Extract data from Twitter

Hello,

I am trying to access data from twitter using REST API and following this help link : https://help.qlik.com/en-US/connectors/Subsystems/REST_connector_help/Content/Create-REST-connection...

how can i generate Authorization value in Query header. If i use just consumer_key, it is throwing error message. Is there any Twitter API playground/console to generate this value ?

What should be included in this part from consumer key Capture.PNG

Cheers,

RK

Re: Extract data from Twitter

You can use the native connection. See the documentation.

It is only you to have a twitter account and at the moment of creating the connection it will ask you to log in and it will give you a key for authentication.

Re: Extract data from Twitter

We would like to use REST API instead of Qlik Web connector for Twitter.
