generate pdf file of a scheduled report containing data and a graph
I have a report containing data and a chart, and using an agent (scheduled auto-execution) I want to email this report (data and graph) in pdf format. Pega has any OOTB rule to generate the report pdf with the data and chart?
The OOTB Report Scheduling provides us the ability to receive a copy of the report by email each time the scheduled report runs. We have an option to choose the file format as PDF/Excel. However when a report containing chart is exported by the scheduling wizard in PDF format , the chart is not exported and only the data part is received in PDF file as output.
Please go through the below link to see if the alternate way mentioned here to export chart in scheduled report to PDF file is helpful to you.
A possible solution might be that from the agent (scheduled auto-execution) call the OOTB activity "HTMLtoPDF" and it generate PDF file with the data and graph of the report, and then send this pdf file.
is the OOTB activity "HTMLtoPDF" valid for this purpose?
Can a Pega support technician answer me if the proposal to use the OOTB activity "HTMLtoPDF" is correct?
