Using API to retrieve data from Qlik Sense Application
I have a customer who wants Qlik Sense application data to be exported automatically to a 3rd party system.
I'm not familiar with Qlik APIs but I found out about HyperCube definition which provides extractions of the data loaded for apps.
I created a hyperCube using the mashup editor and it actually working.
My question is what's next? Is it enough to send the customer the js code from the Mashup Editor if he wants to embed it in his system? I guess that in order to run the script (from another server in the same network) there should be a user authentication.
Re: Using API to retrieve data from Qlik Sense Application
Usually, you can use the REST connector to connect and retrieve data from the API and the data retrieved depend on the API response(JSON, CSV, XML), then Qlik builds the keys and load structure.
And the API gives you a set of data for 1 day or more, what i suggest is if you give him the script with incremental load or with a procedure to keep fetch data to avoid any next inquiry from the customer side.
5. in the Header Parameter you will provide the Authentication "Brear Token key " and if there any parameter you have to include it in the header and this is can be declared from the API documentation of the web site that you are trying to connect.
then test and connect
after that when you select to load table it will come with the table structure as per your API.
