Deploying a Custom Report Item

New: 5 December 2005

To deploy a custom report item in SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services, you must modify the report server configuration files and copy the design-time and run-time component assemblies into the appropriate application folders for both Report Designer and the report server.

To deploy a custom report item
  1. Edit the rsreportdesigner.config file to configure the custom report item run-time and design-time components for use in the designer. Note that the ReportItemName entry must match the CustomReportItemAttribute attribute used in your CustomReportItemDesigner class. For example:

    <ReportItems>
       <ReportItem Name="Polygons" Type="Microsoft.Samples.ReportingServices.PolygonsCCustomReportItem,PolygonsCRI"/>
    </ReportItems>
    <ReportItemDesigner>
       <ReportItem Name="Polygons" Type="Microsoft.Samples.ReportingServices.PolygonsDesigner, PolygonsDesigner" />
    </ReportItemDesigner>
    <ReportItemConverter>
       <Converter Source="Chart" Target="Polygons" Type="Microsoft.Samples.ReportingServices.PolygonsConverter, PolygonsDesigner" />
    </ReportItemConverter>
    
  2. Edit the rsreportserver.config file to register the custom report item run-time component. For example:

    <ReportItems>
       <ReportItem Name="Polygons" Type=" Microsoft.Samples.ReportingServices.PolygonsCCustomReportItem,PolygonsCRI"/>
    </ReportItems>
    
  3. Edit the rsssrvpolicy.config file to add a CodeGroup that grants the proper permissions to the custom report item. For example:

    <CodeGroup 
       class="UnionCodeGroup" 
       version="1" 
       PermissionSetName="FullTrust"
       Description="This code group grants MyCustomReportItem.dll FullTrust permission. ">
       <IMembershipCondition 
          class="UrlMembershipCondition"
          version="1"
       Url="C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.3\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin\MyCustomReportItem.dll" />
    </CodeGroup>
    
  4. Copy the custom report item run-time component DLL to the \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies and \Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.3\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin directories.

  5. Copy the custom report item design-time component DLL to the \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies directory.
