I'm a user of DSS to create some market data extracts (at the moment focusing on intraday summaries for future chians).
The way as manage my configurations, particularly for report and schedule definition is as follows:
- Create a sample online (e.g. "DATA-TY")
- Export it (e.g. "DATA-TY.xml") and create a template from it (e.g. "DATA-generic.xml")
- Use text tools such as vscode to quickly duplicate into similar files (e.g. "DATA-TU.xml", "DATA-FV.xml", ...)
- Upload all these files, e.g. to create schedules
My problem is that step 4 can be very cumbersome, and needs to redone every time I change a small thing in my templates. I'm therefore wondering if there is an API call for importing (report and schedule) definitions that were exported from the UI?
Looking at the API reference I only see odata json-type endpoints, without a straightforward way of converting back and forth between this and the xml formats (which again are what I get when I export/import). Am I missing something? What is the best way to automate transforming a local "DATA-TY.xml" into an online report definitions?
