For an existing ssrs 2008 report that is running that will be executing on a ssrs 2012 report server, I believe the call from a .net application that will call the report server will look something like the following:
Since this is my first time obtaining parameter values from a call from an application, I have the following questions:
- Does the name of the parameter need to be exactly like what is passed in the url. For example listed above, there 'schoolyear=2017'. Does the SSRS report name need to be exactly 'schoolnum' or can the name be something else?
- How does the ssrs report know that parameter field applies to the values listed above? For example, how does the ssrs report know where 'schoolnum=341' should be applied in the report? Does having the parameter marked as hidden make a difference?
Does the order of parameters listed make a difference?
- There are the first two parameters called admin and userid that are not listed in the url? These 2 parameters have default values. Do I need to pass those 2 parameters in the url? Can you tell me why or why I would not need to pass those parameter values in the url (link)?
