Action Sequence Samples

Running an action sequence to generate a report

This sample renders an xaction report using a regular GET request, by populating an HTML IFRAME with the report REST URL:

http://localhost:8080/pentaho/api/repos/<path>/generatedContent?<parameters>

The parameters for the xaction are passed as simple GET parameters on the URL.

Running an action sequence to generate a report with prompts

The sample prepares a form to collect parameters and POSTs them to the xaction REST URL:

http://localhost:8080/pentaho/api/repos/<path>/generatedContent

The xaction now retrieves its parameters from the POST request body.
