Download/Export report without flexmonster table with just data

Abhilash asked on November 13, 2020

Is it possible to download/export the data without displaying the flexmonster table. I mean we have list of reports and have edit, download icons next to it. Edit takes you to a screen with flexmonster table but download we just want to download that specific report by just getting the data from API. 
So is it possible to export into excel/pdf without flexmonster table in UI and just with the data

Hello, Abhilash,
Thank you for reaching out to us.
If we understand correctly, you require to export the data without showing Flexmonster instance on the page. The recommended approach is to use the headless browser on the backend with a running Flexmonster instance in it. When the user presses the download icon, send the request to your server, perform exporting in the headless browser and return the resulting file.
More information about this approach can be found in our documentation. You will also find the ready to use example demonstrating how to create and manipulate Flexmonster in headless Chrome with Puppeteer’s capabilities.
Please let us know if it works for you.
Our team is looking forward to hearing your feedback.
Best regards,
