QS API: Get tasks dependency

Hi all,

im looking for a method that can return tasks dependency info. For example: "Task2" is started after "Task1" is successfully completed.

At the moment the only methods ,that i can see, that return some info about the tasks are "Get all as full" and "Get all as condensed". Both methods are returning decent details about the tasks but the info im after is missing.

Is this info is available under some other method(s) or is missing at the moment in the API?

Thanks!

Stefan

Re: QS API: Get tasks dependency

Hello Stefan,

You can find what you are looking for at:

/qrs/compositeevent/full

(listed at All paths ‒ Qlik Sense Developers)

The "reloadTask" is the triggered task while you can look in the "compositeRules" for the triggering task(s). Best of luck!

Re: QS API: Get tasks dependency

The path /qrs/compositeevent/full is used on version 1.0 and I think it´s deprecated since version 2.0.

Here is the list of the most recent endpoint (November 2017) to retrieve entities information  Working with entities ‒ Qlik Sense Developers .

Re: QS API: Get tasks dependency

Hello Pablo!

The endpoint "/qrs/compositeevent/full" is included in the list of endpoints listed by "/qrs/about/api/description" (documented at About API: Get description ‒ Qlik Sense Developers) in the latest release. It is also referenced in the document How to update a composite event trigger using the QRS API which was posted in June 2017.

May I ask if there is anything specific beyond the removal of the full list of paths from the API documentation (which I suspect can be attributed to it being available using the above API endpoint) which gives the impression that this endpoint is deprecated?

HI Martin,

That was my impression, because there is no direct reference in the latest documentation. 

Maybe this endpoint is not categorized as LOCKED and is not reliable yet and could break in future releases.

Re: QS API: Get tasks dependency

Hi Martin,

  I ran a query using the endpoint /qrs/compositeevent/full on a Qlik Sense September / 2017 and it returns a lot of data.

Several tables were generated when using the qlik sense REST connector.

  Now I'm trying to figure out how the relations works.

Thanks !

Re: QS API: Get tasks dependency

Hello Pablo,

I've now done a bit of further digging and I can tell you that:

  • That endpoint is Locked
  • Better documentation of the stability of all the endpoints listed in /qrs/about/api/description and elsewhere is forthcoming
  • While Qlik API Insights doesn't have that information right now it might still be interesting if anyone has missed it

Regards and Good Luck!
