image_pdfimage_print

This component defines a connection to the business intelligence & visualization software Qlik Sense.

For this connection a “Qlik Connector License” is required.

Main settings

Qlik Sense host

Host of the Qlik Sense server.

User

Name of the Qlik Sense user.

User directory

User directory of the Qlik Sense user.

In order to connect the Qlik Sense server, a virtual proxy must be created in the Qlik Management Console (QMC).

Qlik Management console is accessible via the URL “<qlikServerAddress>/qmc/”.
In the QMC main dashboard “Virtual Proxies”, which is under the “CONFIGURE SYSTEM” node, create a virtual proxy with the following steps:

1.) Click “Create new” button and specify the basic info settings according to your requirements.
(Right panel shows all of the properties via the selection).
2.) Select “Header authentication Dynamic User Directory” in Authentication section.
(Jedox authentication only works with “Header authentication Dynamic User Directory”. Other authentications will be implemented in future.)
3.) Specify “Header authentication header name” and “Header authentication dynamic user directory” (see screenshot “Internal qmc panel” below).
4.) Click “Apply” button. Qlik Sense server will show a warning dialog that indicates that the virtual proxy will be restarted. Click yes and this will create the virtual proxy.  
5.) The last step is the creation of a link between the central proxy and the proxy created in step 4. Under the right panel “Associated Items/Proxies”, the user can define link to the central proxy. (This panel is not activated until the virtual proxy is applied in Step 4.) 

After these steps, Jedox Integrator will be able to connect the Qlik server instance with predefined parameters.

Hint: User directories can be found in “https://qlikServer/qmc/users

 Internal qmc panel:
