Hi Folks,

Could you please let me know how to get the Report URL(i,e the URL gets generated after the report is created) from SSRS designer.
If I want to deploy the single report to Report manager in two ways.
1.one is the normal deployment
2.Other is to deploy the report in Excel(If i have the Report parameters in Report ,is it possible to render the report to Excel and then to deploy to Report manager?)

Regards
Tom

You design your report using Report Designer in Visual Studio. Try SSDT
In order to do this you could use the BI template for generating reports as you can get the help of report wizard. Once you make sure it works in SSDT you deploy it to the Report Server (I will assume you would have configured Reporting Services in Native Mode). Once it is on the server you can see your report on the report server which will appear automatically in Report Manager.

You could also create reports using Report Builder. Here is an example although it is for different product. The links in the article give you more details.

The articles are also on my blog. Kindly search for 'Report builder' in my blog.

Hi Tom,

Question #1 - how to get the report URL - SSRS has a built in expression that will show the URL on the report once it is deployed.
- In a text box, edit the expression
- at the bottom on the left side, in the Category box, click on Built-in Fields
- there is a field called ReportServerUrl
Once the report is deployed, this will show the URL when you run the report.

Deployment questions - I am not sure if the #2 option you listed is possible.
Here are the 2 methods I use:
1. in Visual Studio, right click on the solution name (in the Solution Explorer window) and choose properties. Set the properties for TargetServerURL and TargetReportFolder to the location to deploy to. Then right click on the report and choose Deploy. It will use the settings of the project.
2. Go to your Reporting Services website. Navigate to the folder where you want the report to go. Click the Upload button. Find the location of the file you want to deploy.

Does that answer your questions?

Hi Guys,

Thank you so much for your replies.Your replies and suggestions helped me to gain more knowledge.Thanks for that.
I have also googled from my end and I found that we can't render the Excel with Parameters in it.We can only render the filtered data after inputting parameters from a report.

You can pass the parameters automatically using the URL if that helps? Then you could render directly to excel.
