How to: Configure the Default Delivery Extension (Report Manager)

New: 12 December 2006

Delivery extensions are used with subscriptions to deliver reports to target locations. Report server e-mail and file share delivery are extensions that are included with Reporting Services. Your report server might have additional delivery extensions if you have deployed custom or third-party extensions to support custom delivery.

Generally, the order of the delivery extension in a drop-down list is based on the order of the delivery extension entries in the RSReportServer.config file. However, if you are using Report Manager to create a subscription, you can specify which delivery extension appears first in the list when you create a subscription.

If you do not explicitly configure a default delivery extension, Report Manager uses report server e-mail as the default. If the report server is not configured for e-mail delivery, file share delivery becomes the default delivery type.

If you subsequently configure e-mail delivery, but decide that you prefer file share delivery or some other delivery extension as the default, you can modify the configuration settings to specify a new default value.

  1. Open the RSWebApplication.config file in a text editor.

  2. Paste the entry in the <Report Server FileShare> section as follows:

    <Extension Name="Report Server FileShare" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.FileShareDeliveryProvider.FileShareUIControl,ReportingServicesFileShareDeliveryProvider">
  3. In <Report Server Email>, change <DefaultDeliveryExtension> to False.

  4. Save the file.
