SQL Server Reporting Services 2017

Previous topic - Next topic


Microsoft separated SQL Server and its Reporting Services component, but now there's no automatic update or WSUS product to update it with.  It's freely available to get the installer (though you need a product key for new installs - there is an evaluation period though -, no product key is required for updates) from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55252
Could this be added to the catalog?

Thanks for reporting. Let us look into this. For Server Management products sometimes we are more particular since sometimes enterprises may need to run on specific versions and this may be easy to overlook in an ADR.

Totally understandable.  If it helps, I would note that Microsoft specifically separated the components largely to help ease updating of the SSRS component more regularly and in a way that doesn't interrupt SQL Server itself.  For reference, here's the release article: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/sqlrsteamblog/2017/10/02/sql-server-2017-reporting-services-now-generally-available/

Sorry to bother you guys, was just checking in to see if there was any information on this?

Justin Chalfant (Patch My PC)

Thanks for the follow-up. We haven't started to look into this one yet. We have a few client based app we are working on, but we haven't forgot to look into this one yet.

Would either of you have an installer older than version 14.0.600.892 you could share for our testing purposes?


Sorry, I didn't see this, no email on the reply.  I don't have any older version to provide, sorry, only the most recent version that came out in February.

Sorry to do this to you, but we are moving all our application request from our support forum to a new platform (https://ideas.patchmypc.com/).

We need to make this change due to the amount of customer growth and new application request. It's no longer manageable on the support forum platform. We need to have a voting system to help understand what new application request would benefit the most significant number of customers, and that will be one factor we use to prioritize the application request.

If this request is still a product you need, could you please re-submit the application request at https://ideas.patchmypc.com/.

  • Please only include one product per-each new idea submission as this will help with the up-voting per product.
  • If you could also include the information mentioned at https://patchmypc.com/forum/index.php?topic=2790.0 in the idea request that would be great and help expedite the process if the product is accepted.
