Import app example

Hey Everyone,

I'm trying to get started working with the Qlik API. I'm connecting using curl (through a groovy script).

So far I was able to run GET requests, but I've been running into issues when try to do an import through the API.

First I got an issue with the content type. The documentation says it should be a string but I got errors saying it expects a application/json and not text/plain

Now I'm having issues parsing the properties.

Can some give me an example of importing an app using the API?

Thanks for your reply, but I figured it out.

Looks like the main issue was that the call needs to get a normal string, but is also expecting "Content-Type: application/json". Took me a lot of trial and error to get it right, but it works now.

curl -X POST

--cert "{certificate_location}"

--key "{certificate_key_location}"

-k

{server_url}/qrs/app/import?xrfkey=0123456789abcdef&name=test_import

--header "x-qlik-xrfkey: 0123456789abcdef"

--header "X-Qlik-User: UserDirectory=internal;UserId=sa_repository"

--header "Content-Type: application/json"

-d 'test.qvf'
