Certificate for the local machine



Please tell me what computer name should be specified in the Machine name box field when I export certificates for the local machine?

I am writing a telegram bot that works with the QRS API and uses authorization through my user. But when the bot works through my user, I can't use Qlik Sense because of the closed socket.

I found information that you can log in using a certificate - https://support.qlik.com/articles/000061628

I also found information on how to export certificates via QMC - https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/June2019/Subsystems/ManagementConsole/Content/Sense_QMC/export-cer...

I have no idea what name to specify for my personal computer.

I will be grateful for any help!

The name used on the exported certificate is irrelevant as you need to use the QlikClient certificate to communicate with the QRS API, not the Server Certificate.

Marc, thank's.

It turns out that exporting certificates via qmc will not help for integration? How do I get a certificate for integration with the QRS API?


When you export the certificates from the QMC they are generated in a directory on the Qlik Sense server.  C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Repository\Exported Certificates\<host name entered>

Within this folder you will find certificates, depending on if you chose pem or windows format.

If Pem:  Root Certificate (Public cert pem only), Server Certificate (Public cert & Private key pems' issued to <host name entered>), Client Certificate (Public cert & Private key pems')

If windows format, Root.cer, Server.pfx & Client.pfx

When connecting to the QRS APIs you need to use the Client certificate (pems' or pfx depending on the requirements of what you are using to make the API calls)

When using certificates you will need to connect to the QRS on port 4242.
