What's new in Qlik Sense May 2022
This section provides Qlik Sense business users, analytic creators, and data integrators a summary of the features and improvements available in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows.
Business logic fine grain controls in Insight Advisor
Business Logic allows you to define the default grain for a calendar period, such as a yearly, quarterly or monthly basis. When you create behaviors such as default calendar periods, you can now specify whether to use or ignore the grain for a particular analysis, providing more advanced fine grain controls.
Visualizations and dashboards
New actions for button object
New actions available with the button object improve the workflow for on-demand apps and dynamic views. App developers can use the button to make interfacing with and transitioning to a new app more user friendly.
Label coloring with map chart
New map settings include options for label coloring, allowing you to customize how labels contrast with the base map or colored areas. Set your map to automatically adjust the label coloring depending on the base map, or select your preferred coloring.
Favorites in the hub
Mark your private or any published apps as favorite for easy access in the hub. Favorite apps are marked with a icon and display in the new Favorites section. This section is visible in the hub only when at least one app is marked as a favorite.
Scatterplot now supports regression lines
The redesigned scatterplot chart provides greater flexibility and detail. Scatterplot now supports regression lines, including average, linear, exponential, and logarithmic, as well as second, third, and fourth polynomial. Customize the regression line settings including color and type, vertical or horizontal fit, and show formula to quickly see the relationship between two variables.
KPI background color and new icons
Now you can add background colors to KPI charts, giving you more flexibility when customizing your visualizations. An extensive array of new icons has also been added to the existing icon set.
Uploading apps with GeoAnalytics extensions to Qlik Cloud
To help customers who are transitioning to Qlik Cloud, there is a 12-month grace period for apps that use GeoAnalytics extensions and have been uploaded to Qlik Cloud from other versions of Qlik Sense. Following the grace period, you can use the map chart in Qlik Cloud, which is faster, easier to use, prints better and includes more features.
Databricks ODBC Connector has OAuth support and improved interface
The Databricks Connector now supports OAuth 2.0 authentication with Databricks on Azure. The support for OAuth also allows single sign-on (SSO) to Databricks when using an identity provider.
The Databricks connection interface has been simplified to include the database properties that apply only to this connector.
Qlik Web Connectors included in Qlik Sense Enterprise Client-Managed
The Qlik Web Storage Provider Connectors are now available in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows in the same way as in Qlik Sense SaaS. The corresponding metadata connectors are also integrated, without the need for Qlik Web Connectors to be separately installed. These connectors allow you to connect to file-based data stored on a web storage provider, either by browsing for folders and files directly in the interface, or using the separate metadata connectors listing the structures and objects in tables. The web storage provider platforms supported are Amazon S3, Azure Storage, Dropbox, Google Cloud Storage, Google Drive, Office 365 SharePoint, and OneDrive.
Support for uploading Oracle Wallets
The Qlik Oracle Connector now provides additional security capabilities with support for uploading an Oracle Wallet file. Oracle Wallets are containers that store authentication credentials, private keys, certificates, and more. This allows organizations to easily enforce security rules based on defined user privileges contained in an Oracle Wallet. The Qlik Oracle Connector can now access Oracle Wallets through a TLS-encrypted communication channel.
Data and platform
Self-service task management—Create, edit, and delete reload tasks in the hub
New capabilities in the hub allow users with the appropriate permissions to create, edit, and delete reload tasks and scheduled triggers.
This feature is released under the feature flag "HUB_CREATE_EDIT_DELETE_TASK", and is disabled (set to false) by default.
