The Name and Description parameters are required and should not be set to null (Nothing in Visual Basic). The value for Name must be unique.

You must assign at least one task to the role. You cannot combine system-level and item-level tasks within a single role. For more information about tasks, see Tasks and Permissions.

To compile this code example, you must reference the Reporting Services WSDL and import certain namespaces. For more information, see Compiling and Running Code Examples. The following code example uses the CreateRole method to create a user role that has permissions to view folders and reports:

using System;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;

class Sample
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      ReportingService2010 rs = new ReportingService2010();
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

      try
      {
         string name = "Report Browser";
         string desc = "View folders and reports.";

         Task[] tasks = rs.ListTasks("All");
         List<string> taskIDs = new List<string>();

         foreach (Task t in tasks)
         {
            taskIDs.Add(t.TaskID);
         }

         rs.CreateRole(name, desc, taskIDs.ToArray());
      }
      catch (SoapException e)
      {
         Console.WriteLine(e.Detail.InnerXml.ToString());
      }
   }
}
