Calling a webi report chart into other applications


  Is it possible to call a webi report chart (not the whole report) from a external application. I know we can call a webi report from other applications but our requirement is to call only specific report parts like line graph or charts from a webi report.  Is this possible using Java SDk or RESTful SDK? If so can you please let me know how to achieve this? Thanks!

    Hi Rakesh,

    Yes, you can export the chart element and use it in another application.  To access the Element in a report tab of a webi document, use the following request:

    GET    .../raylight/v1/documents/<docId>/reports/<reportId>/elements/<elementId>

    See section 8.4.10 in the documentation: SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.1 – SAP Help Portal Page

    Select the latest (highest SP) document titled:
