How to authenticate to QlikSense API

Hi Everyone,

I am new to QlikSense and looking forward to use the QRS API to do certain task which i will explain later in this thread. I have a python script which grabs data from our corporate LDAP and add a user to in the Active Directory where QlikSense installed. QlikSense thus use this user to authenticate to dashboards. But we have setup custom properties for users to do a segregation on what type of dashboards he can view. What i am looking for here is to use the QlikSense API from programming language like Python and help achieve this so that i do not have to go and add that user to that group(Custom Property list) manually. I have read a lot about it and i am not able to figure out how to do it.

Also to note here that i want this to be remotely executed.

Can someone please help me on this. The API documentation looks really complicated to me.

So the ask is for pointers on QRS API calls using Python? Here's a solid project to review: https://github.com/clintcarr/qrspy
