Updated: February 25, 2016

Represents a delivery extension in SQL Server Reporting Services.

Namespace:   Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces
Assemblies:   Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces (in Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces.dll)
  Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.UI.WebParts (in Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.UI.WebParts.dll)

public interface IDeliveryExtension : IExtension


Gets a list of settings that are used by the delivery extension to create a notification or report.


Indicates whether the user is allowed access to all the functionality of the extension.


Gets the localized name of the extension to be displayed in a user interface.(Inherited from IExtension.)


Gets information about the report server that the delivery extension requires in order to perform deliveries.


Delivers the report notification to a user based on the contents of the notification.


Used to pass custom configuration data to an extension.(Inherited from IExtension.)


Used to determine whether a given set of delivery extension settings are valid.

The IDeliveryExtension interface enables an you to implement a delivery extension class, which represents a way that report notifications can be delivered to users. For more information about the IDeliveryExtension interface, see Implementing the IDeliveryExtension Interface for a Delivery Extension.

An application does not create an instance of the IDeliveryExtension interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that implements IDeliveryExtension.

Classes that implement IDeliveryExtension must implement all inherited members, and typically define additional members to add the delivery provider-specific functionality. For example, the IDeliveryExtension interface defines the Deliver method. In turn, the e-mail delivery provider that ships with Reporting Services implements the Deliver method in order to send reports notifications via e-mail.
