The Report provider exists for the sole purpose of simplifying bulk updates driven by Identity Panel data. While it would be possible to schedule a report download as a delimited file then iterate over the file, it is much simpler to simply use the report provider.
The Report provider is added to a MIM Test project and requires selection of an existing report via drop-down list. It also allows an optional point-in-time parameter.
Report parameters are specified just like a report schedule step, and may use the rule engine to produce values from variables.
You can also add parameter called "refresh" with a value of "true" to force the report to generate from scratch every time instead of using cached data.
The report provider has no fixtures and no assertions. The only functionality is it supports is the Data Image API used by the Load Provider.
