Native Mode Required Permissions

Depends on the item type:

SharePoint Mode Required Permissions


The length of the ItemPath parameter cannot exceed 260 characters; otherwise, a SOAP exception is thrown with the error code rsItemLengthExceeded.

The ItemPath parameter cannot be null or empty or contain the following reserved characters: : ? ; @ & = + $ , \ * > < | . ". You can use the forward slash character (/) to separate items in the full path name of the folder, but you cannot use it at the end of the folder name.

If ItemType is Report, then the XML data is defined by the Report Definition Language. If ItemType is Model, then the XML data is defined by the Semantic Model Definition Language.

Changing the definition or content for an item modifies the ModifiedBy, ModifiedDate, and Size properties of the item. The Description property is not affected. Execution settings and existing snapshots remain unchanged for the item.
