The new improvements for the virtual report suites VRSare really great. what i love the most is the ability to create VRS with component curation - this way the user just sees those dimension/metrics that i want, and i can even rename the components in a way the business understands.

but: setting up the VRS for different users/user groups can end in a big effort by creating a bunch of VRS just to meet all the business requirements.

Idea: add API function to create and change VRS.

possivle solution: having a normal VRS im already able to get the settings (GetSettings | Adobe Developer Connection ). it would be great if i have an option to change the metrics/dimension of the VRS by a single API call the same way as i can do with the normal report suites

We actually do have a method already for programmatically creating and updating VRS. There's a little bit of a bug in our developer site which presents it from being shown (because it is at the bottom of the list of methods), but here is a direct link to the doc:

hi BenjaminGaines

thanks for the link to the function. but there is no option for „component curation“ within the function.

i have no pain with creating the VRS. the pain is selecting the components for „component curation“ either when i create or when i maintain the VRS. what i am looking for is an easy way to download the VRS components as well as change them.

therefore i would love to see that the function mentioned by you could be expanded by an additional parameter „components“ which can be used for the desired „component curation“
