Allows users to create new reports in the SCSM Data Warehouse.

Syntax

Import-FIMReportDefinition –InstallSqlScriptFile <String> -ReportDefinitionFile <String> -UninstallSqlScriptFile <String> [-CompanyName <String>] [-Copyright <String>] [-DelaySign] [-SealingKeyFile <String>] [-SealManagementPack] [-ServiceManagerCredential <PSCredential>] [-ServiceManagerServer <String>] –ManagementPackFile <String> [-Verbose] [-Debug] [-ErrorAction <ActionPreference>] [-WarningAction <ActionPreference>] [-ErrorVariable <String>] [-WariningVariable <String>] [-OutVariable <String>] [-OutBuffer <Int32>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]

Detailed Description

This PowerShell cmdlet allows users to import new reports into the FIM reporting system. Typically, this cmdlet is run after creating new schema using the Import-FIMReportingSchemaDefinition cmdlet; however, it may also be run by itself if you wish to create new reports without adding new schema elements to the Data Warehouse.

Parameters

-InstallSqlScriptFile <String>

This required parameter is defined as the path to the installation script file on the local file system. This is the file that contains the SQL script which creates a new stored procedure in the SCSM Data Warehouse which will be used to return report data for viewing in the SCSM console and SSRS.

WarningWarning
While the SCSM SDK does not require that you seal your management packs before importing them, it is nonetheless highly recommended to do so. Failure to do so may result in being unable to synchronize your management packs to the Data Warehouse. To seal your management packs using the PowerShell interface, specify the -SealMP parameter and provide a sealing key file (which can be generated using the strong name (sn) tool in Windows).

This parameter specifies whether or not the report management pack being imported should be sealed. Sealing a management pack prevents it from being modified after it has been imported into the SCSM Data Warehouse.
