SSRS reports with multiple database
I am creating an SSRS report which will fetch data from two different databases. The problem is that, the database names will be different in development and live servers.
My question is - 1) What should I do at Stored Proc level so that I don't need to change anything there if the database name gets changed? 2) What should I do at report level (or on dataset) so that I don't need to change anything for the different database names?
I am having SSRS deployed on SQL Server 2008 R2.
You don't need to do anything with your Stored Procedure. Just make sure it is on the correct Databse. You can handle various Database Names with a Parameter on your Report:
- Create a DBName Parameter in your Report
- Set your Data Source Connection String to:
="Data Source=YourServerName;Initial Catalog=" & Parameters!DBName.Value
Building SSRS Reports With Multiple Data Sources, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) allow users to create reports using data from a variety of sources, including relational databases, Building SSRS Reports With Multiple Data Sources. SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) allow users to create reports using data from a variety of sources, including relational databases, multidimensional databases, web services, XML, and other document types. Using SSRS, we can present data from multiple data sources in a single report.
You are forced to do dynamic sql.
Do you have a way to retrieve the name of the database and to know how it changes?
You could imagine to pass the name as a parameter. And to prevent sql injection to easyli, you can check the variable is existing in sys.databases and in another dataset, if the first is true, you can pass the value to your stored proc and execute it.
For your stored procedure, create a variable nvarchar(max), add all your code in that variable, double the quote and extract the database name to let it like this.
declare @sql = 'select * from [' + @mydb + '].dbo.mytable'
SSRS Report with multiple databases – SQLServerCentral, I am still a newbie with SSRS, but I have 6 databases all with the same schema. Right now I know how to build individual reports for each site We would like to have a single SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) report that will display SQL Servers versions for all of our SQL Servers that are registered in Central Management Server. Solution. Sometimes it is not easy to have results from different data sources in one data set.
Typically when I am creating a report I create shared data sources that point at different databases. You can think of them as basically a connection string. The nice thing about SSRS is that you can have one data source that you upload to the server and can use in different reports. Then if you need to change the location of the database you just need to do it once for the shared data source on the SSRS server and all of the reports will point to the new location. In addition this can separate out the server from the report. So in your instance you would upload the same report to multiple servers and connect the report to different servers depending on the data source you have on that server.
- First create a Data Source in your project
- Add that Data Source to your report (add Data Source, Use shared data source reference)
- When you deploy the report to a server you need to deploy the Shared Data Source and the report
- After you deploy the report bring up the context menu for that report, and click manage data sources. Now set this one to your shared data source. Each server could be using a different shared Data source. (I only have access to Sharepoint Integrated servers right now so the options might be a bit different on native mode SSRS).
Add Multiple databases in the connection string in Report Builder 3.0, Hello I have multiple databases in SQL server. I want to include all these 2019, 2:36pm #3. Do you currently have an SSRS report SERVER? In the SQL Server Reporting Service (SSRS) report development process; we can use a beneficial feature which is called the “shared dataset”. The purpose of SSRS embedded datasets are to retrieve data from target data sources for only one report but a shared dataset can be used by multiple reports to retrieve data.
Multiple Datasets in same report, and its possible.
Step 1 Create as many as Datasources you want with different server/database/table name for ex: DataSource1 = server1/Database1/table1 DataSource2 = server2/Database2/table2
Step 2 Create as many as Datasets with
Step 3 Within the same Report window -> right click and choose Insert - Table
Place the table where ever you want Go to properties of table - Set DataSetName to Datasource what you need to. DatasetName = Datasource2
Make sure Dataset works and has fields shown on left side under Report Data
Save and Run the report.
Creating a multi-server query SSRS report using Central , We would like to have a single SQL Server Reporting Services add them manually because we are using a dynamic database connection):. The “Shared Data Source” properties dialog box is brought into view (see above). We click “Edit” to create our “Connection string”. The “Connection Properties” dialogue box is brought up (see above). We simply enter the name of the SQL Server and the name of the database where the data resides (see above).

After you create the dataset, use the Report Data pane to view the field collection. You can display data from a dataset in a data region like a table or chart. In each data region, you can group, filter, and sort the data to organize it. After you design the report layout, you run the report to see the actual data.
Linking Multiple Data Regions to the Same Dataset (Report Builder , Do you find it hard to meet timeframes when creating SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) reports for multiple client databases? It's mainly Configuring Multiple Reports Servers to Use the Same Report Server Database. You can configure multiple report servers to use the same report server database. This deployment configuration is called a scale-out deployment. This configuration is a prerequisite if you want to run multiple report servers in a server cluster.
SSRS: Report Generation for Multiple Client Databases Made Simple!, Hi, This question has been asked many times but as I read through the posts and query the internet I see there have been many updates over Allowing users to select multiple values from a parameter list is a great feature in SSRS; it allows report consumers more selection flexibility when running reports.
