Suggestion: Provide detailed status in fetch report output

Question asked by Eric Augustus on Aug 5, 2015

When downloading a saved report using the call, '/api/2.0/fo/report', and 'action=fetch', you either get the saved report or the message 'Report cannot be fetched', if it's still rendering. It would be nice if the output would include more status detail; similar to what is provided when you list reports using the 'action=list' call, which includes rendering percentage, and state.

 

As it is now, after requesting a launch report, I use the report list to monitor progress of the report rendering, and then do a fetch report when it's finished. It would save an extra API call if the fetch report call would provide the same status as report list.
