Scheduling report to be saved at dynamic path

I have request to save a bo report to a path which is different each month. For example:

April report will be saved to \SharedDrive\202104

May report will be saved to \SharedDrive\202105

and so on.

Is it possible in BO. Is there any way to build this functionality.

The only way I know of to have this functionality would be to write a program using either the Java or the .NET SDK that will run on a schedule - either as a Program in BOBJ or through the Windows Scheduler - to calculate the current month’s folder name and schedule the report.

SAP is pushing the RESTful Web Service SDK for this type of work because it will work with any programming language that can make HTTP calls. However, there are some limits to the ability to set parameters when scheduling through REST.
