Here are some of the highlights of the new and updated features of QlikView.
The QlikView April 2020 release is directly tied to the launch of our Analytics Modernization Program, enabling QlikView customers to modernize their BI platform by leveraging the investment already made in QlikView. Furthermore, customers will now be able to automate QlikView document uploads to the Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS hub for consumption. The QlikView April 2020 release specifically provides the following new features in support of this effort.
Automate QlikView document uploads
Distribute on-premises QlikView apps to the Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS hub to use both products side-by-side, in conjunction with the Analytics Modernization Program or Dual Use Licensing (former offer).
QlikView IE Plugin Client in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS
The QlikView Internet Explorer (IE) plugin is now supported for QlikView apps in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS.
Accessibility extension and GeoAnalytics extension for QlikView is available in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS.
QlikView Publisher license key support
QlikView April 2020 includes support of signed license keys in QlikView Publisher supporting the Analytics Modernization Program and unified licensing.
QlikView April 2020 adds support for QVD encryption. Like Qlik Sense QVD Encryption, QlikView can now read and write encrypted QVD files.
Allow Mail with bookmark as a link for Analyzer users
QlikView April 2020 now allow QlikView analyzer users to mail bookmark links. In the previous release, this was restricted to professional user types only.
QlikView April 2020 adds Exclusive percentile function support.
Make the QDS more resilient when system stalls out
QlikView April 2020 includes the following improvements to make the QDS more resilient if the system stalls out:
- If the load balancer is locked, the QMC now displays "Cluster is down" in the task menu.
- QlikView now tries to reopen a file for 10 seconds instead of for one minute, which leads to quicker response in logs about locked files.
- If QlikView fails to grab Loadbalancer.xml on disk it will revert to the in-memory cached load balancer if such exists.
- Emails about Cluster is Down can be sent by setting up parameter "ServiceFailureAlertEmailAddresses" in a QMS config file.
Support for QlikView QDS Alert email for AD Security Groups
With QlikView April 2020 you can also send QDS alerts to Security Groups.
