Change DataProvider source via WebiServices.document in Webi UI Extensions ?


I'd like to be able to build something into WebI via Web Intelligence UI Extension Points, that can change a dataprovider for a report from one Universe to another Universe (unv to unx in this case)

I know it's possible via RESTful Web Services, but I'd like to do it from within an Extension.

The documentation for 4.1 shows a WebIntelligence Service JavaScript method WebiServices.document.updateDataProvider but it doesn't seem to take an argument for a new UniverseId.

Is there another way to do this via the JavaScript API ?  If not is this something that might be added to the WebIntelligence Service JavaScript API in 4.2 ?

If the answer to both of these is no, is there a way of accessing the RESTful Web Services calls from within the WebIntelligence Service JavaScript API without having to make another call to create a session etc ?

If changesource API which exists into RESTful webservice doesn't exist yet into Webi ExtPnt, I think it could be added in the future. Please, post your suggestion on IdeaPlace.

You could access to RESTful webservice within an extension point, however you will not work on the document currently opened into the client and you need to log on to the RESTful webservice.
