SSRS Execution Log Database for SQL 2012?

We recently upgraded our reporting server from SQL 2005 to SQL 2012. I am trying to find out how to create a RSExecutionLog database. I have been unable to find any information for SQL 2012. I can find toe old information for 2005. Does anyone know if it is the same? Could you point me to some instructions?

I'm not sure about the RSExecutionLog db as I've never used it, but are you aware that the ReportServer database itself contains a view called ExecutionLog3?  Depending on what you need, that might be sufficient.

More details on what each field contains: Report Server Execution Log and the ExecutionLog3 View

As for RSExecutionLog, that is a "sample" which was created for SSRS 2005, I don't think it has ever been updated to later versions.  It's not showing up on any search results in any case...

Thanks for the info.

What we did was migrated from Reporting Services 2005 to 2012. We used the RSExecutionLog db to report on for historical purposes. We have quite a few reports written for that. We really don't want to rewrite all the reports but we will if we have to. I would think there would be another solution.

Okay, understood.  Depending on how the scripts for RSExecutionLog were written it might be possible to get it working on 2012 with some possibly smaller changes.  But it all depends.  SSRS 2005 also has an ExecutionLog view.  If the RSExecutionLog script is based on that view then it should still work on 2012 because that same view still exists.  That's why they've appended a version number to the name of the new view.  As far as I understood, the "core" of the RSExecutionLog application is an SSIS package.  Would you be able to upload it here?  I'll then have a look at it to see how it's been build.  (I tried to download it but am apparently unable to find it...)
