	Properties : Property[]
)

Parameters

DataSource

The name of the data source.

Parent

The full path name of the parent folder that contains the data source.

Overwrite

A Boolean expression that indicates whether an existing data source with the same name in the location specified should be overwritten.

Definition

A DataSourceDefinition object that describes the connection properties for the data source.

Properties

An array of Property objects that defines the property names and values to set for the data source.

If errors occur, the data source is not created.


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 creates a new data source in the root folder of the report server database:

Imports System
Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols

Class Sample
   Public Shared Sub Main()
      Dim rs As New ReportingService2005()
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials

      Dim name As String = "AdventureWorks"
      Dim parent As String = "/"

      ' Define the data source definition.
      Dim definition As New DataSourceDefinition()
      definition.CredentialRetrieval = CredentialRetrievalEnum.Integrated
      definition.ConnectString = "data source=(local);initial catalog=AdventureWorks"
      definition.Enabled = True
      definition.EnabledSpecified = True
      definition.Extension = "SQL"
      definition.ImpersonateUserSpecified = False
      'Use the default prompt string.
      definition.Prompt = Nothing
      definition.WindowsCredentials = False

      Try
         rs.CreateDataSource(name, parent, False, definition, Nothing)

      Catch e As SoapException
         Console.WriteLine(e.Detail.InnerXml.ToString())
      End Try
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'Sample
using System;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;

class Sample
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      ReportingService2005 rs = new ReportingService2005();
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

      string name = "AdventureWorks";
      string parent ="/";

      // Define the data source definition.
      DataSourceDefinition definition = new DataSourceDefinition();
      definition.CredentialRetrieval = CredentialRetrievalEnum.Integrated;
      definition.ConnectString = "data source=(local);initial catalog=AdventureWorks";
      definition.Enabled = true;
      definition.EnabledSpecified = true;
      definition.Extension = "SQL";
      definition.ImpersonateUserSpecified = false;
      //Use the default prompt string.
      definition.Prompt = null;
      definition.WindowsCredentials = false;

      try
      {
         rs.CreateDataSource(name, parent, false, definition, null);
      }

      catch (SoapException e)
      {
         Console.WriteLine(e.Detail.InnerXml.ToString()); 
      }
   }
