QLIK API Urls

Could you please finally update the URLS on the Qlik Dev API pages.

They link to old archived documentation on the Qlik help site instead of the new pages on the Qlik Dev site. This has been the case for years now. Makes it a very frustrating process of finding stuff on the dev site.

Hi @Eugene_Sleator 

I Don't think you understand the issue.

For example when going to libraries and tools -> Enigma.js https://qlik.dev/libraries-and-tools/enigmajs

There is no obvious option to go to the reference of the API.

There should be a link to for example: https://qlik.dev/apis/json-rpc/qix/doc

As this is the place for the reference for example:

When going to: https://qlik.dev/apis/javascript/enigmajs

You do not get the full reference of the API you can use.

You will get this, which is useful indeed but not useful at all to get any data from the Engine.

The Qix documentation does show what is needed. But is not easily findable if you do not know what you are looking for.

Hope you understand the issue now.

Hi @Bram_Knitco have looked into the links referenced. The are all overviews of available classes. The redirections are correct as the Dev site does not contain this information.  The dev site provides information about the API endpoints and the methods available. If you feel the class information should be moved to the Dev site. You make this suggestion in the Ideation  area of the community forum. 

Thank you

HI @Bram_Knitco  I would suggest posting this in the ideation part of the community. This is not really the best place to post. As it is not going to be resolved via a general question posted here.

Ok, I will not do that.

Have a nice day.
