Connect Non Public files from QlikSense to AWS S3 bucket using REST API

Dear Friends,

We have private csv file in AWS S3 bucket and I am trying to connect the file through QlikSense Rest API. I can successfully connect the public file but it getting failed to connect private file.

Below error when trying to connect private csv file:

"HTTP protocol error 403 (Forbidden): The server refused to fulfill the request."

Can anyone help me out with possible ways, I can connect private csv file in AWS S3 bucket.

Thanks

Pratul

Re: Connect Non Public files from QlikSense to AWS S3 bucket using REST API

It is much simpler to use the Qlik Web Connector for Amazon S3. With the Qlik REST Connector you will have to implement the authentication part of the S3 interaction yourself - quite complicated.

Here you can find more information about the Qlik Web Connector for Amazon S3:
