Pay attention to copy/paste all the Auth token in the URL, I did the same and it worked.

For example : Create or Update sales force, send a teams message, etc.

There is a lot of use cases.

In the Start Block change the Run Mode from Manual to Triggered. 

You can now invoke the Automation with 2 different METHOD (GET and POST) both works. You can call them as action on the on-click on a button or as post processing of a previous elaboration step

@paulcalvet , We're doing some last minute polish to the core action button in the Qlik Sense client to enable you to select an automation directly from a property and send a bookmark. Be on the lookout for new content and instructions on how to trigger automations directly from an app.

Thanks Vincenzo, I copy the Get example and add it in the "Open a website or email"

When I click, I get this error message : 

{
    "message": "This action is unauthorized."
}

Hi all,

I´m trying to call an automation directly from the app, using the button chart. Does anyone know how to pass a current selection to the automation? 

The use case is to let the user choose invoices from a table and then call the automation to perform some action on this selected invoices.

Thanks a lot!

Hello,

So I think it's possible, maybe check in the Qlik video.
