QlikSense - how to set an initial selection in the URL?

HI all!

Just scanning over the documentation, but I can't find anything about handing over a simple selection to a QlikSense app/sheet.

I searching for something similar we had with the QlikViewAJAX Client:

http://demo.qlikview.com/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc.htm?document=QT%20Sales%20demo%20YTD.qvw&select=LB1462,Ge...

For example, when I point from my webpplication to the following QlikSenseSheet: Qlik Sense I want to set the "Region"-Listbox to the value "Central".

If this is not possible right now, I'm happy about every hint how to do this; I don't want to go for a mashup; So it would be nice if I can reuse the QlikSense-Client in an IFRAME and just handing over intial selections.

Thx,

Roland

Re: QlikSense - how to set an initial selection in the URL?

Hi Roland,

If I understand what you are asking for correctly, yes it is possible...

You can use the single configurator to get your base URL for the Qlik Sense item (sheet, visualization or snapshot). Then you add the &Select=<Field>,<Value> option to the URL.

For example, a URL can look like this (where <servername> is the path to your server):
https://sense-demo.qlik.com/single/?appid=133dab5d-8f56-4d40-b3e0-a6b401391bde&obj=hRZaKk&select=Yea...

This example (above) points to the Open & Resolved Cases Over Time vizualisation in the Helpdesk Management app on the demo site with the Year 2012 selected.

You can find more information around this on http://help.qlik.com/sense/en-us/developer/#../Subsystems/Workbench/Content/BuildingWebsites/Overvie...
As well, make sure to check the links listed in the See also section at the bottom of the help topic.

You access Single  configurator via:

Qlik Sense: https://[ServerName]/single

Qlik Sense Desktop: http://localhost:4848/single

Best regards,
Thomas

Hi there,

Any idea why the select function doesn't work at the end of my url?

Many thanks!

Re: QlikSense - how to set an initial selection in the URL?

Hi Oxenby,

The usecase it to open the Qliksense dashboard with preselected options in a separate browser window by given a hyperlink from another webpage. How can this be done?

Thanks in advance,

Bump.

Were you ever able to get this working? I'm only able to do this using the Single method. I would ideally like to put the user in the full app with parameters set.

Re: QlikSense - how to set an initial selection in the URL?

Old question but it has many views so it might be relevant with an answer nontheless:

The following link shows how to do it: App Integration API ‒ Qlik Sense

Example links to a demo:

Select Year = 2014: Append select/Year/[2014] to the URL

https://sense-demo.qlik.com/sense/app/9a2471a4-3fab-48bb-9b39-d55e47ca2471/sheet/LSZHpfJ/state/analy...

Select Year = 2014 and Customer = Accrue: Append select/Year/[2014]/select/Customer/Accrue to the URL

https://sense-demo.qlik.com/sense/app/9a2471a4-3fab-48bb-9b39-d55e47ca2471/sheet/LSZHpfJ/state/analy...

Please not that it does not work with a capital 'S' in "select" and that there is one "select" per field.

I hope it helps somebody! :-)
