    Hi Shilpi,

    This is possible, however this functionality is present from SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform V 4.2 onwards.

    You can simply use the following URL to retrieve the template that can be used as source documents of a specific publication.

    URL: http://<baseURL>/publications/<publication-SI_ID>/reportDocuments

    Method: GET

    Body: NONE

    The above request will gives you the response like this:

    <entry xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">

    <content type="application/xml">

    <attrs xmlns="http://www.sap.com/rws/bip">

    <attr name="documentID" type="string">[7453, 9915]</attr>

    <attr name="disableRefreshAtRuntime" type="string">[]</attr>

    </attrs>

    </content>

    </entry>

    The attribute "documentID" gives you the SI_ID of the report templates used in Publication. Further you can get the report names & their respective type using the SI_ID retrieved from the above request.

    For more detail information, you can refer Section 6.7 - Publication of Developer Guide of REST SDKs version 4.2.

    Hope this information helps you.

    Thanks,

    Shailendra
