Excluding the Qlik REST Connector from Qlik Sense installation

Starting from version 1.1 the Qlik REST Connector is installed automatically with Qlik Sense. The REST Connector does not have a separate installation program for Qlik Sense.

The REST Connector can be excluded when Qlik Sense is installed in silent mode.

Do the following:

  1. Uninstall any existing versions of Qlik Sense and the REST Connector on the system where the new version of Qlik Sense is to be installed.

    Warning: If an earlier version of the REST Connector is left on the system, it is not uninstalled by the Qlik Sense silent installation. The REST Connector will then appear on the list of available connectors in Add data and the Data load editor, but it will not work.
  2. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

    The Command Prompt window is displayed.

  3. In the Command Prompt window, navigate to the folder containing the Qlik_Sense_setup.exe file.
  4. Run the Qlik_Sense_setup.exe with the appropriate arguments for silent installation.

    For example:

    Qlik_Sense_setup.exe -s userwithdomain="mydomain\myUser" password="myPassword" SKIPRESTCONNECTOR=1

    Or:

    Qlik_Sense_setup.exe -s -l "c:\mylogpath" installdir="c:\mycustompath" dbpassword="mydbpassword" SKIPRESTCONNECTOR=1
