Refresh and export webi


I can export a webi document as it is but i want to refresh and export a webi document. There is only one parameter with Language = En, which is default. I tried the below in GET, it doesn't work. http://servername:6405/biprws/raylight/v1/documents/1234/parameters?lovInfo=false.

Do i have to use PUT while refreshing?

Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi Arun,

No, that is not correct.  I think you might be confusing the "<optional_parameters>" in the documentation (which are for formatting: dpi, orientation, scaling etc) with parameters in the report.

To refresh with a parameter value and export, your steps would be as follows:

(I'm assuming "Choose Language" is your prompt question and "EN" is the answer

1. Refresh with new value

PUT (Accept: application/xml)   .../documents/<docID>/parameters




        <id>0<id>                                         <--  assuming this is the correct ID

        <name>Choose Language</name>     <-- assuming this is the param name (tag not req'd)








2. Export to PDF

GET (Accept: application/pdf)   .../documents/<docID>
