Custom connectors

The QVX SDK includes an interface used for developing custom connectors in QlikView and Qlik Sense. A QVX formatted file contains metadata describing a table of data and the actual data.

Information noteThis functionality is not available in Qlik Sense SaaS.

A custom connector can work in either of two ways:

  • It can reply to requests from QlikView or Qlik Sense to connect to a data source, retrieve data, and then stream QVX formatted data back.
  • Alternatively, it can run as a standalone application and create a QVX file to be loaded into QlikView or Qlik Sense later on.

Access the complete QVX API reference documentation.

Information noteData connections using custom connectors are only available in the data load editor. They cannot be accessed by the Qlik Sense Data manager.
