Retrieve SSRS report schedule info through SQL

 --Retrieve SSRS report schedule info through SQL

Grabs information about what reports in SSRS are scheduled, when are they due to be sent out, 

report parameters and any errors in the last run etc.

Please note that the XPath on the [Parameters] column varies based on what parameters are setup in your own report. 

Please adjust them for your own purpose. Also the 'Prompt' value for a parameter is not stored, so you might have to 

join back to the relevant table for a friendly name.

Also there is additional info in the [ExtensionSetting].

TempDB-Move TempDB Script in SQL Server

Hi All,

Notification --Email SP Results in SQL Server

 --Notification --Email SP Results

--https://www.sqlservercentral.com/scripts/email-sp-results

This piece of code will allow you to add a stored procedure name as a parameter, and will then take the output results of the procedure and email it to an address of your choosing, automatically formatting the results into an HTML table embedded in the email for clear and easy reading, or alternatively as an attachment.


Regretfully, there are a few limitations which I will eventually get around to fixing when I am interested in this again, namely:


Uses a static 100 length on the output columns instead of dynamically applying a length by referencing the source data

Cannot use procedures that have a blank column aliased ie.SELECT  ' ' as Store FROM table.

Requires Ad Hoc Distributed Queries server setting to be enabled.

Change cursors into tally or alternate loop

Customization of colours, table length, font etc.

It is executed as follows:


EXEC DBAdmin.[dbo].[dba_EmailProcResults] @vcProcName='sp_lock'


,@vcDatabaseName='master'


, @vcRecipients='<UrEmailHere>'


, @vcDynamicSubject = 'Log Backup Check'

=============================================================

 USE [tempdb]

GO

CREATE PROC [dbo].[dba_EmailProcResults]  --'dba_CheckLogbackups','DBAdmin', 'nicholaswilliams@', @vcDynamicSubject = 'Log Backup Check'

@vcProcName VARCHAR(1000)

,@vcDatabaseName VARCHAR(100)

,@vcRecipients VARCHAR(1000)

,@vcSchemaName VARCHAR(100) = NULL

Desc: Uses a proc as in input and email's the results.


Note: still plenty to update...

Procs cant reference non existant objects, even if logic would prevent them from being used ie. conditional if clause refering to non-existent table, as the remote call seems to force a parse on the query.

yet to make the table columns "smart" in terms of data lengths.

Requires Distributed Queries :/

add in a '?' reference help parameter

Cannot handle '' or blank string columns aliased as an actual column... need to fix.
