QlikView REST API Connection using a Postman connection

I have a Postman connection that I would like to make in QlikView, but not sure how to make it work.  I’m being required to use OAuth2 authentication which is not a selection in the QVRestConnector Authentication method. Should I use basic? If so what is username. I assume my token is password.

Using QlikView 11.2 SR5 and QVRestConnector 1.2.  Download site did not have QVRestConnector 1.0 that is needed for my version of QlikView. Is 1.2 backwards compatible?

I will get to the remaining Postman request parameters, but want to make sure I can at least login to the data source first with the software I have.

Please advise.

Re: QlikView REST API Connection using a Postman connection

Hi Pkostick,

OAuth2 and basic (username-password) are two different authentication schema. Token in OAuth2 is not equivalent to password in basic authentication, as the underlying mechanisms are completely different.

Qlik REST connector does not yet support OAuth authentication (see https://support.qlik.com/articles/00004730).

Compatibility between REST connector and QlikView versions are documented in the help site at https://help.qlik.com/en-US/connectors/Subsystems/REST_connector_help/Content/Connectors_REST/REST-c...
