Using multi-line input parameters to fetch data

Some connector tables let you enter multi-line input parameters for setting, for example, JSON or XML configuration or other input data for a connector. A commonly used example of this is the POST/PATCH/PUT Parameter(s) on the Qlik General Web Connector.

You can type your multi-line parameters directly into the field or you attach a file by specifying the file path.

Example:  

@file=c:\path\to\file.txt

A file can be used in conjunction with the ReplaceTokensInFile table in the Qlik Helper Connector.You can have a version of the file that contains placeholder tokens, and then use the ReplaceTokensInFile table to replace these tokens before passing them as a multi-line input parameter to one of the connector tables.
