Authenticating API requests to cloud editions of Qlik Sense Enterprise

With cloud editions of Qlik Sense Enterprise, you authenticate API requests by implementing the client credentials grant.

The client credentials grant is primarily used for Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows integration among other possibilities. It provides a tenant global credential with elevated privilege in the configured IdP, so care should be exercised when giving access to applications and users. There is no user identity context with the client credentials grant.
