recently try downloading a report from report designer web and the button is disabled, then download the client for windows design and find that it does not support the api rest data source option.I need to build a report from an api rest type datasource and then generate the rdl file

Hi Juan, 

Thanks for your interest in BoldReports. 

We have restricted the download option in our demo server and for WebAPI datasource we need to add the extension. We will consider to included WebAPI datasource option in demo server for upcoming releases and as of now we suggest you install the On-Premise build to design the report based on your requirement.

Hi Juan, 

For your requirement, we are recommending designing the report using Report Designer available in Embedded Reporting Tools Build Add On instead of using our demo server. You have to download Bold Reports Embedded Reporting Tools from our Bold Reports site using your Syncfusion registered account. 


As of now, we don’t have the WebAPI datasource as default option with ReportDesigner. So, we request you to download the additional files from below link and replace it below mentioned installed location to work with WebAPI data source. 
Location: $installed driver$\Program Files (x86)\ Bold Reports\Embedded Reporting Tools\Utilities\Report Designer

Hi Juan, 

We have created the previously shared file compatible with our latest Bold Reports 2.1 SP release version 2.1.23 version which has been released on January 8, 2020. We suspect that you have replaced the shared files with 2.1.14 Bold Reports version and due to this the issue has been occurred. So, we suggest you upgrade to latest release and replace the file in mentioned location to resolve this issue. 

Vinoth S.
