Qliksense Rest connector

Hi ,

I have created a variable in which I am passing a column values , I need to pass this variable to Rest connector connection which I have created. So, that when this variable passes there the Rest Connector should get trigger.

It is a little bit unclear what you mean. Is it users updating the variable with the column values? When you say you want to trigger the rest connector - do you mean that you want to initiate a reload of the app? Users can't update variables that are used in the script (where you would pass something on to the rest connector), but you could have some external file, etc where that the users update. To trigger a reload you can use the new function with a button or a button with a API call.

can you give more clarity on how to use  a button with a API call.

You can set up some kind of web server that takes an HTTP GET call (when clicking on the button) and calls the Sense API to reload an app.
