This request is almost a duplicate of a request from the PDF reporting plugin: https://midori.zendesk.com/entries/21782778-Automation-API-DONE-. But having this functionality available through REST would be much preferred. My use case would be to allow an external system to submit a JQL query, a report name, and a list of people who would receive (through email) the generated report. Actually, if this were possible, I wouldn't need the other requests I filed to execute scheduled reports or reports on workflow transitions. We use a small external "JIRA Webhook Handler (JWH)" program that catches webhooks sent from JIRA and then executes other actions in JIRA (and other systems) through REST. If your reporting plugin just had a simple REST interface, we could build all the behavioral stuff we needed right into the JWH.
