Extracting Data via API

Hello all,

We need to extract data via a self-developed API into QlikSense desktop.

The only thing that we have is the server URL and Methods that help us extract the needed data.


Can anyone help us? Using what connector ? or by what other way ?

Thanks,

Elio

Re: Extracting Data via API

You can use the Qlik REST Connector to pull data out of a REST API that you developed yourself.

This works equally well with Qlik Sense Desktop as with Qlik Sense Server.

If your API accepts GET-requests you can also do it with the "Webfile" approach not needing to install Qlik REST Connector.

Re: Extracting Data via API

We need to push data into Qlik Sense desktop.

The thing is that we have a server in another city that contains the data and a self-developed API. We also have the URL related to the server/API and that API Uses a POST method.

Do you think that the REST Connector would help us ?

Yes - the REST connector supports POST method.
