    Hi,

    IB has a "Web Service" to request Customized (XML) Reports.

    Do more people experienced problems with this web service?

    A WebService request is executed in the form of:

    Code:
    https://www.interactivebrokers.com/Universal/servlet/FlexStatementService.SendRequest?t=TOKEN_HERE&q=QUERY_ID_HERE
    When I execute this URL with a valid token + valid flex report id, I get as code: "Invalid request or unable to validate request.".

    This works correctly for many months with an unchanged (and valid) token, and unchanged flex report id.

    Thanks,
     
  2. Hi,
    I've tried it and it was working properly for me but one of our customers (we are developing a trading journal software) reported that he experienced some problems with the IB Flex Statements. Did you recreate your querries?

    This WebService seems to work again. Strange it didn't work for over 3 days. Down for maintenance I guess.
