Qlik Sense Simulating ODAG for Analyzer License

Hi, one of the extensions I'm have been developing has similar functionality to that of the ODAG Service, and we do so by creating an enigma session to the engine and doing what we need.

Now the problem I'm having is that the create (global.openDoc) and publish (doc.publish) don't work when a user with the Analyzer License tries to use the extension, only those with Professional License.

Is there a way to make this happen? Or are the API calls blocked if the User doesn't have permission?

Re: Qlik Sense Simulating ODAG for Analyzer License

I'm aware of the ODAGService but currently don't know how to use it. I'm trying to use the POST /links but don't know how to set the LinkAddPayload or how to send it.

Re: Qlik Sense Simulating ODAG for Analyzer License

I think I almost have it. But now I'm gettint this error.

rowEstRange.PNG

"Missing required app navigaiton link property rowEstRange", but I have it defined in the payload, maybe it's not well defined?

var copyURI = '/api/odag/v1/links';
var linkAddPayload = {
	name: 'ODAG API Test App ' + nowTime,
	selectionApp: '7b8286c1-5f5c-4759-998f-82185048b2c7',
	templateApp: 'f25cc3bd-8875-45b7-a5da-8228f12663c5',
	rowEstExpr: 'Sum(FLIGHT_COUNT)',
	properties: {
		rowEstRange : {
			context: '*',
			highBound: 100000
		},
		genAppLimit: {
			context: 'User_*',
			limit: 5
		}
	}
}
qlik.callRepository(copyURI, 'POST', linkAddPayload).success(function (reply) {
	console.log("Got reply from copy app:", reply);
})

Re: Qlik Sense Simulating ODAG for Analyzer License

So I figured the previous problem, I was missing the square brackets before defining the rowEstRange and genAppLimit.

So this:

rowEstRange : {
	context: '*',
	highBound: 100000
},
genAppLimit: {
	context: 'User_*',
	limit: 5
}

Becomes this:

rowEstRange : [{
	context: '*',
	highBound: 10000
}],
genAppLimit: [{
	context: 'User_*',
	limit: 5
}]

And with that I can successufly creat a link and see it was created with the call /api/odag/v1/links

 

Now onto calling the link to generate an app. I use the linkId from the previously made link and I make this call - /api/odag/v1/links/{linkId}/requests - and pass the following object:

var requestCreatePayload = {
	selectionApp: '7b8286c1-5f5c-4759-998f-82185048b2c7'
}

In the definition of the payload, there are two parameters that don't say they are optional nor they say they are required, and I don't know yet how to go about setting them and if they are indeed required. But just sending the selectionApp Id gives a POST 400 Bad Request error with no more information, so I don't know where to go from where to successfully generate the app.

Any help would be appreciated.
