OAuth 2.0 REST Refresh Token

Hi everyone. I'm wondering if anyone has been able to get a permanent REST Connection set up using OAuth 2.0 authentication.

The Qlik REST Connector documentation ( gives us the ability to set up a transient connection, as OAuth 2.0 session tokens cannot live longer than 4 hours (Session and campaign timeout handling - Analytics Help), but this requires the connector to be recreated (or at the least manually modified) every T <= 4 hours. OAuth 2.0 provides for this functionality through the use of OAuth 2.0 Refresh Tokens (section 1.5 of RFC 6749 - The OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework).

I'm new to Qlik, currently using Qlik Desktop, and am hoping that someone has been able to get a more permanent connector set up through the use of these refresh tokens. Thanks for reading.

Hey Stefan, I'm curious if you have made any headway with this issue. I followed a link to this post (Google Analytics with rest connector | Qlik Community). I am experiencing the same issues you are in regards to the data parsing. Everything shows up as a single column.

I'd be curious to see if you've sorted this, how you did it and if you could assist me. Every response I've gotten has been essentially "pay for it". I agree that we shouldn't throw money at something that is already available for free.
