BI 4.1 RESTful Scheduling Webi doc with Prompts (parameter ID / DPID required)


I'm trying RESTful API to schedulate report with prompts using xml payload.

About the <parameter> XML tag, must i specify the dpID? ( otherwise I get an error during "/schedules" post call)

Furthermore Why I must use the <id> element into <parameter>? Using Java SDK in BI3.x, through Prompt class I was able to identify prompt Using only its name.

Using tags <name> and <technicalName> it seems to have no effect.

I would avoid receiving this additional information. Is it possibile?

in any case, assuming that it is not possible and so it's necessary look for them by calling get (../idreport/parameters), I wonder what they mean and especially can change without a report modification?

Thank you very much for help!

    I realize this question is quite old, but in response to the question, yes, you must provide the parameter ID and dataprovider ID.

    Cosider the case where you have multiple dataproviders that might have objects with the same name.

    To change parameter values at runtime will not modify the report. The report only gets modified if you save the changes back to the CMS. (check the document lifecycle in the documentation)
