I have a bunch of shared datasets on my old report server and I want to copy them to a SharePoint Document Library. I'm running SSRS integrated mode in SharePoint 2013 and I've already created my document library and added these three Content Types Report Builder Model, Report Builder Report and Report Data Source.

I've created and deployed some reports using my Report Builder and all work perfectly.

Now, I would like to know if there is a way to view/edit a SSRS Dataset on SharePoint (*.rsd file extension). As I can see, SharePoint support data source files (.rsds) and report files (.rdl, .rdlx), it also has the Report Builder Model type. I'm not sure about that type yet, but I tried to create a new one and I saw that it is not a dataset file.

Currently, if I upload a dataset file on my document library, SharePoint does not recognize my file. Once I uploaded it, I had to choose a type for the file, but I didn't have any type that matches with a SSRS dataset.

Looking the Content Types available to choose, I chose for Report Builder Model, just to try, because the other ones were not reasonable. Then, I realized that I could change the datasource using the option Manage Data Sources, but just that, I could not change the name or the SQL query of the dataset.

Maybe SharePoint does not provide viewer or editors for shared datasets so I would like to know if I have to develop some code out of the box or I don't have to do it because SharePoint support that file type.

  • Thanks for your answer @urlreader. Previously, I've been searching a lot as you said but I could not find anything related to datasets. Probably, my question was not clear enough. I've just updated my question to clarify.
