Have SSRS send email with report when a field changes in database

Use SSRS to send emails.  I have an application that records inspection results.   There will be a column in a table that change.  Inspection result will go from "null" to "pass" or "fail"
when this field change occurs.  I would like for ssrs to send out an email to an email address configured for the customer on that inspection table.  Is there a way to do this.  The application itself has a rudimentary way of doing it but i dont like it.

I'm thinking some sort of trigger needs to be initiated and then ssrs email the user... any insight or document for the ssrs process would be awsome

Hi,

you don't need SSRS for that. You can configure Database Mail in your SQL Server (create a profile using any SMTP server in your environment which can be used to send mails) and then you can use an AFTER UPDATE trigger to send mails using sp_send_dbmail.

The linked article also contains further links on how to use Database Mail and how to configure it.

Cheers,

Christian
