Backup SSRS Reports

If you need to backup your SSRS reports you can download each report individually, or use PowerShell to backup all of them quickly.

The information in this post was taken from the following articles:

The website that the Recast article referrers to is no longer available and is only accessible via the web archive link given in the article. This post is so the script is easily available for later use.

The script has been updated and is available on GitHub.

The script requires two parameters, the SSRS FQDN, and the directory save the reports to. If the directory doesn’t exist, the script will create it.

The script assumes that HTTPS has been enabled on the SSRS site. If HTTPS has not been enabled, the script will need to be modified to switch back to HTTPS.

A progress bar is used to show progress.

Report backup in progress.
Reports have been backed up to the location passed to the script.
