Report Builder Getting Started Menu Customization

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

When click once application (Report Builder) is selected, I want to customize Menu option (New Report, New Dataset, Open, Recent) based on who is the authorized user. For example, if I have a user who falls into role of creating dataset only, they should see only "New Dataset" option. Is it possible?


Thanks in advance.

Disabling the "Open with Report Builder" menu item



We are using MOSS 2007 integrated with SQL Reporting Services. In the report viewer, there is a menu item called "Open With Report Builder". We do not want this menu item to be displayed or, alternately, would like to disable it. I assumed that this could be done by configuring the SSRS integration property "Enable ad-hoc reporting" in central admin to FALSE. Alas, this is not the case. The report builder menu item is still there and when you select it, it starts to install the application. How can I either disable or hide this menu item in the report viewer?

Thank You.

Report Builder 3.0 with WSS not showing Report Builder Report on New menu


We have installed Report Builder 3.0 with WSS and can edit a report in the ReportingServices list of reports using the dropdown menu on the report name.

We added the Report Builder Report via Library Settings > Content Types But we do not see the option on the New menu at the top of the ReportingServices page. To be sure it was working correctly we added other content types and we see those on the new menu when opened.

Are there any setting that need to be made in any config files anywhere to allow the report builder options to be available on the new menu on a document list?

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu

Report Builder in sharepoint is not working.



We are using below Topology in production
Topology is 3 servers:
Sever1: Sharepoint Form (wss3.0 no MOSS)
Sever2: Sql server 2008
Server3: Reporting Services 2008
Operating system on 3 servers: Windows server 2008.
Authentication mode: Form based authentication.

 SSRS reports are working success fully in SharePoint using above topology, The issue is through SharePoint library when i am trying to access report builder reports the client is installing, after enter the credentials it is not connecting to server and am getting the following error "Unable to connecting server at 'http://servername/Reports/Forms/AllItems.aspx'  please use different url

The above issue on production only.

But in local development box there is no problem (in my development box SharePoint t, database (sql) and reporting service sits on my box only)

Thanks for your he

Report Builder Report manage data sources - relink programmatically

As part of a site definition solution several report builder report rdl files are uploaded to a report folder.  After a site is created with the defintion, the reports must be manually re-linked to the data source through the UI context menu ("Manage Data Sources").  I have been trying to figure out how to do the re-linking programmatically without luck.  Any ideas?

Report Builder 3.0 'backward' compatibility??

I've been asked to deploy Report Builder -- a new deployment, it's never been deployed before. Can RB 3.0 create reports against all versions of SQL Server -- 2005, 2008, and 2008 R2?? I understand that they might not be backward-compatible with earlier versions of Report Builder. Can Report Builder 3.0-created reports be used and seen within WSS 3.0 running on SQL 2008?? -- what would be necessary to make this happen?? The present reporting server files installed to the Citrix servers and SharePoint server are SQL 2008 Reporting Services files (10.x), I imagine installing Report Builder 3.0 would be compatible?? Thank you, Tom

SSRS 2008 R2 - Query builder freezes and needs to be shut down Report Builder 3 when attempting quie

Hi, In SSRS, using Report Builder 3.0 (SSRS R2), after choosing a Report Model as the report's embedded data source, launched "Query Deisinger…" from GUI to build data source in report.  First 1-2 attempts at querying underlying data source (Oracle back-end), are successful, but later attempts freeze application to the point where application freezes and overall Report Builder application needs to be forcibly shut-down. This system freeze has occurred when referencing tables containing a very small number of records as well as larger data sets.  Suspect that application freezing may be caused by timing-out of connection to back-end database. but I am not sure. Any suggestion to solve this issue? Thanks   Environment - Distributed deployment Server1(report_srv) --Windows server 2003R2 64bit, Installed sql server 2008R2 reporting service, configuration tools Server2 (report_db_srv) --windows server 2003r2 64bit, sql server 2005 for report server database

Our idea is to change report tool from Discoverer to Report Builder. Many thanks

Report Builder 2.0 Permissions

I've recently moved from SSRS 2008 Standard/SharePoint Integrated to SSRS 2008 Standard/Native.   I have some users with full permissions to a single folder within the SSRS site.  They need to access ReportBuilder.  In my testing, I've added my user account to SystemUser on site settings, as well as given it full permissions to the folder.  However, I keep receiving insufficient permissions exceptions when trying to connect with ReportBuilder.  For the site URL in ReportBuilder, I've tried both http://servername/reportserver and http://servername/reportserver/folder_name.   Any ideas? Thanks
