Data Source Properties

Data Source Properties

You must specify a reporting source for the Reporting Service. The Reporting Service creates the following objects in Data Analyzer for the reporting source:
  • A data source with the name
    Datasource
  • A data connector with the name
    Dataconnector
Use the Administrator tool to manage the data source and data connector for the reporting source. To view or edit the
Datasource
or
Dataconnector
in the advanced mode, click the data source or data connector link in the Administrator tool.
You can create multiple data sources in Data Analyzer. You manage the data sources you create in Data Analyzer within Data Analyzer. Changes you make to data sources created in Data Analyzer will not be lost when you restart the Reporting Service.
The following table describes the data source properties that you can edit:
