How do i can qlik from outside

Hello,

I am a Java developer and i have no knowledge of Qlik. My current problem is to trigger a batch process on windows server  from a remote Unix which in turn generates the Qlik reports ( which is deployed on AWS).

Instead of triggering a Windows Batch file which is on EC2( Where Qlik is deployed), is there a Rest call i can make to Qlik to generate reports?

Thank you,

Jason.

Hi,

I don't know if this is what you are after, but you can reload a Qlik Sense app with the call /qrs/app/{id}/reload, documentation here


Getting started info here


Hope this helps

In QlikView you can use the QMS API to trigger a task:

Using EDX in QlikView 11 - basic example

Last time I implemented this in Java, it was a challenge because the call has to be impersonating a widows account with the appropriate permissions and I was running on a non-windows platform.  I worked around this problem by installing the "EDXWrapper" webservice from here CodePlex Archive and calling that service from my java code.

I've heard from others that it's possible to do the windows impersonation thing directly from java but I don't have an example.
