Managing data connections and extensions

Data connections

Data connections enable you to select and load data from a data source. All data connections are managed centrally from the QMC. Data connections are created in the Qlik Sense data load editor. The user who creates a data connection automatically becomes the owner of that connection and is by default the only user who can access the data connection. The data connection can be shared with others through security rules defined in the QMC.

When you import an app developed on Qlik Sense Desktop, existing data connections are imported to the QMC. When you export an app from a server, existing data connections are not exported with the app.

참고: If the name of a data connection in the imported app is the same as the name of an existing data connection, the data connection will not be imported. This means that the imported app will use the existing data connection with an identical name, not the data connection in the imported app.

Analytic connections

분석 연결을 사용하면 외부 분석을 Business Discovery와 통합할 수 있습니다. 분석 연결은 외부 계산 엔진을 호출하여 로드 스크립트 및 차트에서 사용할 수 있는 표현식을 확장합니다. 이렇게 하면 계산 엔진이 서버 측 확장(SSE) 역할을 합니다. 예를 들어 R에 대한 분석 연결을 만들고 데이터를 로드할 때 통계식을 사용할 수 있습니다.


Extensions can be several different things: A widget library, a custom theme, or a visualization extension, used to visualize data, for example, in an interactive map where you can select different regions.
