How to connect to engine api to get the data

Hi All,

I have requirement where I want to extract the list of measure from Qlik sense app. I know it is possible by connecting to qlik engine api, but I am not sure how do I do it. I have a code as well but don't know how to run and get the data. I am new to this api world. If someone can help me with step by step guide it will be helpful

From what kind of environment do you want to connect? Is it from a webpage? If so, then you might want to start here:

If you want to build a stand alone tool, then you might want to have a look here:

No, the engine service uses websockets for communication.

You can find examples for how to connect from C# in this repository:

The exact mechanism to use depends on the configuration of the Qlik Sense installation you are connecting to, but typically you can use your Windows credentials to connect. In that case this is the project you should look at:
