Ways to access your data

To access your Qualtrics data, you need to authenticate the connector with your Qualtrics API credentials. After you create a connection and select Qualtrics as your data source, enter the API token associated with your account, and specify the Qualtrics base URL of the repository you want to access.

Loading data from tables

After you authenticate the connector with your account credentials, use the tables to fetch your data. Some tables are preconfigured to access a specific set of data while others let you create custom queries. The table below outlines some of the use cases for some of the tables that are available.

Tables that can be loaded
Table Available in Description
Surveys Data load editor Use this table to fetch the complete list of Qualtrics surveys available to the authenticated user.
Questions Data load editor Use this table to fetch the list of questions in a specified survey.
Responses Data manager and Data load editor Use this table to fetch the list of responses to a specified survey.

To select and load data from a table, enter the required table parameters and click Preview data. Required parameters are marked with an asterisk (*) in the dialog. The table fields are displayed under the Data preview tab. You can select fields individually by selecting the box beside each field name. Select Insert script after you have made your selection.

Creating a connection and selecting data

Table parameters

To run some of the tables, you need to enter specific table parameters, usually in the form of an object ID or an object name. You can find many of these parameters when you run other tables.

For example, to run the Questions table you need the Survey ID. You can fetch the list of Survey IDs by running the Surveys table.

Limitations and known issues

Illegal characters in survey name

If the survey name contains illegal characters, the responses table will return an error message.

You receive an error message that you have reached the API rate limit

Possible cause

You have exceeded the API limits that are imposed on the Qlik Web Connectors by the Qualtrics API.

Proposed action

To reduce the impact of reaching the API rate limits, develop your app with the following in mind:

  • Extract only the data you need.
  • Reload one Qualtrics-based application at a time.
  • Ensure that loops in your script that make API calls will not result in infinite loops.
