The name of this property is used as the title of the column.

subscribers Array subscribers contains an array of subscribers. Each subscriber contains the following –

Filters String This is an optional field in which you can specify the filter to be applied to this report, which is used by the Axonize Portal when displaying the report. It is a JSON representation of the OData query string.

The OData query string will appear in the Filters tab of the report, as described on page 153. Specifying the string in this property enables you to edit this filter in the user interface and to immediately affect the report that is displayed.

For example: “filters”:”[{\”filter\”:\”createDate\”,\”msgKeyLabel\”:\”msg_create_date\”,\”msgKeyDisplayName\”:\”msg_by_create_date\”,\”type\”:\”Date\”,\”propName\”:\”createDate\”,\”operator\”:\”lessThan\”,\”filterValue\”:\”2018-02-12T12:20:42+02:00\”}]”

customProperties String Specifies the endpoint that is called in the custom report service. The custom report service consists of predefined SQL and API queries that are used to generate a custom report. Use this property when creating a custom report instead of filters.

The following properties are not relevant when using the customProperties property –

  • Entity
  • Query
  • Filters
  • Columns
customProperties/endpoint String The name of the endpoint that is contacted in the custom report service to generate a custom report.
createdByDisplayName String The name of the User who created the Report.
