Register PostgreSQL data source extension in application startup ASP.NET

To register the extension in the ASP.NET Web application, follow the below steps.

  1. Open the code-behind file Global.asax.cs and add the following using statement.

        using BoldReports.Web;
  2. Then register the assembly name BoldReports.Data.PostgreSQL in Application_Start using ReportConfig.DefaultSettings as follows to use the PostgreSQL data extension.

        protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            System.Web.Http.GlobalConfiguration.Configuration.Routes.MapHttpRoute(
            name: "DefaultApi",
            routeTemplate: "api/{controller}/{action}/{id}",
            defaults: new { id = RouteParameter.Optional });
    
            AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetData("SQLServerCompactEditionUnderWebHosting", true);
    
            //Use the below code to register extensions assembly into report designer
            ReportConfig.DefaultSettings = new ReportSettings().RegisterExtensions(new List<string> { "BoldReports.Data.PostgreSQL" });
        }

ASP.NET Core

To register the extension in the ASP.NET Core application, follow the below steps.

  1. Open the file Startup.cs and add the following using statement.

        using BoldReports.Web;
  2. Then register the package name BoldReports.Data.PostgreSQL in Startup as follows using ReportConfig.DefaultSettings as follows to use the PostgreSQL data extension.

        public void Configure(IApplicationBuilder app, IWebHostEnvironment env, ILoggerFactory loggerFactory)
        {
            loggerFactory.AddConsole(Configuration.GetSection("Logging"));
            loggerFactory.AddDebug();
    
            AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetData("SQLServerCompactEditionUnderWebHosting", true);
    
            //Use the below code to register extensions assembly into report designer
            ReportConfig.DefaultSettings = new ReportSettings().RegisterExtensions(new List<string> { "BoldReports.Data.PostgreSQL" });
        }

To register multiple data extensions in the application, provide the assembly name's as list of strings.
