How to: Deploy Reports to a Report Server (Visual Studio Reporting Tools for Microsoft Dynamics AX)

Dynamics AX 2009

You can deploy reports to a report server from within Microsoft Dynamics AX or from Microsoft Visual Studio. In order to deploy reports from within Microsoft Dynamics AX, you must first import the reports into the application. For more information, see How to: Import Reports into Microsoft Dynamics AX (Visual Studio Reporting Tools for Microsoft Dynamics AX). When you deploy reports from within Microsoft Dynamics AX, the reports are deployed for all the translated languages. When you deploy reports from Microsoft Visual Studio, the reports are deployed for the neutral (invariant) language only. For more information about deployment, see Report Integration and Customization Overview (Visual Studio Reporting Tools for Microsoft Dynamics AX). The following procedures explain how to deploy reports to a report server.

To deploy reports from within Microsoft Dynamics AX

  1. In the AOT, expand the Report Libraries node.

  2. Right-click the report library that you want to deploy, and then click Deploy. This launches the deployment utility.

  3. In the dialog box, select any additional report libraries that you want to deploy, and then click Next. You can select multiple report libraries to deploy.

  4. If necessary, override connection strings, and then click Next. You are prompted to override connection strings when you use data sources that have been defined in the project where a connection string has been provided.

  5. Review any messages that are logged during the deployment process, and then click Finish.

    You can also launch the deployment utility from outside Microsoft Dynamics AX. From the Start menu, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, and then click Microsoft Dynamics 2009 Reports Deployment. The steps for using the deployment utility are the same as above.

To deploy reports from Microsoft Visual Studio

  • In Solution Explorer, right-click the reporting project that contains the reports that you want to deploy, and then click Deploy. Reports are deployed for the neutral (invariant) language only.
