QVSource: The QlikView & Qlik Sense API Connector (Docs)

Note that you will need QVSource Web Edition 1.0.1 and later (and QVSource WinForms 1.6.7.5 and later) to use this feature.

Some connectors contain multi line input parameters, for example for setting some JSON or XML configuration or other input data for a connector.

A commonly used example of this is the HTTP POST parameter on the Web Connector.

Or on the Web Edition:

(Note that the web edition does also have an additional button to open a much larger editable window for these input parameters).

In QVSource Web Edition 1.0.1 and later (and QVSource WinForms 1.6.7.5 and later) it is now possible to enter into these inputs:
@file=c:\path\to\file.txt

And have QVSource extract the value for this parameter from the file instead. This can make it much easier to manage and edit these values.

More powerfully, this can be used in conjunction with the ReplaceTokensInFile table in the Helper Connector which allows you to have version of the file which contains placeholder tokens, and then to use the ReplaceTokensInFile table to replace these tokens before passing it as a multilined input parameter to one of the connector tables.
