January 2013

You are currently browsing the monthly archive for January 2013.

As promised yesterday during my SQLUG presentation on Automating SSRS Deployments Using Built-in SQL Server Tools, you can download the slides and demos through this link.

Small disclaimer: you’re free to use the methods presented for your own projects, but I can’t allow that you use the material to deliver the presentation yourself.  Hope you understand.

Keep your eyes on this blog.  I’ll soon be describing a method which you can use to generate the batch files in order to fully automate the deploy process without using a custom .NET application!

Have fun!

SQLUG EventTo start the year nicely, we (my colleague Koen Verbeeck and myself, Valentino Vranken) have decided to join forces and deliver an evening presentation for the SQL Server User Group on the topic of automating SSRS deployments.

If you’re a report developer or if you’re a DBA who’s also responsible for the administration of report servers, I promise you that you’ll get something out of this session!

And I also promise that I won’t bore you too much with slides.  Prepare for a session packed with demos!

The Sessions

Here are some details on what we’ll be covering:

Automating SSRS deployment using built-in SQL Server tools

Have you always wanted to find out what the RS Utility is all about but never dared to ask? Then this session is what you’ve been waiting for!

Join Valentino to discover how rs.exe can be used to automate SSRS report deployment!

Speaker: Valentino Vranken (t)

Level: 300

Leveraging MSBUILD to automate SSRS deployments

Unlike SSIS and SSAS, Reporting Services doesn’t have an easy way to automate deployments. You can work your way around with VBScripts, but isn’t there an alternative?

Yes there is! Koen Verbeeck will show you in this session how the MSBUILD platform can be used to deploy your SSRS projects to the server.

Speaker: Koen Verbeeck (t)

Level: 300
