The SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) SDK for PHP is a library that uses the SQL Server Reporting Services SOAP APIs to enable PHP developers to leverage the SSRS Business Intelligence/Reporting features in their application.

The library is designed to make simple for developers to call the SSRS remote APIs to perform the following operations:
  • Query for the list of reports available on the server
  • Query for the list of parameters required for each report with the list of valid values
  • Query the list of Formats supported by the Server
  • Execute a Report

Additional links and information can be found on the Interoperability Bridges website:


Code Sample

// include the SSRS library
require_once 'SSRSReport.php';

define("REPORT", "/AdventureWorks 2008 Sample Reports/TopStoresBegin");
$settings = parse_ini_file("app.config", 1);
// Create a connection to the SSRS Server
$rs = new SSRSReport(new Credentials($settings["UID"], $settings["PASWD"]),$settings["SERVICE_URL"]);

// Load the report and specify the params required for its execution
$executionInfo = $rs->LoadReport2(REPORT, NULL);
$parameters = array();
$parameters[0] = new ParameterValue();
$parameters[0]->Name = "ProductCategory";
$parameters[0]->Value = "1";
$parameters[1] = new ParameterValue();
$parameters[1]->Name = "StartDate";
$parameters[1]->Value = "1/1/2003";
$parameters[2] = new ParameterValue();
$parameters[2]->Name = "EndDate";
$parameters[2]->Value = "12/31/2003";
$parameters[3] = new ParameterValue();
$parameters[3]->Name = "ProductSubcategory";
$parameters[3]->Value = "2";

// Require the Report to be rendered in HTML format
$renderAsHTML = new RenderAsHTML();

// Set the links in the reports to point to the php app

$renderAsHTML->ReplacementRoot = getPageURL();

// Set the root path on the server for any image included in the report
$renderAsHTML->StreamRoot = './images/';

// Execute the Report
$result_html = $rs->Render2($renderAsHTML,

// Save all images on the server (under /images/ dir)
    foreach($StreamIds as $StreamId)
        $renderAsHTML->StreamRoot = null;
        $result_png = $rs->RenderStream($renderAsHTML,

        if (!$handle = fopen("./images/" . $StreamId, 'wb'))
            echo "Cannot open file for writing output";

        if (fwrite($handle, $result_png) === FALSE)
            echo "Cannot write to file";
// include the Report within a Div on the page
echo '<html><body><br/><br/>';
echo '<div align="center">';
echo '<div style="overflow:auto; width:700px; height:600px">';
    echo $result_html;
echo '</div>';
echo '</div>';
echo '</body></html>';
