Thread: Export report with dynamic filename

  1. #1

    Default Export report with dynamic filename

    Hi folks, I'm exporting a report with the follow url:
    Code:
    http://localhost:8080/pentaho/content/reporting/execute/solution/clients/client_list/ClientReport.xls?solution=solution&path=/clients/client_list&name=ClientReport.prpt&output-target=table/excel;page-mode=flow
    There is any way to change the filename dynamically, I need the format ClientReport-YYYYMMDD.xls (ClientReport-20140601.xls) .

    Any suggestion?

    The content of the "Content-Disposition" header (which defines the default filename your browser offers you when writing the file) is hard-coded to the file name of the report definition in the solution repository.

    So far there is no way around that.

    There used to be a way, when there were action sequences..Even now, if its Excel that you want, you can work your way around with some minimal shell scripting to change the report file name after downloading it.. Do you want this excel to be shown to you from the UI, or is it be a backend process for a scheduled report generation?
