We're facing a problem with Qlik Sense On-Demand NPrinting Report. As we all know, with NPrinting, we can deliver reports at scheduled times, but we should be able to drive NPrinting through events, except for time. Below are our project's background and demands:
We have to generate Qlik Sense reports every day because our data is daily updated. (B)
We hope to automatically trigger the NPrinting distribution after the report is generated. (D)
The solution we can think of now is to automatically capture Qlik Sense reports generation status, send to NPrinting and start delivering. How can we achieve this? Thanks.
PS: We found a extension which can add a button in the Qlik Sense(Qlik Branch), when we click the button, it can generate a report on NPrinting Server and you can download it. Shall we trigger NPrinting automatically instead of click a button? Thanks.
When I was test the API in postman, I get 401 Unauauthorized error as below:
It's still wrong after replacing the hostname with IP address:
When I try to reload metadata in NPrinting, it could not get any response:
At this point I think maybe I should replace the hostname/ip with NPrinting's, so I get below errors:
Also I have a question about the 'v1' in the picture above, is it a app name or a standard writing?
I'm sorry to ask so many questions because I'm really not familiar with QRS REST API, even I don't know why we can connect to NPrinting with Qlik Sense API, it's really kind of you if you answer my questions, thanks a lot!
