The Salesforce Connector enables Qlik Sense to efficiently load data into an app from a data set. You must have a account with current access credentials to access data. Once a connection to a account has been created, data can be selected from tables available to the user’s account and then loaded into an app where it can be used in visualizations.

Supported Salesforce API version

The Salesforce Connector supports up to Salesforce API version 56.

Information note

Geolocation is composed of two primitive data types: longitude and latitude. The Salesforce Connector supports Geolocation by displaying each of its primitive types in separate fields. When a table contains a field with the Geolocation data type, the field displays as empty. The component values of the Geolocation field are then displayed in the table as two separate fields.
