Retrieve a PDF version of a report using a Web Service Endpoint (REST API)

Currently the only way to obtain a report using the REST API is by attaching it as a file and then getting that file.

This means that if you need to generate the report you would also need to create an action to trigger the report creation and attach it to a document, then query for that document's attachments and finally get the desired file.

Using the screen-based API it is possible to directly execute a published report Submit action with its defined parameters and get the PDF content directly as a 64base encoded string.

It would be great have a report endpoint in the REST API that allowed specifying a report with its parameters and responded with the report content.
