Report Server Database
The report server database is a SQL Server database that stores Reporting Services data such as report definitions, report meta data, cached reports, snapshots, and resources. It also stores security settings, encrypted data, scheduling and delivery data, and extension information.
The report server database can exist on a server or cluster that is separate from the report server, or it can be installed on the same computer as the report server. For more information about installing and configuring the report server database, see Installing Reporting Services.
The report server database is accessed through the report server. Report Manager, Report Designer, and the command line utilities all use programmatic interfaces to communicate with the report server database. For more information about programming for the report server database, see Reporting Services Extensibility.
