Microsoft has published a new version of the OpsMgr R2 Report Authoring Guide. “Custom reports are intended for advanced users who’re comfortable creating their own reports by using SQL Server Reporting Services and SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio, SQL Server Reporting Services Report Builder, or Visual Studio Report Designer.”
There’re two other types of reports that are based on prebuilt queries:
- Generic reports meet most customers’ needs.
- Linked reports use generic reports where the report parameters are specified in advance.
