QVSource: The QlikView & Qlik Sense API Connector (Docs)

The below is still the official/supported method of using QVSource with Qlik Sense, however we are now working on a new mechanism which uses the Qlik REST Connector and avoids the below technique however this is still in beta.

In the current version (at time of writing October 2014) of Qlik Sense the default load script behaviour prohibits creating and running load requests from arbitrary URLs as the load script is running.

Unfortunately, this is a common technique used by QlikView developers, both via QVSource and making direct web requests and we have currently made this known to Qlik and are hopeful that a better solution from them will be in place soon.

NOTE that you can use the URL (between the [...] in the generated load script) in Qlik Sense without any configuration changes by selecting 'Create new connection' -> 'Web file' and using the URL as the source. But you cannot then modify this URL as the script is running (which is a very powerful and common technique used by Qlik developers) - you will have to create a new connection for each unique request URL.

We would therefore recommend making the change outline below which gives much more flexibility in the load script.

Qlik Sense Desktop
In order to enable the previous load script behaviour in Qlik Sense Desktop (which is also the standard in QlikView) you will need to follow the instructions here to disable the standard mode. The instructions are:

  • Open C:\Users\{user}\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Settings.ini in a text editor.
  • Change StandardReload=1 to StandardReload=0.
  • Save the file and start Qlik Sense Desktop, which will run in legacy mode.
  • The available settings for StandardReload are:

The available modes are:
  • 1 (standard mode)
  • 0 (legacy mode)

Qlik Sense Server
According to a comment in this thread, in Qlik Sense Server v1.0, in the QMC under Configuration > Engine - you can also edit this configuration using a checkbox that has a label of "Standard". Uncheck this option to configure the "legacy" mode. This updates the .ini so no need to manually edit a file.

Note - that it appears you may need to restart the Qlik Sense Service in order for this change to take effect.
