Add Report Builder Definition To Visual Studio/SSDT Solution

Add Report Builder Definition To Visual Studio/SSDT Solution

(OP)

I am just getting to grips with SSRS 2012.
I have created a report in Report Builder and saved it to my SSRS database and it runs fine from the Report Manager website.
I have also created a solution with a separate report from Visual Studio/SSDT and deployed it successfully to the same reports server.

Is it possible to add the definition from Report Builder into a Visual Studio/SSDT Solution a bit like you would do with
an 'Add Item' selection against the solution? I can't see how to do it without the .rdl file in a windows folder.
The Report Builder report definition seems to be stored entirely in the Catalog file of the Reports Server.

Dazed and confused.

Remember.. 'Depression is just anger without enthusiasum'.

The Report Manager has a "Download" option which will let you drop the RDL into a folder somewhere, and then use "Add Item" to get it into your project.
