Q: How much does qlik-cli cost? Is consulting required? A: qlik-cli is provided free of charge, and supported by Qlik Support. May you find any defect in the tool, please feel free to report it to Qlik Support.
Q: How does the qlik-cli authenticate with the cloud APIs? A: It will use an API key to authenticate. Once you have installed qlik-cli, run the command "qlik context init" and input your tenant URL and the API key.
Q: If I'm authenticating with an API key, how do I access a CSRF token? A: CSRF token is only needed for requests that do alter data (POST/PUT/DELETE) and for code running in a browser. Currently, we do not support the use of API keys for authentication for applications running in a browser. When it comes to fetching the CSRF token for when you use interactive login, an example can be found at the link below. https://github.com/qlik-oss/web-integration-examples/blob/master/app-reloader/src/axios.js#L23 However, most of the time the Qlik APIs will take care of that and the developer will not need to care about it.
