Want to programmatically access your Sql Server Reporting Services Server? (SSRS) Turns out there’s an app for that! Or more precisely, a SOAP web service.

The Reporting Services SOAP API provides several Web service endpoints for developing custom reporting solutions. The endpoints currently fall into two categories: management and execution. The management functionality is exposed through the ReportService2005 and ReportService2006 endpoints. The ReportService2005 endpoint is used for managing a report server that is configured in native mode and the ReportService2006 endpoint is used for managing a report server that is configured for SharePoint integrated mode. The execution functionality is exposed through the ReportExecution2005 endpoint and it is used when the report server is configured in native or SharePoint integrated mode. The following topics show how these endpoints can be used for developing reporting solutions in Microsoft Windows, SharePoint, and Web applications.
