    Hello, I have some performance issues in Telerik Report and I'm testing the Telerik Report Server.

    I noticed that to render a PDF using telerik report server is faster than rendering in html ...

    I want to know if it is possible to make a POST for the telerik report server API, to render a report informing the connection to the database as a parameter?

    I have another question, when I request for the telerik report server API to render a report in PDF format, will this report be rendered by the windows service "telerik.reportServer.ReportAgent"? And does the API use this same windows service to render the report?

    I am expecting that I can request for API to render my report in a pdf or csv format using this windows service, as it appears to be faster than rendering in html.

    Thanks for your attention.

    I have one more question, using the API is it possible to create a Scheduling to send an email once the report is rendered in pdf?

    Hello Marcel,

    The connection string is part of the report definition. Via requests to the API you can pass only the report ID, parameter values, and rendering configuration. More information can be found in the Reporting REST Service API Reference. This applies to both Telerik Reporting and Telerik Report Server, since the latter hosts the Reporting REST service and uses it to render reports for preview purposes.

    The Telerik.ReportServer.ServiceAgent windows service is used only for Scheduled Tasks and Data Alerts. The REST service does not communicate with the windows service directly.

    Using the Report Server API you can create a Scheduled Task. This task will be executed according to the configured scheduled task plan and an e-mail will be sent including the rendered PDF document. More information is available in the Scheduled Tasks Management article.
