English Qlik Connectors

Qlik Web Connectors

Qlik Web Connectors is a light-weight web service that has a wide range of connectors that reach out to specific web based data sources.

Qlik Web Connectors can reside either on the same machine as the QlikView or Qlik Sense Server or on a separate machine. The connectors for the specific web APIs bring back data based on your requirements.

To help get this data into QlikView or Qlik Sense, Qlik Web Connectors automatically generates some load script, which you can then copy and paste into your application. To QlikView and Qlik Sense the web based data is just another data source such as an SQL database. With Qlik Web Connectors running, you simply reload the application as you would normally, either manually or scheduled through the Management Console. When the Qlik Web Connectors section of the load script is reached, Qlik Web Connectors gets to work and gets your data.

Some of the Qlik Web Connector data sources are integrated into Qlik Sense and do not require a separate installation.
