Type: ReportService2005.Property[]
An array of Property objects that defines the system properties and values to set for a report server.

Users can add additional custom system properties that are not reserved by the system. If a property specified in the Property array does not exist, it is created. If a value for a property exists, it is overwritten. You cannot create or remove reserved system properties. Depending on the system property being set, the functionality of the report server may change. For a list of reserved system properties, see Report Server System Properties. If errors occur, no properties are set.

You can remove the value of a property by setting the property to an empty value.

To compile the following 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 system property named Description in the report server database:

using System;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;

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

      Property setProp = new Property();
      setProp.Name = "Description";
      setProp.Value = "My report server that resides on the computer named RSSERVER1.";
      Property[] props = new Property[1];
      props[0] = setProp;

         rs.SetSystemProperties( props );
         Console.WriteLine( "New site property set." );

      catch (SoapException ex)
         Console.WriteLine( ex.Detail.OuterXml);
