I found a workarround for the method delete: 1) Create a new connection with your necessary options and Method = Get 2) Let Qlik Build your REST Connection automatically and replace fields and/or settings within the script 3) Go to Data Connections within the QMC and edit the new data connection 4) Replace method=GET with method=DELETE within the field connection string 5) Save your changes and reload the script editor
--> Now you should be able to delete via Qlik and the REST-Connector 🙂
Unfortuantly I haven't found any Qlik intern solution for methods PATCH or PUT. Have you found a solution for these methods?
I need to use method DELETE in Qlik Sense REST API connection. I created a POST connection and edited it from QMC with method DELETE. But when I run the script, it is adding rows instead of removing them. Could you guys please help me in figuring out what I am doing wrong here ?
Hello, currently only GET and POST verb methods are supported in the REST connector. There is one approach where you can add an additional header attribute called X-HTTP-METHOD-OVERRIDE with the value you are trying to use such as PUT, DELETE, HEAD to override the verb method selected in the REST connector, but X-HTTP-METHOD-OVERRIDE is only currently supported in NPrinting and not Qlik Sense. You can find more information here https://support.qlik.com/articles/000092526.
In either case, there are feature requests currently open for both issues above, so I recommend contacting support and referencing that article so they can use your case to add more weight to those requests.
