Cannot get task by app name with QRS API


I am trying to get a list of tasks that are related to a task. Normally I would use a GET request to the QRS API with a filter, so the query is like "https://<server name>/qrs/task/full?xrfkey=0123456789abcdef& eq 'MyWorkApp1'"

But for some reason, this query does not work, giving the error:

"Cannot convert the constant value:"

On the other hand, if I use similar query to get apps based on owner name is returning valid results, the query is:

https://<server name>/qrs/app/full?xrfkey=asdfghjklzxcvbnm& eq 'myemail@domain'

Why one is returning results while the other gives errors?

Thanks a lot!

I have solved the problem myself, two points to notice:

- I need to use reloadtask as the endpoint not task

- If I need to filter based on, there should not be quotes around the GUID

The query that works for me now is:

https://<server name>/qrs/reloadtask/full?xrfkey=0123456789abcdef& eq <GUID>

Hope this will help anyone who has the same problem.

By any chance, does anyone know why using task as endpoint won't work?

mengyi.yuan Qlik has 2 types of tasks

  1. User synchronization
  2. Reload task.

Since you want to fetch reload task you should use /qrs/reloadtask/full endpoint in particular. Task may or may not have app association. Hence the filter is not allowed by app name/id.

Note :  If you feel this is the right answer please mark as Correct answer.
