Starting to work with the QlikView Management Services API (QMS API), Some Useful Resources (QlikTip #51)

The QlikView Management Services API (QMS API) is an officially supported web service based API to get access to functionality behind QlikView Server and QlikView Publisher. Using the QMS API everything which can be done within the QlikView Mangement Console (QMC) can also be accomplished programmatically (and much more!!!).

In my opinion the QMS API is the most beautiful API QlikView offers (probably because it is one of the newest ones …). But at the same time I only see a few partner solutions available using the possibilities of this API. Really wondering why!

While I am using the QMS API quite often, to be honest I have never found the time to write some very basic articles explaining the QMS API.

Basic Introduction

Fortunately my colleague Joe Bickley has found the time to write some excellent articles which are perfect starting to work with the QMS API:

    Hi Stefan,

    thanks a lot for the overview. When you are saying that “Using the QMS API everything which can be done within the QlikView Mangement Console (QMC) can also be accomplished programmatically” do you literary mean everything? As in every checkbox available in the QMC may be selected/deselected etc.?

    Thanks,
    Martin

      Yes *nearly* everything, I have never tested if there is a 100% match between the API and the user interface, but I did never run into troubles to find a specific functionality within the QMS API

      What exactly are you searching for?

      Regards
      Stefan

        e.g. adding a Task. Until now, I got the impression that the QMSAPI mainly consumes the QMC.

          Sorry – just figured the SaveDocumentTask Method should do the trick.
