How to: Add Report Server Content Types to a Library (Reporting Services in SharePoint Integrated Mode)

Reporting Services provides predefined content types that are used to manage shared data source (.rsds) files, report models (.smdl), and Report Builder report definition (.rdl) files. Adding a Report Builder Report, Report Model, and Report Data Source content type to a library enables the New command so that you can create new documents of that type.

Watch a video about these procedures.

To add content types to a library, you must be a site administrator or have Full Control level of permission.

With SharePoint 2010 products, the Reporting Services content types and content type management will automatically be enabled in all document libraries for existing site collections created from the following site template types:

  • Business Intelligence Center

Sites created after the Reporting Services integration will not have the Reporting Services content types enabled. You can enable the content types for each document library following the procedures in this topic enable for site collections per the following steps:

  • To enable the content types and content management in all document libraries in a new Business Intelligence Center site, go to the site settings and then to site collection features. Then disable and enable the Report Server Integration Feature.

  • If you want to enable the content types and content management for multiple Business Intelligence Center sites, go to General Applications settings and activate the Reporting Services feature for specific sites or all sites.
