QVSource 1.6.0 Now Available

We have just released version 1.6.0 of QVSource - The QlikView & Qlik Sense API Connector.

This blog posts outlines the main changes. As always, we would also recommend you read the notes on the "Change Log" tab of any connectors you are using for a comprehensive overview of changes.

New Connectors

  • We have a new connector to JIRA (hosted or locally run). Currently there are only a couple of tables, one to retrieve all issues and another to make and custom REST API request but we will add to this in the next release - please let us know what features/data you need so we can make sure you are covered.

Updated Connectors

  • IMPORTANT/BREAKING CHANGE: We have removed the MyAccounts and Messages tables (as we do not believe they are being used and would now require us getting approval from Facebook to continue using) as well as the FriendsWhoUseThisApp table which we also believe is not useful from the Facebook Fan Pages Connector.
  • V3 of the Facebook Insights Connector has been added (and V2 removed). All requests to FacebookInsightsConnectorV2 will now be automatically routed to FacebookInsightsConnectorV3 (although we would still recommend making the same change in all your load scripts to avoid confusion). BREAKING CHANGE: Unfortunately, Facebook have now changed their Insights API and application insights are no longer available in this version of the connector although we hope to resolve this soon.
  • We have a new V2 of the Salesforce Connector. This replicates the functionality of the previous version and also has additional Insert and Update tables which allow you to write data back to Salesforce from your QlikView or Qlik Sense load scripts.
  • The MongoDB Connector now scans all items in the MongoDB Collection in order to establish all possible columns before generating the table for QlikView/Qlik Sense.
  • A new TableSchema table has been added to the Google BigQuery Connector.
  • The SugarCRM Connector has new max results and order by inputs which makes it much easier to get just the data you need. We hope to add a filter input to this connector also soon.
  • The Klout Connector now makes all API calls over HTTPS instead of HTTP.
  • The Adobe Analytics (Omniture) Connector has a fix in to avoid having duplicate column names in the result tables.

Deprecated Connectors

The following connectors have been deprecated and will likely be removed from the product in a future version.

  • The DFA Connector (which was still in beta) has been deprecated as it uses an API which Google are now removing later in the year. Please contact us if you would like us to consider redeveloping this connector to use the latest DFA API.

QVSource 1.5.3 Now Available

We have just released version 1.5.3 of QVSource - The QlikView API Connector. This blog posts outlines the main changes

As always, we would also recommend you read the notes on the "Change Log" tab of any connectors you are using for a comprehensive overview of changes.

New Connectors

  • Dropbox Connector: We have a brand new connector (beta) for Dropbox which allows you to list your files and folders, download file contents directly to QlikView as well as upload files to Dropbox via your QlikView load script.
  • Google BigQuery Connector: We have a brand new (beta) connector for Google BigQuery.
  • Sentiment Analysis & Text Analytics Connector:  We have added a new Regular Expression option to this Connector which allows you to perform RegEx analysis on any textual data in your QlikView application - you can see some examples here. Note that this is implemented locally in QVSource (it doesn't go via a Web API) so is very fast.

Updated Connectors

  • Twingly (Blog Search) Connector: We have an updated version of our Twingly Connector which allows searching for results from millions of blogs from around the world. With the new version you now get a small number of free API calls whilst trialling the connector and a larger number as a commercial user and there is no longer any need to contact Twingly separately for an API key.
  • Google Drive Connector: This now has a new table to return the contents of a file as XML (useful for example if you are hosting a QVD file on Google Drive).
  • Twitter Connector:  The Tweet Lookup table uses a new feature of the Twitter REST API which means it can now lookup up the data for up to 100 comma separated Tweet IDs per request (and 60 of these requests can be made per 15 minutes meaning ). We have also added the following trend related tables: TrendingLocations, TrendsForPlace, LocationsWithTrends. Finally, we have fixed a bug in the UserSearch table which was returning duplicated rows in some instances.
  • File Transfer (FTP/SFTP) Connector: FTPDownloadAndList and SFTPDownloadAndList tables have been added which list which files were downloaded and a FileCount column has been added to the simpler FTPDownloadFile/SFTPDownloadFile tables.
  • Sentiment Analysis & Text Analytics Connector:  We have added tables to support the new semantic API features from Repustate (Themes, Entities and Expansions). Please note also the old V1 of this connector is now deprecated and all users should move to the new version.
  • POP3/IMAP Mailbox Connector: We have added a new ImapMessageHeaders to allow you to access the emails headers.
