Working with reports

Active Roles Reporting > Working with reports

You use the Active Roles Collector to prepare data for reporting. The data is stored in the database you specify when configuring the data collection job (see Collector to prepare data for reports earlier in this chapter). In order to make the data available to the report server, the data source on the report server must be configured to connect to the database that holds the report data. Then, you can generate and view Active Roles reports.

Configuring the data source

Active Roles Reporting > Working with reports > Configuring the data source

You have the option to configure the data source when deploying Active Roles reports to the report server (see Deploying reports to the Report Server earlier in this document). If you have not configured the data source, or need to change the data source, then you can do this by using Report Manager on the report server on which the Active Roles reports were deployed.

To configure the data source by using SSRS Report Manager

  1. Start SSRS Report Manager from your Web browser.

    Report Manager is installed during setup of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) on the same computer as the report server. To start Report Manager, open Internet Explorer, and then, in the address bar of the Web browser, type the Report Manager URL. By default, the URL is http://<ComputerName>/reports.

  1. Perform the following steps on the Contents page that appears:
    1. Click Active Roles.
    2. Click SharedDataSources.
    3. Click the data source named Active Roles Active Roles7.1.0 Report Data.

    If the SharedDataSources item is not displayed, click Details View.

  1. In the Connection string box on the Properties page that appears, specify the SQL Server instance and the name of the database that holds the report data prepared by the Active Roles Collector.

    For example, if the name of the database is ARServerReporting and the database is on the SQL Server instance named MyServer\Enterprise, then the connection string is as follows:

    data source = MyServer\Enterprise; initial catalog = ARServerReporting

  1. Click Apply.

Generating and viewing a report

Active Roles Reporting > Working with reports > Generating and viewing a report

You can generate and preview Active Roles reports using SSRS Report Manager. This section provides basic instructions on how to use Report Manager for this purpose.

The following instructions assume that report data has been prepared by using the Active Roles Collector and the data source on the report server has been configured to connect to the database that holds the report data.

To view a report by using SSRS Report Manager

  1. Start SSRS Report Manager from your Web browser.

To start Report Manager, open Internet Explorer, and then, in the address bar of the Web browser, type the Report Manager URL. By default, the URL is http://<ComputerName>/reports.

  1. Click Active Roles on the Contents page that appears.
  2. Find a report by browsing folders or searching for a report by name.

Browse folder contents by clicking a folder name or folder icon on the Contents page. Search for a report by typing all or part of the report name in the Search text box at the top of that page.

  1. To view a report, click the name of the report.

Some reports require you to provide parameter values. You can also apply filters to specify what data you want the report to include.

  1. Click the View Report button at the top of the page.

For detailed instructions on how to use Report Manager, refer to Microsoft SQL Server Books Online.
