or 3, or "http://" if the specified Level is 0 or 1.

In SQL Server 2008, the dependency on IIS is removed. Setup will only set values 0 or 2, but user can set 1 or 3 explicitly. All values are honored.
