[CLOSED] Report Caster API / Delete Reports from Library
Hello All

We would like to delete reports using API/Python in WF Ver 8.1.05 .. Anyone here able to delete reports using API? If you have, would appreciate if you can share here or even the documentation for WF 8.1.05 API RC.. I understand there is documentation for WF ver 8.2 but we are still on 8.1.5 and per IBI we cannot use 8.2 API with 8.1.5 Version

Thanks

If you are using Python to connect via the API, you will have to perform a login first.

I haven't done a delete, only run reports via the API from Python.

Thanks Waz
Yes I have tried login using API .. we googled to see how can we delete reports using API.. we came across this url
https://webfocusinfocenter.inf...webservices_8201.pdf

we had a issue grabbing version of the report in RC, that's when we contacted IBI Support and were told that the API code we were trying to use is for 8.2 and we have 8.1.5..
I see you are using WF 8.2 , would it be lot to convert to 8.2 from 8.1.05M

Thanks

FOCdeveloper, you should consider upgrading to 8.2 since 8.105 is pretty dated. There are migration considerations but in the long run, going to the 8.2 will be well worth it, as it'll make your installation more current. Here's a link to the doc for Migration. It's a good starting point.

Hi FOCdeveloper,

Go to the admin console / Configuration / Application Settings / Security, and turn on IBI_Enable_Test_Page

Then try these addresss
{http[s]://host[: port]}/ibi_apps/rs?IBIRS_action=TEST
{http[s]://host[: port]}/ibi_apps//WFServlet?IBFS1_action=TEST
{http[s]://host[: port]}/ibi_apps//WFServlet?IBFS1_action=TEST1

The have test calls for many function, including deleting.
