Download All SSRS Reports using PowerShell


There is a nice easy way to download all SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) reports in one go. It can be achieved by using PowerShell and the SOAP API that exists for SSRS.

  1. Create a new file in Notepad.
  2. Add the script further down to new Notepad file.
  3. Update SSRS URI and Report Download Location.
  4. Save the file as GetAllReports.ps1
  5. Find file using Windows Explorer
  6. Right-click and click ‘Run With PowerShell’

Please Note: Where D:\Temp\DownloadedReportsLocation is, you will need to update this to a valid path on your machine or server.


# Original Script Credit
#Install-Module -Name ReportingServicesTools

#Declare SSRS URI
$sourceRsUri = 'http://localhost/YourReportServer/ReportService2010.asmx?wsdl'

#Declare Proxy so we do not need to connect with every command
$proxy = New-RsWebServiceProxy -ReportServerUri $sourceRsUri

#Output ALL Catalog items to file system
Out-RsFolderContent -Proxy $proxy -RsFolder / -Destination 'D:\Temp\DownloadedReportsLocation' -Recurse

New-WebServiceProxy Error

If an error occurs along the lines of ‘New-WebServiceProxy’ is not recognized, then the tools will need to be installed using this command in PowerShell:-

Install-Module -Name ReportingServicesTools

You should then press ‘Y’ to all of the installation instructions.
