SSRS Deployments

This section allows you to configure SSRS deployments which will be executed during installation. You might use it if the installation needs to upload reports, datasets or data sources to an instance of Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services.

New SSRS DeploymentTo create a new deployment use the [ New SSRS Deployment ] toolbar button or the “New deployment” context menu item.

To impersonate the current user, use the “Impersonate installing user” context menu option. You can check this option if you want to run the deployment as the user installing the application, not under the Local System account.

Resources

Here you can add and edit the files needed for the deployment (report, dataset and datasource files).

Adding a new resource

Select your resources using the [ Add... ] button.

Editing an SSRS deployment

Use the [ Edit... ] button, the “Edit...” context menu item or press the Space key while an element from the list is selected. The Edit SSRS resources dialog dialog will be displayed allowing you to edit the properties of the resource's deployment.

Removing an SSRS deployment

To remove an existing resource use the [ Remove ] button.

NoteYou can target the deployment to a server that is running on a different machine than the one where the installer is running, only if the machines are connected to the same domain.

ImportantFor performing the deployment, Advanced Installer uses a tool which is part of the Reporting Services component of the SQL Server. Therefore you must have an instance of the SQL Server installed on the machine where you are running the install package.
