Resource not supported for the requested object. (RWS 00010)


The above url works while you try to access a report designed in Crystal Designer 2016 and hosted on BOE.

But when we try to get the report or export as pdf..using (http://<CrystalServer-Base-URL>/infostore/xxxx/rpt).. it throws 404 error

Resource not supported for the requested object. (RWS 00010)

I did search in SAP community and I got this answer:

Only Crystal reports created in SAP Crystal Reports for BusinessObjects Enterprise are supported with the RESTful web services SDK.

Is there a different designer in "SAP Crystal Reports for BusinessObjects Enterprise", if yes,

- how to get it?

- If the reports already designed using Standalone Crystal Designer, is there anyway to convert them?

    Hi Chris,

    Never go to the FRS folder to get a report, it causes all sorts of issue.

    I assume you have a Support Contract so download this test app:

    If you don't have the Universe Designer installed then comment out the code using it and remove the designer reference.

    So not clear what you want about CRD?

    The .NET SDK will not open Crystal Reports for Enterprise Reports.

    There is a very limited RESTful calls for CRD, only CR for E reports.

    You can open CR report in CR for E DEsigner.

    Do you want to just open the report and preview etc.?

    If so use my test app to properly query the CMS for the Report by name or ID

    If you are using RESTFul then I'll move your post to the BOE PLatform SDK community.

    Or... ????

    If you're trying to open/run a Crystal 2016 report using the RESTful Web Services, you'll probably need to use the OpenDocument SDK. If you want to export it to a PDF file using the SDK, you'll need to use the BI Platform Java or .NET SDK to schedule it to export. If your application requires the use of RESTful web services on the back end, it's not too difficult to "wrap" the above SDKs so that you can provide functionality through your own RESTful services - I have successfully done this for several clients.

    Yes, Crystal for Enterprise is a separate GUI, which is based on the Java Eclipse platform. You have to connect to the database using a Connection which is created in the IDT and stored in the BI Platform (Crystal Server). Having used what I call "classic" Crystal for over 20 years, I don't particularly like Crystal for Enterprise - it doesn't have all of the features of classic Crystal and I find it more difficult to use. It was originally designed to use .unx universes, BW connections, and connections to SAP HANA, but has evolved some since then.
