Qlik Sense app url integration

Hi All,

It's very interesting and intuitive the single API reference that allows to integrate single object easily through an URL. But is it possible to integrate a complete sheet or complete app through URL passing a predefined selection?

Basically, I would like to reach a Qlik Sense app with a predefined selection on filters if possible through an url parameter, do you think is it possible?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Matteo

Re: Qlik Sense app url integration

Hi Matteo,

What you are referring here is Document chaining and is not fully available in Qliksense yet.

You can navigate to a particular sheet using a URL but not with the selection parameters yet. I am sure this would be available soon. As of now, you can default a selection in an app using the script to an extent as mentioned in this discussion  Starting with a default filter

Check this extension as well.

Hi Matteo,

In single object API you can use a sheet and parse predefined selections.

You should check : http://help.qlik.com/sense/2.1/en-us/developer/#../Subsystems/Mashups/Content/SingleIntegration/work... and http://help.qlik.com/sense/2.1/en-us/developer/#../Subsystems/Dev-Hub/Content/Howtos/single-configur... .

So in you case it will be:

https://<ServerName>/single/?appid=ccc53d3a-77c2-48a4-9f5a-f7aa84d82f19&sheet=1ff88551-9c4d-41e0-b790-37f4c11d3df8&select=clearall&select=field,value1,value2

here is a small guide on how to define preselected values with Single Configurator: http://help.qlik.com/sense/2.1/en-us/developer/#../Subsystems/Dev-Hub/Content/Howtos/single-configur...

Parsing selections in an app url is not implemented (yet), but surely coming soon.

I hope it helps,

regards,

Re: Qlik Sense app url integration

single configurator calls an object not an app. an object can be a sheet, (but not the app). If you want to drill to a full app with multiple sheets,you may have to rework the sheet to sheet navigation (using URLs)

Take a look at Emulating document chaining in Qlik Sense

It demonstrated one possible implementation of such thing.

Re: Qlik Sense app url integration

Hi Vadim,

I noticed that in the your post about document chaining ,your qliksense app URL is different .

localhost:4848/sense/app/appname

whereas the URL which I can see when I open any app in my qliksense server is   servername/sense/app/d5df98b2-36b1-4181-b41d-8101c5f85c98.

How can I make the URL use an app name instead of ticket ID?

Thanks,

Anitha

Re: Qlik Sense app url integration

Hi, Anita.

In my post I use Qlik Sense Desktop, so URL look that way.

With Qlik Sense server first part of URL will look different, as you wrote. Main difference is that instead of

Application name Qlik Sense server expect application id in URL. That cannot be changed.

So you should modify first part of URL for your environment,
