    In my particular instance I have an XML datasource accessed by a REST call. I'd like to be able to change the request parameters so that I can pull back data specifically for a report.
    For example. http://myurl.com/getData.xml?orderId={orderID}

    The documentation seems to suggest a similar facility is available by using a "select" input variable in order to filter the resultset, but this will only work efficiently against an SQL datasource. For XML/JSON the entire datasource is read first and then filtered afterwards. This will not work for me as the full datasource will be too large to retrieve in one go.

    I know I could use the engine to alter the datasource at runtime but during development of the template using AutoTag it would be nice to hit different endpoints using an input variable rather than having to edit the datasource each time.
