I installed trial version of Crystal Report 2016 and Crystal Server 2016 on one machine. I was not able to access crystal server business intelligence rest api (http://localhost:6405/biprws/). After uninstall Crystal Report 2016 from machine, I am able to call rest api.

I was working for use sample reports and export that using rest call. But a lot of problem is coming those are mention below :

When I was tried to use http://localhost:6405/biprws/infostore/5273/rpt/export?mime_type=application/pdf for export report in pdf. It is giving error

<error> <error_code>404</error_code> <message>Resource not supported for the requested object. (RWS 00010)</message></error>

I tried to find reason and got something mention below :

    Hi Harsh,

    No, you will not be able to use CR 2016 reports with the REST APIs. The Crystal Reports REST APIs will work with "Crystal Reports For Enterprise reports" created with the Java designer, but not with CR 2016 reports created with the C++ designer (crw32.exe).

      Might have answered my own question but to try and complete the thought. Here is the documentation on the scheduleforms API call.

      page 101

      I'm getting the 200 because I'm using the Get which provides the body for the subsequent Put that needs to occur. I implemented that and now I'm at

      405,<error> <error_code>RWS 00057</error_code> <message>Method not allowed; method specified in the Request-Line is not allowed for the resource identified by the Request-URI (RWS 00057)</message>

    Hi Robert - I believe Crystal for Enterprise is only available through the SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise BI platform client download site at the SAP Support Portal - -

    I don't recall seeing it on SAP Store.
