Building a Plugin on Report Designer to connect to REST API

Hello All, I am trying to build a plugin for Pentaho Reporting Designer which connects to a Custom Data Source. The Data Source is a REST API with OAuth 2 Security. The goal is to connect to this API (specifying parameters like clientId, username, password, tenant, baseurl etc) and getting data which can then be formatted to produce reports within report designer. We have a PDI plugin which already connects to the REST API but we dont know how to use it within Report Designer. Any help or alternative ways to solve the problem will be greatly appreciated.
