Box

The Qlik Box Connector enables you access data that is stored on files in your Box account and to select and load that data into your Qlik Sense app or QlikView document.

Tip:

The Qlik Web Connectors help you connect to different data sources and fetch data in the same way. Learn how to authenticate a data source connection and how to use tables to fetch data.
