How to show blob data in an editable report in Pega 5.5 where I don't have report definition?
In Pega 5 version we have list view and summary view as options for reporting. How can we show unexposed columns or Blob data in a report like structure, which user can edit and also submit the form The edited data will now be saved in database. How to accomplish this requirement?

If I understood it correctly then you want to fetch the pzPVStream content via a report, then modify it and then re save it.
I don't think it is possible via report. In report you can show the data to your end user. If you want to edit them then you have to identify other means like mapping the data in row repeat or something and let them do the changes and then resave that.
And when you fetch and present the BLOB data to user, it automatically decompressed (or "inflated") and present them to user. And at the time of save it compressed together (or "deflated") into a single column.
Thank you for your reply. I went through the help article regarding this; it suggests to use a declare index rule in the join tab of the listview for the unexposed properties. But for this I need to create properties in the Index class and also maintain an index database table; and also I have to check the read-only option for the listview if I use join. So I have used only the exposed properties in the listview and with the help of single-row-single-click-activity I am launching a harness in which the user can edit and save the instance in the database.
But here I am facing another issue that the harness is getting launched in a separate window in the same browser session, while I need to launch the harness in the current window replacing the listview report. Just like on a button we have 'current window'/'pop-up window'/'current frame' options. Could you please help me regarding this. Thank you once again.
