Project Property Pages (General Tab, Report Designer)

Updated: 12 December 2006

Use the property pages on the General tab to configure deployment properties for a Report Server project. After you define Configuration properties on this tab, you can select a configuration from the Solution Configurations drop-down list on the toolbar.

Configuration

Select the configuration to edit. Initially, three configurations are available: Debug, DebugLocal, and Production. To create additional configurations, click Configuration Manager.

Configuration Manager

Choose this option to manage configurations for the entire solution or to add additional configurations. For more information, see the Microsoft Visual Studio documentation.

StartItem

Select the report that is displayed in the Web browser after the project is published to the report server or in the preview window when the project is run locally. A start item is required for configurations that build but do not deploy the project. It is optional for configurations that deploy the project.

OverwriteDataSources

Select True to overwrite the data source on the server with the data source in the project when the reports are published. Select False to leave the existing data source on the server.

TargetDataSourceFolder

The name of the folder in which to store the published shared data sources. If you do not specify a folder, the data source is published to the same folder as the report. If the folder does not exist on the report server, Report Designer creates the folder when the reports are published.

When publishing to a report server running in native mode, specify the full path of the folder hierarchy starting at the root. For example, Folder1/Folder2/Folder3.

When publishing to a report server running in SharePoint integrated mode, use a URL to the SharePoint library. For example, http://<servername>/<site>/Documents/MyFolder.

TargetReportFolder

The name of the folder in which to store the published reports. By default, this is the name of the report project. If the folder does not exist on the report server, Report Designer creates the folder when the reports are published.

When publishing to a report server running in native mode, specify the full path of the folder hierarchy starting at the root. If a folder is located within another folder, include the path to the folder starting at the root. For example, Folder1/Folder2/Folder3.

When publishing to a report server running in SharePoint integrated mode, use a URL to SharePoint library. For example, http://<servername>/<site>/Documents/MyFolder.

TargetServerURL

The URL of the target report server. Before you publish a report, you must set this property to a valid report server URL.

When publishing to a report server running in native mode, use the URL of the virtual directory of the report server. For example, http://<server>/reportserver. This is the virtual directory of the report server, not Report Manager. By default, the report server is installed in a virtual directory named "reportserver".

When publishing to a report server running in SharePoint integrated mode, use a URL to a SharePoint top-level site or subsite. If you do not specify a site, the default top-level site is used. For example, http://servername, http://servername/site or http://servername/site/subsite.

For more information about URL syntax and examples, see Deploying Reports, Models, and Shared Data Sources to a SharePoint Site.
