Smartsheet API report creation

01/03/17 Edited 12/09/19



We have a lot of reports, they have only small differences.

Normally it is just a filter e.g. name of "assigned to".


If we have to slightly change these reports, we have to change all the reports by hand.

Is it possible to create/change reports with the API?


I tried to do it but i did not found it in the API (Smartsheet Java SDK).

To create folders it is possible to make something like that:

        Folder folder = new Folder.CreateFolderBuilder().setName("New Folder").build();

        folder = smartsheet.homeResources().folderResources().createFolder(folder);


but the report ressources has no creation method

       report =  smartsheet.reportResources().createReport(report);


If this feature not exists, this is my feature request :-)


Thanks a lot.


  • Hello Isidor,


    There currently isn't a way to create reports, or change the Report Builder criteria from the API. I've got your vote down for this on our enhancement request list for further review by our Development team.

    Also Isidor,


    In some cases, the new (as of this writing) feature of using "Current User" as the criteria may solve some of this problem.

    Hi Shaine,

    Do you have a timeline when this API feature will be available?

    We understand that API support for modifying reports would be very useful. It's on our backlog, but it's a complex feature and I can't commit to any date.


  • Looking forward to this inclusion in the API.
