  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise)


  • The exportReport() API option only exports the tables, so the header or appendix is not exported.
  • The exportView() API option exports a snapshot of the application, it calls the same function as a story, and you can select which widgets you want to export. For example, in this case, the exportView() API can be used and select only the tables you expected, then the appendix will be exported too. Please note : the exportView() API works in the same way as you export to PDF by UI feature "Export a Story as a PDF", so the restrictions mentioned in SAP Online help for the UI feature also applies to this API:Export a Story as a PDF or a PPTX | SAP Help Portal. For example ,"The PDF or PowerPoint file shows exactly what appears on your story pages at the moment that you export them. If any charts or tables in your story are scrollable, only the visible parts are included in the exported file."


Use the exportView() API instead of the exportReport() API, if the Header and Appendix are required in the exported PDF file.
