Running Saved Reports and BI Queries Using the WebAPI (Prior to 6.8.4)

You can retrieve the results of a saved report or Business Intelligence (BI) query without logging into the application and searching for the desired report/BI query. All you have to do is save a report/BI query with all of the desired criteria in advance, and when required, provide the portal with your AudienceView User ID, password and the name of the saved report/BI query. The portal then runs the report immediately and displays the results.

Using the Download Report Portal

Prior to using the Download Report Portal, you must have a report saved/BI query. You can save criteria for any of the AudienceView reports and BI queries, but you must note the name that you have used for the saved report/BI query criteria as this is the trigger for the portal execution. For more information, refer to Saving a Report and Saving a BI Query.

You can navigate to the download portal using the following paths in your internet browser, depending on whether you are running a saved report or BI query:

Saved Reports
http://<server>/webAPI/downloadReport.asp?download=1&loginName=<user>&loginPassword=<password>&report=<Saved Report>

Saved Business Intelligence Queries
http://<server>/WebAPI/downloadReport.asp?download=1&loginName=<User>&loginPassword=<password>&bi=<Saved Business Intelligence Query>

where <server> is the name of the application server where your AudienceView application is stored.

Once you have saved your report/BI criteria:

  1. Navigate to the URL, and the report will be run.
    A 'File Download' security warning displays.
  2. To open the report/BI and view it, click 'Open'.
    The desired report displays.
  3. To save the report:
    1. Click 'Save'.
      AudienceView displays the 'Save As' dialogue box for saving files.
    2. Enter the desired name for the saved file in the 'File name' field.
    3. Enter the desired type for the file in the 'Save as type' field.
    4. Use the location explorer to navigate to the system folder to which you save the file.
    5. Click 'Save'.
      The report file is saved in the desired location.
