Import tool: Microsoft SQL Server Analysis and Reporting Services (SSAS, SSRS) 9.0 (2005) to 14.x (2017) (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175609.aspx)
Import interface: [Business Intelligence] Multi-Model, Metadata Repository, Data Store (Physical Data Model, OLAP Dimensional Model, Stored Procedure Expression Parsing), BI Design (RDBMS Source, OLAP Source, Dimensional Target, Transformation Lineage, Expression Parsing), BI Report (Relational Source, Dimensional Source, Expression Parsing, Report Structure) via .Net API from Microsoft SQL Server Analysis (SSAS) and Reporting Services (SSRS) (Repository) Import bridge: 'MicrosoftSqlServerRepositoryAsRs' 10.1.0

The bridge imports Reports and Analysis (OLAP Models) Databases from a corresponding SQL Server Repository using the SQL Server SDK APIs, including the Reporting Services Web Service and Analysis Management Objects (AMO).

In order for this bridge to connect to the SQL Server Repositories and import, it is necessary to ensure that the SQL Server is installed properly and corresponding services are running. As well you need to have installed IIS 5.0 or later. Make sure that you are able to connect to the Reporting Service through Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 or later. The bridge uses Windows Authentication to connect to Report and Analysis Services. Please be sure the application is logged into Windows Domain as a User which has appropriate rights to the objects you wish to import.

Once all of the metadata is imported, the Analysis Database Models will be stitched (mapped for lineage reporting) to the associated Reports.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q1. How should I select which metadata is imported?
A1. In the Data Sources bridge parameter you should choose a set of DataSources.

Q2. How do I prevent the Analysis Databases from importing?
A2. Leave the Analysis Server bridge parameter empty.

Q3. How do I import the entire Report Service Repository content?
A3. Enter a '/' into Data Source(s) bridge parameter.

SUPPORT:
When experiencing issues with the bridge, you should report the issues in a manner that is reproducible by the support engineers. In order to provide a complete set of source metadata to reproduce the issue, please export and attach the Report (RDL) and Analysis Databases (XMLA) files. As always, attach the MIMB Log file, as well.
