To generate a report, send a POST request to the reports resource with the specified parameters detailed in the Properties section.

Report generation happens asynchronously, and may take a number of minutes to prepare. The status value in the report resource indicates whether the report is ready to download.

The report resource represents a previously requested or generated file (typically CSV) summarizing or detailing various store data, such as a customer export, sales summaries, lifetime value, etc.

Once the report is ready (indicated via the status parameter returning ready), a fx:download_url link rel will be present with a link to download the report(s). This link will only work for 10 minutes, after which point another link must be generated by making a GET request to the resource or collection. Note that the exact lifespan of this link may change in the future.
