Changing datasource for BICS connection based WebI report


I am trying to change the BEx query source of my dataprovider.  The grammar given in the User guide is

GET <webiURL>/documents/10554/dataproviders/mappings?originDataproviderIds=DP0,DP1&targetDatasourceId=10326;Z_BOBJ;AAQUERY_RESTRICT_KF

After few research I am able to find the following details in the above grammar


<BICS Connection ID>;<Query Technical name>;<?>

I couldn't figure out the third part in the above string.

Without that third part when I try to send the get request to the restful server.  I got the attached mapping result

Since everything is mapped successfully, I tried to get the parameter list by posting this mapping as pay load in my post request.

I got "The changesource operation has failed. Please verify the pertinency of the mappings and retry." as the response.  Where am I going wrong, it is due to missing third option.

Kindly clarify.  I am on SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.1 Support Pack 3. Version:
