How to fetch dimensions and measures data using Qlik Sense engine API?

Hi all,

I am currently exploring Qlik Sense Engine API to fetch data from application & my flow is,

1. OpenDoc method. I passed appId as qDocName & document got opened.

2. CreateSessionObject is to create dummy object for data fetch.

Here I got stuck what to do next?

Though I have dimensions and measures names. but I don't know how to use it to fetch the data.

Is above flow in right way? if no then please do suggest and provide steps or code to follow.

I want HyperCube which contains my dimensions & measures values.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Bhargav,

Is there a reason you must use the Engine API to do this?

Otherwise, have you looked at the documentation for create cube with the App API?



I have written a post on this here:

Note that you can use the mashup editor in dev-hub to help you with this. Hypercube format is the same whether you use Engine api or capabilities APIs.

If you prefer a video, there is one at youtube:

Hope this helps

Thanks for your response Jesper.

The reason to explore Engine API is to connecting qlik with python using websockets.

again awesome response Erik but is there any tutorial available so that i could interact with qlik sense using websockets in python?


Look at this python library:

Examples in the test folder.

Although the library is not maintained anymore it worked perfectly for me.
