NPrinting November 2017 - Connect using REST connector

Hello all,

I'm trying to retrieve data from NPrinting server using a REST connection. I've typed into google chrome the correct request and returned data without any problem. (I've used this URL: https://mynprintingserver:4993/api/v1/connections)

Buit when I use the QlikView REST connector using the same URL and providing the same user credentials it returns me the 403 error: Forbidden access. I don't know why this happens and why I can see all the data using google chrome but using the Qlik connector to connect to NPrinting I can't  get the data I need.

Anyone can help me please? I'm using QlikView 11,2 SR15 and REST connector 1.3.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi Jesus,

If you mean you want to use the standard Qlik REST connector in QlikView or Qlik Sense to interact with NPrinting, then:

1. You need to be on NPrinting version February 2018 (earlier versions had an issue that was fixed in this version)

2. Follow this excellent document (uses Qlik Sense but tested to work in QlikView as well): How to use Qlik NPrinting APIs inside a Qlik Sense load script

Hi,

Qlik NPrinting APIs are described in the help page https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/February2018/Content/Extending/Intro-Extending.htm.

With NPrinting API you can drive some NPrinting actions like run a task that distribute reports but you cannot obtain a data set directly. Data will be delivered inside reports.

Best Regards,
