API Updates - Deprecation of /v1/automations/settings

This changelog provides 60 days notice of deprecation and removal of the /v1/automations/settings endpoints.

These endpoints turn on and off Qlik Application Automation on a tenant, and this capability was superceeded by the addition in July 2023 of a new role, Automation Creator. This new role provides much greater flexibility in who can use automations, including at tenant, group, and user level.

For more information on Qlik's API policies, please refer to the API policy page.

Migrating to use the automation creator role

To provide all users in the tenant with access to create and run automations, you must add the AutomationCreator role to the Everyone group.

Assuming the Everyone group already had the PrivateAnalyticsContentCreator role assigned, you would send a request to replace the assignedRoles with the new list of PrivateAnalyticsContentCreator and AutomationCreator:

curl -L -X PATCH "https://<TENANT>/api/v1/groups/000000000000000000000001" ^
-H "Authorization: Bearer <ACCESS_TOKEN>" ^
-H "Content-type: application/json" ^
-H "Accept: application/json" ^
-d "[{\"op\": \"replace\", \"path\": \"/assignedRoles\", \"value\": [{\"name\": \"PrivateAnalyticsContentCreator\"}, {\"name\": \"SharedSpaceCreator\"}]}]"

If successful, an empty response with an http 204 code is returned.

In a similar way, you can also assign access to groups from your Identity Provider, or to individual users.
