Crystal Reports REST retrieve rpt format of report

I'm trying to retrieve a report in crystal reports rpt format from crystal report's REST services. So, a user can use the drill down features in the crystal reports viewer. What is the URI I should use? I can download the report in other formats with the URI:

<baseURL>/infostore/<reportID>/rpt/<instanceId>/export?mime_type=<mime/type>

but application/rpt doesn't work and /export just gives me an xml file.

Thanks in advance,

Josh

    Hi Josh,

    downloading a copy of the report locally won't work. What you will need in this case is the Javascript viewer APIs to view the document and bind it to a viewer.
    Have a look at how to set this up in the following document: SAP Crystal Reports JavaScript API Developer Guide
