License rule audit: Preview audit rules

This API is extremely reliable and will not be broken unless absolutely necessary.






Get a preview of the effect of a license rule based on resource type, a selection of users, and a selection of resources before the rule is added in Qlik Sense.


AuditPreviewParameters: { "resourceType": "App" // or any type at all, "ResourceFilter": "resource filter [string]", "UserFilter": "user filter [string]", "EnvironmentAttributes": "type1=value1;type2=value2", "RuleConditions": a rule, "Actions": what the user is allowed to do "userSkip": "count [integer]", "userTake": "count [integer]", "resourceSkip": "count [integer]", "resourceTake": "count [integer]" }

The environmentAttributes type is one (or several, separated by “;”) of the following:

  • OS
  • Device
  • Browser
  • RequestType
  • IP

Return value

Note: The audit results for all objects are returned, not just for the objects that the auditor has access to. For each object, the name and GUID are returned.


{ "users": { "[GUID]": { // A user object "userId": "…", "userDirectory": "…", "name": "…", … }, "[GUID]": { … } }, "resources": { "[GUID]": { // An object of arbitrary type "…", }, "[GUID]": { … } }, "rules": { "[GUID]": { // Security rule object "type": "…", "name": "…", "rule": "…", "resourceFilter": "…", … }, "[GUID]": { … } }, "ruleApplication": [ { "userID": "[GUID]", "resourceID": "[GUID]", "ruleID": "[GUID]", "allowed": boolean, "errorAt": integer, "errorMessage": "…", "evaluationState": "evaluated/parsefailure/evaluationfailure" }, { … } ] }
