Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).
Sets the report server database connection to a particular report server database.
Public Sub SetDatabaseConnection(Server as String, _ DatabaseName as string, CredentialsType as Integer, _ Username as String, Password as String, ByRef HRESULT as Int32)
When the CredentialsType parameter is set to 0 (Windows), the UserName and Password parameters must be set. The UserName parameter must be in the form "domain\username", and the value must represent a valid Windows logon.
When the CredentialsType parameter is set to 1 (SQL Server), the value passed in the UserName parameter must conform to the requirements of a SQL Server login name.
When the CredentialsType parameter is set to 2 (Windows Service), the report server uses integrated security to connect to the report server database and the UserName and Password parameters are ignored. The Reporting Server Web service will use either the ASP.NET account or an application pool’s account and the Windows service account to access the report server database.
When called, the SetDatabaseConnection method encrypts and stores the credentials and database information in the configuration file for the specified report server.
The SetDatabaseConnection method does not check that the report server can connect to the report server database using the data specified.
When set for the first time, the ConnectionPoolSize property is set based on the following processors: ConnectionPoolSize = #Processors * 75.
The SetDatabaseConnection method does not grant permissions to the specified account(s). You must call the GenerateDatabaseRightsScript method for each account that requires access to the report server database and run the resulting script.
