Accessing Saved Report output in json from Splunk Rest API


I have some reports saved under search app. I want to access these report output via Splunk REST API in a java program. I am trying below rest API for accessing output in java program.

API: https://hostname:8089/services/saved/searches/report_name

I can get all related details of this report but unable to get actual output.

Can anyone help me getting the output of this report in json format.
