SaaS API updates to Apps and Users APIs

Engine REST API (Apps) updated with new attributes

The Engine REST API, aka Apps API, adds attributes for app name and description for POST and PUT request operations related to publishing and republishing Qlik Sense applications.

The new checkOriginAppId attribute is a true/false property validating that the source Qlik Sense application has the same Id as the originally published app.

"attributes": {
  "name": "string",
  "description": "string"
},
"checkOriginAppId": true

For more information, see the API reference for republishing a Qlik Sense application here.

Users API add attributes for user roles

As part of the ongoing work related to updates to users, groups, and roles in the Users API added additional properties for setting roles on users and new roles that may be applied to user records. While this feature is not accessible in product user interfaces, it does exist in the API. In addition, the Users API is public/stable.

For more information, see the API reference here.

SaaS API updates to Collections, Identity Providers, Reloads and more

Collections API adds new response information with app size metrics

Endpoints for the Collections API now include two new properties in the response object. appFile displays the size of an app on disk and appMemory shows the size of an app when it is loaded in memory. Both values are displayed in bytes and appear under the resourceSize property.

"appFile": {
    "description": "Size of the app on disk in bytes",
    "type": "number"
},
"appMemory": {
    "description": "Size of the app in memory in bytes",
    "type": "number"
}

Identity Providers V1 API released public/stable

The Identity Providers REST API is a Management API for creating and updating identity provider configurations in a tenant. For more information regarding the API, please review the API reference here.

Licenses API releases two public/stable, three public/experimental endpoints

The Licenses REST API is a Management API for assigning, changing, and removing license assignements from users in tenants.

This release includes two public/stable endpoints:

  • get license status
  • get license overview

and three public/experimental endpoints:

  • assign access to users
  • delete user license assignments
  • update user license assignments

Learn more about the API here.

Reloads API re-released public/stable

The Reloads API is now verified public/stable in Qlik's API governance system. The Reloads API was mistakenly set to public/stable in late 2020 after a breaking change was introduced in the code. Subsequently, the Reloads API was adjusted to public/experimental before the new year to indicate the correct status. The outstanding issues with the API have been addressed.

Temporary Contents API released public/stable

The Temporary Contents Service API is now public/stable in compliance with Qlik's API governance policy. The TCS is used by other services to provided temporary file storage for uploads to the system (for example through Qlik Data Transfer) and downloads from (for example image and sheet exports from Qlik Sense Client).
