Updating ByD reports using web services


I know oData Services is used to retrieve reports from BYD out of the system and outputs to XML result. Now, is there any possible way to amend existing BYD report data using any web services and upload it back to BYD?.

    Hello John,

    I am not exactly sure about the use case here. Bydesign reports can only be retrieved based the transactions/ data created in the system.

    uploading report data back to Bydesign is not possible as there will not be corresponding data/ transaction in the system.

    for example, if you retrieve the GL line item report, it will list Journal entries created in the system for the specified selection parameters. when you amend the report outside bydesign and upload it back, system will need to create the amended entries (In this case new Journal entries or update existing journal entry) which is not possible.

    I hope this will answer to your question.
