API Support for Virtual Report Suites ("Get" and "Save" methods)

Creating and editing Virtual Report Suites (VRS) via the API would be a great feature. We love the VRS and so we use many of them, i.e. hundreds  of them. It is not a job you want to do by hand to create more than 400 similar VRS in a row. Actually we are working with more than 800 VRS for our client and hundreds of further VRS are planned.

 

We are used to be able to automate every frontend action via the API. Unfortunately we can't create or edit VRS via the API at the moment. Only getting their name is supported.  

 

So what we would appreciate are features like "Get VRS" and "Save VRS" similar to existing "Get" and "Save" methods in the API. The "Get VRS" Method's response might at least include the VRS' name and definition. The "Save VRS" shall include every feature we are used from the web interface when creating or editing VRS.

Good news @Ippers!  The Analytics Admin API already supports Virtual Report Suite managment:

 

ReportSuite.SaveVirtualReportSuite - https://marketing.adobe.com/developer/documentation/analytics-administration-1-4/r-savevirtualreport...

 

ReportSuite.DeleteVirtualReportSuite

https://marketing.adobe.com/developer/documentation/analytics-administration-1-4/r-deletevirtualrepo...

 

ReportSuite.GetVirtualReportSuiteSettings - https://marketing.adobe.com/developer/documentation/analytics-administration-1-4/r-getvirtualreports...

 

After creating the Virtual Report Suite you can call the Company.GetReportSuites API method and in the returned list of Report Suites you will see "virtual":true returned for Virtual Report Suites.
