Creating a Qlik AutoML connection

Qlik AutoML connections are created in the data load editor or the hub.

Once you have created a connection, you can select data from the available tables to send to Qlik AutoML for calculations, and then load that data into your app. This connection can not only be used in your data load script but also in chart expressions to call model endpoints and perform real time chart expression calculations.

Information noteIn order for a deployment to appear in the ML deployment dropdown, you must select Enable real-time API access in the Create ML deployment dialog window when creating the deployment.

Configurable settings

The following settings can be configured in the connection dialog:
