Qlik connectors installed with Qlik Sense

Qlik connectors that previously had to be installed separately are now installed automatically with Qlik Sense.

  • The QlikREST Connector 1.1 enables Qlik Sense to efficiently load data into a Qlik Sense app from a REST data source. The QlikREST Connector is a generic connector. That is, it is not tailored to a specific REST data source.

  • The QlikSalesforce Connector 14.0 enables Qlik Sense to efficiently load data into a Qlik Sense app from a Salesforce.com data set. Salesforce.com data is available to users with a Salesforce.com account and current access credentials.

  • The Qlik database connectors in the ODBC Connectors Package 1.1 enable Qlik Sense to efficiently load data into a Qlik Sense app from databases accessed through supported ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) drivers. When using one of the database connectors in the Qlik ODBC Connectors Package, you do not need to create a DSN connection before connecting to the ODBC database.

Managing table associations in Data manager

The Associations view in Data manager has a new and improved user interface, with bubbles representing the tables in the data model. You can associate your data more easily according to recommendations.

New multiple-table structure for Qlik DataMarket data sets

A multiple-table structure increases the efficiency with which data is loaded, and it can improve the data associations.

When data is loaded from a Qlik DataMarket data set, it is allocated to multiple individual tables. These tables are associated by generated key fields. Measures and time periods from the data set are consolidated in one table that is assigned the name of the data set. Dimension fields are allocated to individual tables.

New language support

Enhance your apps with widgets

To enhance the appearance and behavior of your apps, you can now create and use a new type of custom object, the widget. Libraries of widgets appear in the assets panel alongside visualization extensions. Widgets are simpler than visualization extensions to build. Typically, widgets are customized KPI objects, simple chart-style visualizations, tables, and sheet navigation objects.
