Execute SSRS Subscription on Demand

There could be many ways to fire SSRS subscription but here i will explain how to fire SSRS subscription on demand using RS.EXE utility.

First step is to create your report Subscription through Report Manager using option "New Subscription" or "New Data-driven Subscription" by navigating <Your Report> => Properties => Subscription . Inside your create Subscription, there will be "Select Schedule" button. Click on this button and choose "Once" as option and give any past time under "Start Time" and complete required details for your subscription and click "Ok" button to create your report subscription.

Second step is to create a .RSS file that will be used to trigger newly created subscription in first step. Open Notepad and put below script and save this Notepad file as "..\<Your Folder Path>\Subscription.rss". You can choose any file name with extension .rss

you can put multiple rs.FireEvent statement inside Sub Main block to fire multiple report's subscriptions at the same time.

Sub Main() 
rs.FireEvent("TimedSubscription", "<SubscriptionID>") 
End Sub

Now, we need to get SubscriptionID of newly created subscription in our first step to use it above block (highlighted as yellow). For that, you need to login to Sql Server Management Studio and execute below query on your ReportServer Database.

select s.SubscriptionID, subscriptionname,c.Name as reportname from Subscriptions s
inner join ReportSchedule RS on RS.SubscriptionID=s.SubscriptionID
inner join Catalog c on c.ItemID=RS.ReportID
inner join Schedule SD on SD.ScheduleID=RS.ScheduleID
where c.Name='<Your Report Name>'

<Your Report Name> will be name your report for that you have created subscription in first step.

Third step to execute .rss file that we created in second step. Again open a new notepad and put below code and save your file as "..\<Your Folder Path>\RunSubscription.bat"

<Full Path of RS.EXE file>\rs.exe -i "..\<Your Folder Path>\Subscription.rss" -s http://<Your Report Server instance name>/reportserver

We are done. you can run your RunSubscription.bat by double click on .bat file.

SharePoint Items Security using SharePoint Powershell

We can use following SharePoint PowerShell script to pull all SharePoint items security whether an item is using unique permission or inherited permission. The output will be written in a .csv file “SharepointSitesOutput.csv”

Just copy and paste following code in .ps1 file and execute that file on SharePoint PowerShell commad using commad &<filename.ps1>

get-spsite -Limit All|get-spweb -Limit All|Select URL,Title, hasUniquePerm |Export-csv SharepointSitesOutput.csv –NoTypeInformation

List SSRS items Permissions using PoweShell

If we pull SSRS Items security using ReportServer database using following query then we get stale information. It includes those users as well that has been deleted/deactivated in Active directory.

select C.UserName, D.RoleName, D.Description, E.Path, E.Name
from dbo.PolicyUserRole A
   inner join dbo.Policies B on A.PolicyID = B.PolicyID
   inner join dbo.Users C on A.UserID = C.UserID
   inner join dbo.Roles D on A.RoleID = D.RoleID
   inner join dbo.Catalog E on A.PolicyID = E.PolicyID
order by C.UserName

So instead of using query at ReportServer Database, we can use reportservice2005.asmx GetPolicies method. Following is the Powershell Script that writes the SSRS Folders permissions in SSRSSecurityOutput.csv. Just copy and paste the following code in a .ps1 file like SSRSPermissions.ps1.
.Ps1 is file extension for poweshell script.

$ReportServerUri = 'http://<ReportServer>/ReportServer/ReportService2005.asmx'
$InheritParent = $true
$SourceFolderPath = '/'

$Proxy = New-WebServiceProxy -Uri $ReportServerUri -Namespace SSRS.ReportingService2005 -UseDefaultCredential
$items = $Proxy.ListChildren($sourceFolderPath, $true)|Select-Object Type, Path, Name|Where-Object {$_.type -eq "Folder"};
foreach($item in $items)
Add-Member -InputObject $item -MemberType NoteProperty -Name UserName -Value '';
foreach($policy in $Proxy.GetPolicies($item.path, [ref]$InheritParent))
                $outSSRSSecurity += $objtemp;
$outSSRSSecurity|Export-csv SSRSSecurityOutput.csv -NoTypeInformation;

Create SSRS Report using SSAS as a Data source

I am assuming that you are familiar with creating SSRS report using T-SQL as Data source. In order to create a report using SSAS as a data source you have to perform the following steps.
     1.  Create a Data source using SSAS  
     2.  Just follow the same steps as you use to create the TSQL DataSource , But while selecting source select  “Microsoft SQL Analysis Services “ See image below .Rest of the steps are same as you use to perform in T-SQL report DataSource

Now just go to the report and create a Dataset same you use to create in T-SQL report

In function window paste your query like below image

SELECT                {
                                            [Measures].[Internet Order Quantity],
                                            [Measures].[Internet Tax Amount]
                                } on COLUMNS ,
NON EMPTY ([Product].[Product].[Product] ) on 1 from
[Adventure Works]

Now Click on “Field” TAB check your filed data source see below image

At the above stage, you need to manually change the Field Names and give appropriate names. So that it would be easy for us to use these names at report coding. Refer following details.
 Copy Field source XMLA and paste it somewhere like below
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Field xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" xsi:type="Level" UniqueName="[Product].[Product].[Product]" />
See unique name according to your unique name provide the name of your field see image above
Note: If type =”level” it means this your dimension/level field and if it is type =”Measure" then it is Measure
After performing all the steps your dataset is ready with fields 

Now you can Preview report.
