Really nice video, but be adviced that the default SMP Reports (7.1 SP2) are not working as stated in the video.

So only user created reports will work as expected.

I opened a case about that a couple of months ago.

What issue were you having with the default reports? Is it certain variables behaving badly?

Hopefully, in 7.5, you have a little more flexibility because you can exclude certain parameters from being shipped off to the ReportManagment web service (using the Include * in Parameters properties)

It seems the schema that is given to the Generator doesn't correspond to the parameters awaited by the SMP.

Check Case 418-883-395.

Basically the RunReportsWithParameters method in ReportManagement on the SMP has 2 parameters: a report GUID, and a delimited key value pair set that gives the parameters and the values to run the report with. It'll look like this: <parameter a>=<value a>;<parameter b>=<value b>;etc.

I know there was an issue recently fixed that dealt with the parameter names being shipped off. We weren't preserving the original name of the parameter (if it had spaces) and tried to "cobble" it back together before the service call; that's been fixed for 7.5.
