I'm using Reporting Services web services endpoint ReportService2005.asmx with 2008 report server R2 and I'm facing some issues in getting the data source names for a report definition using the GetItemDataSources web service. The problem is that the data
source names returned are different from the names of the actual data sources on the report server.
The report has the following data sources:
0 1 _0 _A Data Source
And the names returned by the GetItemDataSources for 2008 report server R2 is:
AutoGen_0 AutoGen_1 AutoGen__0 AutoGen__A Data_Source
When I make the same calls using a 2005 report server, the names returned are the same as that in the report definition.
To summarize, only numeric data source names are changed to "Autogen_<number>"(eg. Autogen_0), data source names beginning with "_" are changed to "Autogen_<data source name>"(eg. AutoGen__A) and spaces are
replaced by an "_".
What is the problem for the data source names returned for 2008 report server R2? Or has there been any change in the way in which report server stores the data source names?
