REST connection fails


I have a problem connection with REST to a web API hosted by a ITSM system. I can make REST connections through other tools (Powershell using Invoke-RestMethod, and Advanced REST Client) and extract the data, but when setting this up with Qlik Sense Desktop, it fails:

Load Statement

LIB CONNECT TO 'NilexTest-GetEntityListByQuery';











FROM "Data" FK "__FK_Data")

FROM JSON (wrap on) "root" PK "__KEY_root";


LOAD [Id] AS [Id],

[Type] AS [Type],

[CreatedDate] AS [CreatedDate],

[EntityType] AS [EntityType],

[Type.Id] AS [Type.Id],

[__FK_Data] AS [__KEY_root]

RESIDENT RestConnectorMasterTable

WHERE NOT IsNull([__FK_Data]);

DROP TABLE RestConnectorMasterTable;

From the error log:

Error: QVX_UNEXPECTED_END_OF_DATA: HTTP protocol error 400 (Bad Request):

2017-12-21 16:47:00      {"Data":null,"Errors":[{"Message":"Invalid json: 'Error reading JObject from JsonReader. Current JsonReader item is not an object: String.

I can browse and select the data, so the connection is working up until I press Load Data, and the error above appears.


I have seen other community discussions regarding similar issues, but my Sense scripting skills are limited so I haven't been able to transform them successfully to match my needs.

REST CONNECTOR, Override request body

Can anyone assist in this issue?

Re: REST connection fails

Are you selecting all the tables while loading the data?

Or It may be due rest connectors details ....
