Does QlikView have an API that can be used to trigger an app reload?

I'm setting up a python script that will do some ETL to prepare a data set for use in a Qlik app.

 

I'd like to automate this so that when the python program completes and the data is ready, it reaches out to the qlik server and triggers a refresh of the related qlik app.

Is this possible? If so, can you point me in the right direction to get started?

 

Thanks

There are different possibilities:

1. To start a QV task from Python you can use EDX (look for qmsedx.exe in the community).

2. Create a task for the Python script in the QMC: System -> Supporting Tasks -> External Program.

3. Start the Python script in the QV script with the "Execute" command.
