Qlik Engine API and exported file

Hi all,

I'm using the Engine Api, with websocket and the jwt authentication.

When I use the ExportData method on an object, I get the url of the exported file, but when I try to get this file through the "code"it returns the login page. If I try with the browser I can download the file.

Can I download the file through the websocket session, that is authenticated? Or another solution?

Thank You

S.

To do that, you'll need to pass the session token of the websocket as a cookie in your http request. Are you using .Net? In that case I can show you how to do it. In fact, there is another thread on that topic here:Using a Session Cookie with Repository API

If you're in the javascript world, then others are better suited to help you...

Unfortunately, you can't download that file through a websocket. You need to do an HTTP GET to download it.

Hi Øystein,

thank you for your answer.

But, I need to renew the auth to the https endpoint, or I can pass the session of the websocket

Thanks

Thank you for the hint

At the moment I'm working on a prototype with Python, but I take a look at the .net solution.
