FIX: SSRS subscriptions fail to run for a report that connects to a SharePoint External list

Aplica-se a: SQL Server 2012 DeveloperSQL Server 2012 EnterpriseSQL Server 2012 Enterprise Core Mais


Assume that you have a report that connects to a SharePoint External list, and then you set up a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or 2016 Reporting Services (SSRS) subscription for the report. In this situation, the subscription fails to run, and you receive the following error message:

Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportProcessing.ReportProcessingException: Query execution failed for dataset 'DatasetName'. ---> Microsoft.BusinessData.Infrastructure.BdcException: The shim execution failed unexpectedly - Proxy creation failed. Default context not found.


This issue occurs because the SPServiceContext or SPServiceContextScope object is never created.


This issue is fixed in the following cumulative updates for SQL Server:

       Cumulative update 8 for SQL Server 2016 SP1

       Cumulative Update 8 for SQL Server 2012 SP3


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
