- Is it possible to execute a REST web service call from a Qlik Sense application ?
- In other words, even though I design an ETL load script to pre-fetch 99% of all the data I will need in an application, is it possible to access a small bit of data "live" while the application is running (ex: fetch weather data at a certain ad-hoc interval) ?
- I have checked out the "Direct Discovery" feature here, but it seems to be mostly geared for Big Data Sources. Is this a correct assumption ?
I have been toying with the idea of creating a MashUp that gets all its historical data, up to close of play yesterday from a standard qvf data source via hypercubes. But getting today's up to date data direct from the source database.
You could do the same with your rest api weather data.
This would have the overhead of writing a MashUp though.
