Download Report/Invoice via API ?

Posted on by 45


I Have created a Codeunit wich creates a Report (Posted Invoice PDF) and writes it into a stream to download ...
Within a Page Extension, this works perfectly fine!

But how can i call this codeunit as a webservice api (i want a json return ... base64 for the pdf and a string for the report Name) ?

i am thankful for any help

    You can write a codeunit with a public method that execute the report and returns the base64 string of the document and then call it as an OData endpoint.
