The Qlik Slack V2 Connector enables you to select data from your Slack account, such as lists of available public channels or private messages, and load it into your Qlik Sense app or QlikView document.
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.
