proxyURL string

When the browser is not capable of saving files locally—for example,

The implementation of the server-side proxy has to be done by you.
The proxy receives a POST request with the following parameters in the request body:

  • contentType—The MIME type of the file.
  • base64—The base-64 encoded file content.
  • fileName—The file name, as requested by the caller. The proxy is expected to return the decoded file with the Content-Disposition header set to attachment; filename="<fileName.xslx>".
