The Qlik Qualtrics connector uses the Qualtrics API to load data from your Qualtrics repositories, including survey data, questions, and responses.
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.
This connector must be installed separately.
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.
|Surveys||Use this table to fetch the complete list of Qualtrics surveys available to the authenticated user.|
|Questions||Use this table to fetch the list of questions in a specified survey.|
|Responses||Use this table to fetch the list of responses to a specified survey.|
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.

You can refer to the Qualtrics developer documentation to learn more about the requirements and restrictions imposed by the Qualtrics API.
Limitations and known issues
Illegal characters in survey name
If the survey name contains illegal characters, the responses table will return an error message.
List of illegal characters: \ / : * ? " < > |
You receive an error message that you have reached the API rate limit
You have exceeded the API limits that are imposed on the Qlik Web Connectors by the Qualtrics API.
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.
