Rest api for webi report Instance type (pdf ,excel)


Dear Experts,

We are facing a blocker issue while exporting the generated PDF and Excel instances of web intelligence report using Rest API. these instances are generated for a document(Report).

Here is the REST API we've used to export BO instance and the format is (Web Intelligence) ,which is working as expected.


But If we use the same API call for the instance Output Format which is in PDF or excel in the BO, the content is not available in the exported file.

We are done lots of work around getting the list of scheduled instances, though we are not able to successfully export the files


Here is our report hierarchy

  1. Reports (document)

  1. Instances (generated format Webi, PDF or Excel)

We have hundreds of Instances available for a report which will be in the following formats  Webi, PDF or XLS. so we need some support to identify the right API call to export. the webi Report instacnes Output in pdf and Excel. Appreciate your Feedback.

Thank you.
