The QlikSugarCRM Connector uses Sugar Web Service APIs to fetch data from your SugarCRM account, such as Accounts, Contacts, Leads, and Opportunities.

Note: The built-in web connectors are only available on SaaS editions of Qlik Sense.

Ways to access your data

To access your SugarCRM data, you will need to authenticate the connector with your SugarCRM account credentials. To do this, enter a valid username and password, and the base URL for your SugarCRM account. The base URL is the URL when you first log in.

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 SugarCRM-based application at a time.
  • Ensure that loops in your script that make API calls will not result in infinite loops.
