Creating a Qlik Sense Desktop Application Using Python

Hi,

I have a python script that generates the required data in an excel file and then further I manually open Qlik Sense Desktop, Connect to the generated excel sheet and create the visualizations. I want to automate the whole process. So is there any API which I can use to create an application, connect to the data and then create my required visualizations all in python itself?

Hello,

You would need to use the Qlik Engine API in order to create visualization.

The documentation can be found here

It is easier to manipulate with javascript using enigma.js (https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense-developer/September2019/Subsystems/APIs/Content/Sense_ClientAPIs/e...), but also possible with python, there is a simple example here to get started: https://support.qlik.com/articles/000063003
