how to get expense data

I am trying to get all the expenses information based on a filter by "Downloader" endpoint.

Currently, we have some expenses uploaded by mobile app, and I can also create new expenses by api calls.

The issue starts when I try to get all the expenses based on a filter.

1 - I exported a report with "Report Exporter" ("type":"combinedReportData") filtering by a start date. This returned a file name.

2- Using the file name above, I called Downloader api endpoint ("type": "download")

3- It only returned a string "template@expensify_template.ftl" .

I expect it to return a response with all the expense information (is that right?) . It looks like it is related to templates, not sure how to create a template though, not so clear in the doco.

So, what am I doing wrong? How can I get the details of all the uploaded expenses?
