Creating a connection to the Qlik Sense repository

I have a task where I need to create a drop down in a html file that will be placed on the Qlik Sense server. The drop down needs to contain a list of all the streams and update automatically if a new stream is added. I assume I need a connection to the repository but I am unsure how to create this.

Any idea's on how to go about creating the connection and implementing this?

Re: Creating a connection to the Qlik Sense repository

Hi,

You need the Repository API: Make a HTTP GET request to the endpoint /qrs/stream and you will get the list back.

If you are using the capability APIs (qlik.js) the is a helper method: callRepository

Re: Creating a connection to the Qlik Sense repository

Due to the security at my work, I can not download postman as instructed in the Repository API. Is there another way to be able to connect to the repository so I can get the Stream list in my drop down?

Long-term, the capability API style approach will be the one that you would want to use.

If you're purely testing the syntax of the API call you can use a litany of options:

Those tools won't be embeddable on the front end.

Make sense?

Hi,

You don't need Postman, just use the callRepository method.
