Change subscription report delivery to

Posted on 2009-07-06

We're running SQL Server Reporting Services 2005.

We've replaced an employee so they need to get all the subscriptions of their predecessor.  Is there SQL I can run that will change the delivery recipients on all the subscriptions?

Ideally I'd run something like:
Update Subscriptions
Set DeliveryTo = 'Tom';'Jane'
Where DeliveryTo = 'Tom';'Sue'

Thanks,
 TT

update data in Subscriptions table (ReportServer database), [ExtensionSettings] column
here is an example:

<ParameterValues>
<ParameterValue><Name>TO</Name><Value>00225930</Value></ParameterValue>
<ParameterValue><Name>IncludeReport</Name><Value>True</Value></ParameterValue>
<ParameterValue><Name>RenderFormat</Name><Value>EXCEL</Value></ParameterValue>
<ParameterValue><Name>Subject</Name><Value>@ReportName was executed at @ExecutionTime</Value>
</ParameterValue><ParameterValue><Name>IncludeLink</Name><Value>True</Value></ParameterValue>
<ParameterValue><Name>Priority</Name><Value>NORMAL</Value></ParameterValue>
</ParameterValues>

change here <Value>LogonName</Value>

you may want to change [OwnerID] column as well, but you have to lookup in Users table to find corresponding ID

sorry; so, instead:
<ParameterValue><Name>TO</Name><Value>00225930</Value></ParameterValue>
change to
<ParameterValue><Name>TO</Name><Value>LogonName</Value></ParameterValue>

Ended up running this:
Update Subscriptions
Set ExtensionSettings =
replace(cast(ExtensionSettings as nvarchar(max)),'PersonX',PersonY'),
Description = Replace(Description,'PersonX','PersonY')
Where SubscriptionID in
(select
        S.[SubscriptionID]
from
    [Subscriptions] S inner join [Catalog] CAT on S.[Report_OID] = CAT.[ItemID]
    left outer join [ActiveSubscriptions] A with (NOLOCK) on S.[SubscriptionID]
= A.[SubscriptionID]
Where ExtensionSettings like '%PersonX%')
