PySSRS

Microsoft Reporting Services (SSRS) RPC trough SOAP with update to fix ntlm issue on python 3.6+

Installation

  1. Make sure you have Python 3+ installed
  2. Run pip install https://github.com/genusistimelord/PySSRS/zipball/master

Connecting to SSRS

You can use it as a facilitator to make SOAP RPCs. For example:

From SSRS import SSRS

Service   = 'http://localhost/ReportinServices/ReportService2010.asmx?wsdl'
Execution = 'http://myserver/reportserver/ReportExecution2005.asmx?wsdl'
user      = 'user@contoso.com'
password  = '@password2017'
domain    = 'mydomain' Use this only if you are needing NTLM otherwise for regular http auth dont use.

RS = SSRS(Service, Execution, user, password, domain)
result = RS.ServiceClient.service.ListChildren(dir, recursive)

for item in result.CatalogItem:
  print(item['Name'])

Available Functions

We implemented some functions to make it easy to use. Feel free to check their usage on the samples folder.

These functions are available by now:

Function Objective Return Type
ListServiceMethods() List all SOAP procedures for ServiceClient List []
ListExecutionMethods() List all SOAP procedures for ExecutionClient List []
DirItems() List all objects in a directory Dictionary {}
Find() Find for a item by it's name Dictionary {}
GetParameters() Return all parameters from a Report object Dictionary {}
RequestReport() Execute a report from SSRS Report Object - Used to suply RenderReport()
RenderReport() Render a Requested Report Dictionary {}
ListExtensions() Retrieve Usable Render Extensions Dictionary {}
FlushCache() Flushes the reports Data No Return
FlushMultiCache() Flushes list of reports Data No Return

Rendering Reports

Now we can load and render report with this module. Please, check samples/LoadReport.py to see how it works!

Example of Service Function

Check this small code, it's an sample of usage

# Conneting to SSRS SOAP server

ServiceWSDL    = 'http://localhost/ReportinServices/ReportService2010.asmx?wsdl'
ExecutionWSDL  = 'http://myserver/reportserver/ReportExecution2005.asmx?wsdl'
user = 'user@domain.com
psw  = '@password2017'
domain = 'domain' Use this if you are needing NTLM otherwise regular http auth dont use.

RS = SSRS(ServiceWSDL, ExecutionWSDL, user, psw, domain)

'''
Return a LIST with all available SOAP procedures
so you can iterate over them...
'''
Methods = RS.ListMethods()

'''
Return a DICTIONARY with all items in a specific folder##
you can also use the <recursive> parameter to scan subfolders.
If you don't specify the <dir> parameter it'll take the root ('/') as default
'''
DirItems = RS.ListDirItems(dir='/MyReports', recursive=True)

'''
Find() will retrieve a list of items which the name matches with the <text> parameter.
It's recursive, you don't need to specify any folder and you can also specify the object type that you want
by using the <objtype> parameter.

Those are the accepted types of objects
            -> Component 
            -> DataSource 
            -> Folder
            -> Model
            -> LinkedReport
            -> Report
            -> Resource
            -> DataSet
            -> Site
            -> Unknown
'''
ItemsFound = RS.Find(text="Sales", objtype="Report")

#GetParameters() will retrieve a list of paremeters for the report on the specific path
Parameters = RS.GetParameters(path='/MyReports/SalesOrder')
You can’t perform that action at this time.
