    Is there an NPrinting API command line client?

    Kevin Pinto

      We have NPrinting 17.4.1 (June 2017) and the API looks good.  We want to use it to trigger an NPrinting task after the source dashboard has been reloaded in Publisher.


      Is there a Windows command line client for the NPrinting API, for at least the TaskExecutions?


      Qlik NPrinting API


      If not, I can write my own, but would prefer to not reinvent the wheel.

          Hi Kevin,


          I'm writing the command line client now and I'm troubled by NTLM token, I would like to ask if you have written this client and have solved the problem?


          In the official document, I noticed that there was a sentence like this:

          Javascript clients must pass the NTLM token using XHR credentials.


          I don't know how to implement it in my code... Looking forward to your reply.


          Thanks & Regards,

              Sorry, I haven't been able to do any work on this.  I wish Qlik would provide a simple command line client to automate basic tasks, including starting a task.

                I'm not a developer, so I asked the help of a colleague here who suggest:


                It depends on the library you want to use. For example, if you use jquery, you need only to add the parameter xhrFields.withCredentials to the call.

                Code sample:


                   type: "GET",

                   url: service_url,

                   dataType: "json",

                   xhrFields: {

                       withCredentials: true


                   error: function(XMLHttpRequest, textStatus, errorThrown) { ajaxError(XMLHttpRequest, textStatus, errorThrown); },

                   success: function(json) { DoSomething(json); }




                Best Regards,
