How to delete a sheet via Qlik repository API using Postman Desktop
TheQlik Sense Repository Service(QRS) contains all data and configuration information for aQlik Sensesite. The data is normally added and updated using theQlik Management Console(QMC) or aQlik Senseclient, but it is also possible to communicate directly with theQRSusing its API. This enables the automation of a range of tasks, for example:
Start tasks from an external scheduling tool
Change license configurations
Extract data about the system
