Considerations for API Usage

  • Salesforce Org needs to have API enabled and authenticated access
  • Use content-type: application/json with a POST call
  • Support for Summary, Matrix and Tabular report formats
  • Use API version 43.0 & set Enabled Lightning Joined Reports (Beta) to work with Joined Reports
  • Maximum rows returned = 2000 / report
  • All limits for reports created through Report Builder hold true for the API
