IBIMonitoringStore.CreateReportView(String, ReportView)

The following code example shows how to use a private method to create a report and to call CreateReportView(String, ReportView) to save it to the repository.

Before you can compile this code example, you must do the following:

  • Configure your development environment and create a C# class library project in Visual Studio. For information about configuring a development environment, see Start: Set up the development environment for SharePoint 2013.

  • Add the Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Client, Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.ServerCommon, Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Store, and System.Drawing DLLs as references to your project. For more information about PerformancePoint Services DLLs, see PerformancePoint Services DLLs Used in Development Scenarios.

  • Add the following using directives to your class.

    using Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards;
    using Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Analytics;
    using Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.OlapReportViews;
    using Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.Store;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Globalization;
    using System.IO;
    using System.Xml.Serialization;
// Create an analytic report view, based on the following parameters:
//   - reportName is the name for the report.
//   - listUrl is the server-relative URL of the list to save the report to. Example: 
//      "/BI Center/Lists/PerformancePoint Content" 
//   - ds is the data source to use for the report.
// This method returns the new report.

    // into the report's CustomData property.

    // Set up the data source in the query state so the "Revert to Design mode" option in
    // Dashboard Designer works correctly.

        "{ [Customer].[Customer Geography].[All Customers].CHILDREN } ON ROWS " +
        "FROM [Direct Sales] WHERE ( [Measures].[Internet Gross Profit] ) " +

    // Define chart settings.
    AnalyticChartReportViewData chartViewData = new AnalyticChartReportViewData();
    chartViewData.ChartType = AnalyticChartType.Line;
    chartViewData.BackgroundColor = Color.FloralWhite;

    // Serialize the chart settings into the ReportViewData property.
    XmlSerializer chartViewSerializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(AnalyticChartReportViewData));
    StringBuilder buffer = new StringBuilder(1024);
    using (StringWriter sw = new StringWriter(buffer, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture))
        chartViewSerializer.Serialize(sw, chartViewData);

    olapViewData.ReportViewData = buffer.ToString();

    // Set the CustomData property to the serialized OLAPReportViewData object.
    newReport.CustomData = OLAPReportViewData.Serialize(olapViewData);

    // Set the filter's beginpoints and endpoints.

    // Call the CreateReportView method to save the new report to the specified list.
    // TODO: Handle exceptions from this call.
    return SPDataStore.GlobalDataStore.CreateReportView(listUrl, newReport);
