Since I’m doing a massive code review resulting in a lot of query tuning recently, I needed to review all the reports on one of SSRS instances. I didn’t want to go through reports one by one, but dump all the queries and then work with them. Here’s the query I used:
WITH XMLNAMESPACES (DEFAULT 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2008/01/reportdefinition', 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/SQLServer/reporting/reportdesigner' AS rd) SELECT a.Name, CAST(a2.q.query('./text()') AS varchar(MAX)) Query FROM ( SELECT Name, CAST(CAST(Content AS VARBINARY(MAX)) AS XML) AS ReportXML FROM ReportServer.dbo.Catalog where Type = 2) a CROSS APPLY ReportXML.nodes('/Report/DataSets/DataSet') a1(q) CROSS APPLY a1.q.nodes('./Query/CommandText') a2(q)
It returns a list of reports with all queries used by them – just run it in your SSRS ReportServer database. Works for 2008 – 2012, can’t check it with 2005 but since the XSD of report definition does not change much from 2005 to 2008 it should work as well.
