How to loading by REST API through the authentication service?

We have a need to interact with the target system by REST API. But there is an authentication service in between. Is it possible to do the following synchronously in query language : call REST, get result, use the result to make a URL address for following REST request?

Hello @VitV 

If you mean when loading data in a script with the Qlik REST Connector, then I do not think that it's possible, it doesn't support this type of authentication flow, only the one listed in the REST Connector options.

Can you elaborate what you're after? Is this an Oauth or Oauth-similar flow where the requests are authorized by a temporary token which requires a POST to retrieve?

Or are you, for example, retrieving a list of things and want to iterate over the list in subsequent calls?
