Getting Started with QRS API

Hi Guys

I am wanting to learn how to talk to the QlikSense Repository API to automate some tasks from the QMC, specifically duplicating apps and removing sheets i.e. like a loop and reduce.

I've connected to my Qlik Sense Enterprise server via Postman, doing a GET command as per below:

However, alot of the guides etc online talk about setting up a virtual proxy, and connecting via the Proxy API and passing in Windows authentication? I think I've setup my machine to communicate via certificates, as I exported these from the QMC and imported into Current User > Personal

TL;DR - basically, I am not sure what I am doing. Can anyone point me towards a decent / modern tutorial in talking to the QRS API, with view to automate tedious tasks. I am thinking of using a scripting language i.e. PowerShell or Python to script the tasks, but, I'm sort of struggling in what to do....

Not much of a tutorial, but I have this small library for helping you hook up to the QRS using C# if that is of interest to you:

It contains a couple of examples at this location:
