I have a set of Reporting Services reports that use a shared datasource. I don't have Visual Studio installed at the deployment location so I have to deploy the reports using the Report Manager. How do I deploy the datasource and the reports so that the reports will use the datasource? When I try to run the report from the Report Manager I get the following error message: The report server cannot process the report. The data source connection information has been deleted. (rsInvalidDataSourceReference).

Hi,
have you deploy shared data source before when you are trying to deploy reports.

you can also create data source through report manager and after then you tried to deploy your report.
But your reports should used the same name which you have created through report manager.

you can also see the dependent objects (depend on data source).

On the development system a shared datasource was created with VS in the reports project.  I used VS to deploy the reports. On my dev system, Report Manager shows two folders: Data Sources (which contains the DataSource) and Reports (which contains the reports). Let's say the name of the shared datasource as it appears in both VS and Report Manager is ABC. On the production system I created two folders named Data Sources and Reports. I used the New Data Source button in the Report Manager to create a datasource named ABC in the Data Sources folder. I used the Upload File button in the Report Manager to add the reports to the Reports folder. The DataSources section of the rdl file looks like this (though each report has a different value for DataSourceID):
  <DataSources>
    <DataSource Name="ABC">
      <DataSourceReference>ABC</DataSourceReference>
      <rd:DataSourceID>1d4e3ca8-13c0-4d0d-9d63-6a28709f7a52</rd:DataSourceID>
    </DataSource>
  </DataSources>

When I view the Dependent Items for the datasource, it says: There are no reports that use the "/Data Sources/ABC" data source.  When I try to view the report in Report Manager I get the error I mentioned in the question: The report server cannot process the report. The data source connection information has been deleted. (rsInvalidDataSourceReference).

OK. I figured it out. I went to the properties of the report in Report Manager and clicked the Data Sources tab. It said that the shared data source reference was no longer valid. I clicked Browse and selected the datasource I had created and clicked Apply. Now the dependent items for the datasource shows the report and the report generates properly.

There is an application (SSRS Data Source Manager) that can fix missing data sources, and change current data sources for RDL reports and models. It can be used to change a single report / model or allow bulk changes for many reports and models.
 
There is also a health check feature, to detect and correct reports and models that have missing data sources. Multiple data sources for reports and models are also supported.

Other uses can be- changing a selection of reports to another data source, eg moving from UAT/Development to production, or server loading issues.
