Hello everybody,

i would like to get my report from bo webclient in pdf format .

as you know there is opendocument that can be used by putting

sOutputFormat=P for pdf as explained by the doc ,

but this is providing a html page containing the pdf reader ( the html has encapsulated the pdf )


what can be the solution to get a link getting directly and only the pdf file without clicking on the save as button ?


the save as button is using downloadPDForXLS.jsp ; this function is using the sEntry value as mandatory parameter which is changing in every event ( refreshing, ... ) .

Thank you for your help.

Best regards.

If you're not afraid of SDK development, it is achievable with either Report Engine Java SDK or with RESTful Web Services SDK, should take a dozen lines of custom coding in each case. Plus some coding to take care of authentication - while OpenDocument provides a standard logon page, here you would have to create your own logic to obtain a session token. Where exactly do you need to place the link, is it some custom web page or another document, or something else?
