New analytics data connection API
Qlik Sense applications running in Qlik Cloud rely on Analytics Data Connections to load data from external sources. The new Data Connectivity as a Service (DCaaS) API provides you with the ability to provision new Analytics Data Connections to supported sources using any supported authentication type.
This release of the DCaaS API supports creation of direct connections to:
- Microsoft SQL Server
- Google Big Query
- Amazon S3 (Web Storage and Metadata, via either v1 or v2 connector)
- Google Cloud Storage (Web Storage and Metadata)
Note: Connections via the Direct Access or Data Movement Gateway are not supported in this release. Non-analytics data connections cannot be configured via DCaaS.
Additionally, support for calls to paths
have been added to the Raw blocks in the Qlik Cloud Services connector in
Qlik Application Automation (Qlik Platform Operations allows all endpoints by default).
