Add Reports to a Team Project

Visual Studio 2010

If you add support for reporting to a team project, members of that project can use default reports to track progress and customize reports to better meet their specific needs.


Before you can add support for reporting to a team project, the team project collection that hosts the team project must be configured to support reporting. For more information, see Add a Report Server to a Team Project Collection and Add a Report Server to Your Deployment.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the following groups:

  • The Team Foundation Administrators group, or your Edit server-level information permission must be set to Allow.

  • The Content Managers group or the TFS Content Managers group in SQL Server Reporting Services.

  • To create a report folder as part of adding support for reporting to a team project, the service account that the Visual Studio Team Foundation Background Job Agent (TFSService) uses must have certain permissions. For more information, see Service Accounts and Dependencies in Team Foundation Server and Team Foundation Background Job Agent.

For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To add reports to a team project

  1. In Report Manager, upload each report that you want to move to the appropriate folder.

    For more information, see the following topic on the Microsoft Web site: Uploading Files to a Folder.

  2. In Report Manager, edit each report to change the data source to the new report server.

    For more information, see the following topic on the Microsoft Web site: How to: Configure Data Source Properties for a Report.

  3. After you have uploaded and edited each report, repair the connection to the SharePoint Web application that supports the portals for the team projects that use the reports.

    For more information, see the next procedure.

To repair the connection to a SharePoint Web application

  1. On the server that hosts the application tier for the deployment, open the administration console for Team Foundation. 

    For more information, see Open the Team Foundation Administration Console.

  2. Click SharePoint Web Applications, and in the list of Web applications, click the Web application that supports the collection that contains this project.

    The Repair Connection button appears after you select a Web application in the list.

  3. Click Repair Connection, and in the Repair the Connection to a SharePoint Web Application dialog box, click Repair.

  4. When the Status window shows Reconnect operation succeeded, click Close.
