How can we improve the newest version of Windward Studios Products?

Access Tags through API

It would be great if the tags were accessable throrough the Report object in the API. This would allow us to create the datasource necessary to support the template by interrogating the template.

In my case, I want to be able to create the template using a complex schema. Then when it comes time to generate the reports through the Engine, I can build the actual XML dataset that would only contain the data that template needs.

I'm sure others would come up with other uses for this. It would seem this is already something you must have for AutoTag to use internally, so I'm hoping it is just something you can make accessible.

        This seems like an ask for the ability to perform a workaround for what you are hoping is a performance increase. If so, I believe the better ask is to simply have Windward investigate doing this task on generation -- look at the tags, trim the content of the xml that isn't referenced by the template, and see if that improves performance.

        Yes this would be very useful to get access to the TagTree via the API. We would like to do the same thing minimize the the XML needed by the Engine so we don't have to pass everything we allow to be written against in the XML Schema.
