adding data source i.e universe to newly created report document using rest api


I have created report document using rest api and it got created successfully.

(post url to create document : http://{0}:6405/biprws/raylight/v1/documents

Xml to post : <document><name>Some unique report name</name><folderId>13025</folderId></document>)

My requirement is, When we open new report, we do not need to select universe again.

We try to use data provider api to add data source like below :

api to call : http://[server ip]:6405/biprws/raylight/v1/documents/15698/dataproviders

post xml format : <dataprovider><name>[i put universe name here]</name><dataSourceId>[i put here universe id]</dataSourceId></dataprovider>

After calling api to add data provider, got its result like

The resource of type "Data provider" with identifier "DP0" has been successfully created.

But when I open report , I always need to choose universe(even I have only 1 universe).

I do not want user to choose universe as it already set in data provider.

I want user only needs to add query.

Please let me know if any information.

Thanks in Advance.
