Check the report status

Check if your report is ready by making a GET request to the URL specified in href (under _links) in the response to your create report request.

Create the get status request

To make the request:

  1. Change the HTTP method to GET.
  2. Enter the report-specific URL in the address bar.
  3. Complete the "Authorization" tab as described in the preceding step.
  4. In the "Body" tab, select the "none" radio button.
