Qlik Application Automation - Create automatic data connections

Hi Team,

At this moment, if we are setting up a new environment for a customer, we have to create all different kind of spaces (Development, Acceptance, Production etc.). I can do this automatically with an automation, but I still have to manually add all data connections. It would be easy to have a block with not only 'list data connections', but also 'create data connection'.

Hi Jordy

 

Thanks for sharing. 

Your questions translates to the ability to create data sources through an API, after which we can add this as blocks. This is a known requirement and we are investigating. We need to understand how we can add credentials in a secure way and also support oauth2 authentication. 

Kind regards,
