Creating an EDX task
To create an EDX task, use the following signature:
|guid||ID of the QlikView Distribution Service (QDS) where the task is defined.|
|taskNameOrId||Task name or ID of the task in string format.|
|password||Password (if required by the task).|
|variableName||Variable name (if required by the task).|
|variableValues||List of values for the variable.|
The returned result contains information on whether the task was successfully started or not.
The example below shows how to trigger a task and wait until it has finished or until a certain amount of time has passed.
The example comes from the QMS API documentation, which is installed as part of the QlikView Management Console (QMC). It contains detailed information on the available methods and how to get started with the QMS API.
