This video will demonstrate how to install Qlik CLI, a tool to make API calls to Qlik Sense.
It allows you to perform most of the same configuration changes that can be done in the QMC,
but via commands in PowerShell instead.
The Qlik CLI installer can be downloaded from GitHub. The link is below.
You’ll need to run the installation command from PowerShell 4.0 or newer.
The commands can be found on GitHub along with the installer.
First, download the installer files from here.
They will need to be unzipped to this folder under Program Files, Windows PowerShell, Modules.
Next, Open the PowerShell console with Administrator rights.
The first command is to Set the Execution Policy.
Next, be sure to run the install commands from the Qlik CLI folder.
And run the list of commands as documented to import the Qlik CLI module
Yes to all.
The installation has completed.
To verify the installation was successful, from the View menu, set PowerShell to Show Command Add-ons.
