Start NPrinting 17 task with XML request or command line?

Hi all,

I am using NPrinting 16 and I really like the possibility to trigger NPrinting with a XML request, since NPrinting does not have to work every 5 minutes...

Now we are thinking about the upgrade to NPrinting 17. Is it possible to use a XML request or command line to start a NPrinting task?

Or maby using the API?

Thanks for your help!

hi

currently there is no solution like the one in version16

there is an API , but it seems you can only call a specific report and not a task

here is a link to API manual

Ok Thanks!

I saw in the manual the next line, so maby we can request a task in a newer version...

OnDemandRequestUp

type (optional)

String it must be "report" or "task". "task" type is not supported at the moment.

Enum:

report

task

Hi,

I confirm you that the ability to trigger a task from API is in our roadmap and that it will be implemented soon (actually it's one of our top priorities).
