    REST connection in Sense Cloud

    Aki Riisiö

      Hello,

       

      I have few questions about the REST connection in Sense cloud.

       

      1) When I am trying to follow the examples in the documentation, such as connecting to google maps API, I am receiving an error:

      "An error occurred
      Access is denied"

       

      The endpoint I am using does not require any credentials. I can access it from web browser without an issue.

      This is the URL:

      http://dev.markitondemand.com/MODApis/Api/v2/Quote?symbol=UPS

      I moved the query parameters from the URL to the fields in the REST connection setup.

       

      EDIT*** Seems I copied the wrong URL. However, this URL was from the tutorial, which I also tried. Same error.

       

      I also had issues selecting the data connection in the Sense Cloud. The REST connector was not visible by default in the "Add data" menu, but I was able to search it. At first I couldn't click the REST connection option, but after few tries I somehow managed to do it. But after that, the error occurred.

       

      2) Is it possible to set up a REST API IN the Qlik Sense cloud? I need to be able to set up a REST API to which I can post data. Short description of the case:

       

      I have system A which sends data to system C. In between, there's a system B which modifies and translates the data being sent. I want to collect this data by sending the data from system B to Qlik whenever something is triggered in B.
      The way this needs to be done is via REST. I need to build a REST where system B can send the data.

      So am I able to set up a REST in Qlik Cloud?
      OR
      Do I need to set up a separate server with REST where I can post the data from system B? Of course, this REST can also be used to GET data from Qlik...

       

      Best regards, Aki Riisiö
