I am working on a process for promoting reports into our production environment. As a part of the report development process, we currently deploy our reports to an Active Reports Server in a QA environment for testing. I need a way to easily promote the report to our production Report Server after testing is complete.
I was considering leveraging the Report Server API to pull reports from the QA server and push them to the Production server. All of our reports are codeless RDL reports. The RDL reports have master pages, sub reports and shared datasources.
I see in the API documentation that there are two endpoints for saving a report. The first is /api/reports/codeBasedReportsContent. I’m assuming this is used for Section Reports?
The second endpoint is /api/reports/content. The description for this endpoint states that it is a way to “upload reports with content”. I’m unclear on what a “report with content” is. Will this endpoint allow us to upload our RDL reports?
