Working with shared datasets and parameters

In this recipe, we will create a shared dataset for Operations Manager event levels. Shared datasets are datasets stored in SQL Server Reporting Services which can be reused in your reports. Share datasets are typically used as a source for parameters in your reports. An Operations Manager event level identifies the level of an event, such as Information, Warning, or Error.
