Export Report via API returns JSON and not file data (ExportReportInGroup)

Hi All,


Posting this here in case anyone else has the same issue.
I have already raised this with Microsoft Support, but I am yet to get an answer. I will post any updates when I get them in case it helps someone else.


The Issue:
Using the Export Report In Group function as explained in the docs is returning a JSON object and not the file data as documented.
This is a change in behaviour that started this week .

As the documentation does not match what is being returned - I have no idea what is going on.
The service returns a status code of 200 (success) so it is not considered an error.

Anyone else seeing this? or is it just me?
