These report web services allow users to return a report in a specified format, such as HTML, PDF, XLS, DOC, etc. The PRINT function returns a report in a printable format.


 HTML / HTMLCHARTONLY / HTMLTABLEONLY

The HTML request will return an HTML representation of the report. The HTML document will be stored in the BinaryData parameter, as Base64 encoded data. The report's charts and/or images will be stored in an array of Chart parameters. These artefacts will need to be manually decoded by the client system, and the URL request string is used to embed the URL within the HTML for decoding the Base64 images.

There are three HTML related web services that display slightly varying HTML documents:

  • HTML: This will return the chart and table in the HTML format, if both exist.
  • HTMLCHARTONLY: This service only returns the chart of the report in the HTML format.
  • HTMLTABLEONLY: This service only returns the report table in the HTML format.

Instructions

See below for step-by-step instructions on how to perform this call, using a Java example:

 Step-by-step instructions
  • Here's a basic request to perform this call, which includes logging in as the admin user and specifying the web service call to perform:

    ReportServiceRequest rsr = new ReportServiceRequest();
     
    rsr.setLoginId("admin@yellowfin.com.au");
    rsr.setPassword("test");
    rsr.setOrgId(new Integer(1));
    
    rsr.setReportRequest("TEXT");
  • If you need to specify the client org where the report exists, add this to your code:

    rsr.setOrgRef("org1");      // search for the report in this client org



  • Specify a report to view it in its TEXT form:

    rsr.setReportId(60712);



  • Once the request is configured, carry out the call:

    ReportServiceResponse rs=rsc.remoteReportCall(rsr);

    Initialize the Report web service. Click here to learn how to do this. 

 

  • The response returned will contain the parameters related to the report. (See the Response Parameters table above for more details.)


Complete Example

Below is a full example of this function. To use it for yourself, carry out the following the steps:

  1. Copy the code and save it as ws_textreport.jsp.
  2. Put the file in the root folder, which is Yellowfin/appserver/webapps/ROOT.
  3. Adjust host, port, and admin user to add details according to your environment.
  4. Run http://<host>:<port>/ws_textreport.jsp from your Internet browser.
