Qlik Sense User Directory Connector API

This documentation describes the Qlik Sense User Directory Connector (UDC) API.

The UDC API is used to import Qlik Sense users and groups.

There can be multiple instances of each UDC in a Qlik Sense deployment.

For Active Directory, a UDC must be configured for each domain.

When configuring in the Qlik Management Console (QMC), the name of the user directory must match the one sent with the user ID when requesting a ticket from the Qlik Sense Proxy Service (QPS).

The DLLs implement a .NET UDC API defined by Qlik Sense. The DLLs are loaded dynamically when they are configured in the QMC.

Example 1: Active Directory

QLIKDOMAIN\jsmith gives:

  • User directory: QLIKDOMAIN
  • User ID: jsmith

Example 2: Google

j.smith@gmail.com gives:

  • User directory: gmail.com
  • User ID: j.smith

Alternatively:

  • User directory: Google
  • User ID: j.smith@gmail.com
