This past week, I made the goal of automating the deployment of our first SSRS report at work. I created the report and after adding the report to source control, my Object Explorer looked like the image below.
I added my solution to source control and synced the project up to Github. However, when my colleague tried to clone the repo and open the Report Project, they saw an image like the one below.
However, this method of interacting with SSRS reports is not what we are used to seeing. I tried several internet searches, but I was unable to find why the Reports folder was missing from the solution. I finally started clicking around happened to find an icon that displayed Solutions and Folders.
Clicking on the Solutions and Foldersicon returned the Reports folder in the Solution Explorer window.
If you find yourself looking at an SSRS Report in Visual Studio, but you don’t see the Shared Data Sources, Shared Data Sets, or Reports folders try to selecting Solutions and Folders. You might be using looking at the project
