    Stream and Custom Properties

    Suparjito Teo

      Hi,

       

      Is there a way to create Stream and Custom Properties in QMC through APIs?

      I am currently using .NET SDK. But I cannot find a way to do this.

       

      Is there a possibility to do that at all?

      Any help is appreciated

       

      Thanks.

          I don't know the answer.  But I am curious as to why you would want to do that?

           

          Are you just trying to avoid using the QMC GUI to add this data?

           

          The Custom Properties really come into play with the security rules.  So if you were able to add a new one through the API you would then also need a way to update the security rule that uses it.

           

          Just curious.  Always trying to learn new ways to do things.

              Hi Mark,

               

              Thanks for your reply.

              We have an idea. We want to build a platform and use Qlik at the same time.

               

              The idea is roughly like this:

              When user register to our platform, what we think is our platform should create a new stream for them. So their data will not shared with other users (each user will have their own stream).

              As for Custom Properties, we want to be able to create them dynamically through our platform so we can decide which role can access to certain app in certain stream.

               

              So for your question "Are you just trying to avoid using the QMC GUI to add this data?"

              the answer is yes because any user can register to our platform and we think adding them manually in QMC GUI everytime a new user register is not a good way.

               

              Currently we are exploring .NET SDK but we were not be able to achieve this.

              Any suggestion or advice?

              Any kind of help is appreciated.

               

              Thanks

              This is not my expertise area, but you could take a look into the Qlik Sense QMC Utilities  project at Qlik Branch.

              Qlik Branch

              It does utilize the APIs to handle/modify rules and custom properties.
