Warning: BETA. This connector is a beta version.


The Qlik AYLIEN News connector uses the AYLIEN News API to gather data from news articles and load this information into your Qlik Sense app.

Note: The built-in web connectors are only available on SaaS editions of Qlik Sense.

Ways to access your data

To access your AYLIEN News data, you need to authenticate the connector with your AYLIEN News account credentials. After you create a new connection and select AYLIEN News as your data source, you need to enter the app id and app key credentials from your AYLIEN News account.

Creating a connection and selecting data

Loading data from tables

After you authenticate the connector with the app id and app key, you can use the following tables to select and load data: 

Table Description
Search Allows you to search for news stories.
Story Retrieves a specific story by ID.
RelatedSearch Retrieves stories related to a specific story ID.
Coverage Retrieves coverages for a story.
TimeSeries Retrieves time series.
Trends Used for finding trends.

To select and load data from a table, enter the required table parameters and click Preview data. Required parameters are marked with an asterisk (*). The table fields are displayed under the Data preview tab. You can select fields individually by selecting the box beside each field name. Select Insert script after you have made your selection.

Working with the AYLIEN News API quota limits

The Qlik Web Connectors use the AYLIEN News API to extract data from AYLIEN and load it into your Qlik Sense app. While reloading your AYLIEN-based app, you might receive an error message that the connector has reached the AYLIEN News API rate limit and that all subsequent API calls will fail until the connector falls back under the throttling limit. If you receive this error message, then you have exceeded one of the API rate limits.

Reference - AYLIEN News documentation

You can refer to the AYLIEN News API documentation to learn more about the requirements and restrictions imposed by the AYLIEN News API v1.0.


You receive an error message that you have reached the API rate limit

Possible cause

You have exceeded the API limits that are imposed by your AYLIEN News API app key.

Proposed action

To reduce the impact of reaching API rate limits, develop your app with the following in mind:

  • Extract only the data you need.
  • Reload one AYLIEN-based application at a time.
  • Ensure that loops in your script that make API calls do not result in infinite loops.
