Use external calculations in Qlik Sense
A server-side extension (SSE) allows you to leverage the power of external calculation engines, such as Python, R and many other languages, in Qlik Sense. When you use an SSE plugin, Qlik Sense sends the data (associated with the current selections) through an analytic connection to the plugin. The SSE plugin does the calculation of the expression, and passes the result back to Qlik Sense.
You can use externally calculated expressions in:
- data load scripts
- chart expressions
Create a new analytic connection
Configure an analytic connection to a server-side extension (SSE) plugin in QMC, or use the QRS API.
