I am a complete newbie to rest connections. Have read a lot of the documentation over the last 2 days but still can't make a connection.
The system I am trying to create an API connection with is simpro. Here is a link to their documentation - http://developer.simprogroup.com/apidoc/?page=b0d64c044a432c8e0f9f01e0641d5596
Have created an API application in SimPro but I am stumped as to where to put the authorisation key info when making the rest connection in QlikSense Cloud... Where does this information below go???
Option 1: Resource Owner CredentialsToken URL: https://totalfitouts.simprosuite.com/oauth2/token
client_id: XXXXXclient_secret: XXXXXgrant_type: XXXXX
Option 2: Authorisation CodeAuthentication URL: https://totalfitouts.simprosuite.com/oauth2/login?client_id=XXXXXXRedirect URL: /oauth2/accessCodeToken URL: https://totalfitouts.simprosuite.com/oauth2/token
client_id: XXXXXXXclient_secret: XXXXXXgrant_type: authorization_code
Thanks so much for any and all assistance 🙂
Authentication is passed through the Query Headers. Check out this post on the SimPRO site regarding Authentication.
Also, here is a good video where you can see the headers in action though it's connecting to Dropbox. Here is another example that uses headers connecting to Survey Monkey.
