Qlik Sense Backend API reference

The Qlik SenseBackend API consists of a number of methods, and is used for communicating with the Qlik Sense Engine. It provides Helper functions for Engine calls and access to Engine data. Available for extensions as this.backendApi.

In short terms, the Backend API is a wrapper around some of the Qlik Engine API methods but with the difference that the Backend API is aware of the context, that is the current web socket connection and the Qlik Sense app.

Example

this.backendApi.eachDataRow(function(rownum, row) { ..... });
