The following can now be uploaded as hidden:
- DataSource
- Kpi
- all others except large power bi report files
  (>=MinLargeFileSizeInMb)

Clarify documentation of
- `Description`
- `Overwrite`
to be ignored by large Power BI Report files.
Add documentation for new `Hidden` parameter.
Add example for new `Hidden` parameter.
Fix some formatting issues.
Add information about ignored parameters to verbose write.
Remove ignored fields from large file upload. See
https://app.swaggerhub.com/apis-docs/microsoft-rs/pbirs/2.0#/PowerBIReports/UploadPowerBIReport
Make Try upload block smaller. The follow-up catch block was still relying on parts of the now moved out code block.
Overwrite upload code now uses same requestBody as normal upload.
Kpi `Hidden` property is only changed if parameter `Hidden` is used.

Reporting Services PowerShell

SQL Server Reporting Services PowerShell utilities

Synopsis

This project contains PowerShell scripts that allow you to perform various operations with SQL Server Reporting Services and Power BI Report Server. In order to use the scripts included in this project successfully, please download/clone the entire project as there are dependencies between the scripts.

All of our scripts were written with the assumption that you will be executing them against SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services default instance (i.e. mssqlserver). However, we understand this may not be the case for you. So for each script, you will see that we have provided a way for you to specify the name and/or version of your SQL Server Reporting Services or Power BI Report Server instance name. Sometimes the version of your SQL Server instance is also required. If you do not provide one, we will assume that you want to execute this against the default instance.

PowerShell Version

Please ensure you're running PowerShell version 3.0+

Some of the commands listed above allow you to optionally specify the version of your SQL Server Reporting Services instance. The following is a list of versions associated with each SQL Server Reporting Services release.

SQL Server Release Version

Motivation

The motivation behind this project was to help users perform SQL Server Reporting Services operations via the command line.

API Reference

All of the APIs used by this project are publicly available. There are 2 types of APIs used in this repository: SOAP and WMI. You can find more details about the SOAP API at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms154052.aspx and the WMI API at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms152836.aspx. In general, you will use SOAP API for operations you would perform using Report Server and Web Portal whereas you will use WMI API for operations you would perform using Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

Local testing and development

To verify the versions installed

Get-Module -ListAvailable -Name ReportingServicesTools

After you clone the repo you can make local changes and install them in your local machine with

Remove-Module ReportingServicesTools
Import-Module .\ReportingServicesTools.psd1

For debugging you can set the verbose logging with $VerbosePreference = "continue"

Test

For running tests locally you need a local default instance of SQL Server Reporting Services and Pester

To install Pester execute

Install-Module -Name Pester -RequiredVersion 4.10.1

To execute the tests run (this will execute the CatalogItems test only which doesn't change the local Reporting Services Installation)

.\Test.ps1

Import Known Issue

Workaround for newer versions of PowerShell (version 7.0+)

Import-Module ReportingServicesTools -UseWindowsPowerShell
