Hi All,

I have created nearly 50 shared DataSource , which is supported for nearly 300 RDLs. The Password credential for that 50 Database will be changed on monthly basis. Can someone suggest me alternate way to update the password in SharedDatasource without going to ReportManager. Also let me know if there is any option to change the password for Datasource from SSMS , its URGENT!!!!!


Cheers,
JB

That's a good question. Not sure how much you will be able to do through SSMS.

You might be able to set and test it programmatically. If so you can probably setup a Powershell script to do what you want.

Hi Joie,

Thanks for your reponse. Apologize me for delay in response. Since i was out of office i was not able to check this thread. Do you have any powershell script for the same. Also confirm whether i can handle it from Remote Server.

Thanks,
JB

You should be able to script it out using the RS.exe utility or by using some .NET and the SSRS webservice.

RS.exe uses VBScript files. In those script files, you specify the properties of the data source.
An example:

Automated SSRS deployment with the RS utility

One thing you have to be careful about is that you do not lose the link between the shared data source and the reports.

Thanks,

Do you have any such VB Script to change the Password , And more doubt. Using this i shud change the password one by one or at a time can i change the password. But i am not satisified with this option. Because DBA teams wants to update only using SSMS Sad .

Sorry, I don't have any examples myself.

You cannot update the password through SSMS. SSRS is usually not managed through SSMS (I think you can only change the security roles in SSMS).
