For custom reports, the selection criteria, such as time frame, group-by, and sort-by are part of the report definition. The API returns any shared custom reports. Note that quotes are not required around the report name and any spaces in the report name must be URL encoded to %20 .
For custom reports created in a specific VSYS, you can retrieve them directly by specifying the vsys parameters.
