How to: Publish Reports
In Report Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio, you can publish all the reports and shared data sources to a report server, or you can publish a single report. For more information, see Publishing Data Sources and Reports.
To publish all reports in a project
On the standard toolbar, from the Solution Configurations drop-down list, select a configuration, and then click Start. Alternatively, on the Debug menu, click Start.
To publish a single report
On the standard toolbar, from the Solution Configurations drop-down list, select a configuration.
In Solution Explorer, right-click the report and then click Run.
Before publishing reports, the selected configuration must be set to use a specific report server. For more information about setting a target report server, see Project Property Pages Dialog Box.
By default, the DebugLocal configuration displays a report in the local preview window, and the Debug and Production configurations publish the report to a report server.
You can view the status of the publishing process in the Output window. When Report Designer is finished publishing reports, it opens the report or report folder in a browser window. Any errors from publishing appear in the Task List window in Report Designer. For more information, see Working with Report Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio.
If the reports do not publish to the report server, and a preview window displays instead of the browser window, make sure that both Build and Deploy are selected for the configuration in the configuration manager. You can access the configuration manager on the same dialog box that you use to change the target report server. For more information about setting configuration manager properties, see How to: Set Deployment Properties (Reporting Services).
Errors appear in the Task List window only if the Build property for the configuration is selected.
