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

NOTE, QVSource also has Connectors to:


This connector currently supports:
  • Secure FTP (SFTP) and FTP.
  • Authentication with username and password or public/private keys (SFTP).
  • Listing of files and folders in a given location on the server (v1.0.2 and later).
  • Downloading a named file from your FTP/SFTP server to a local directory (from where it can be loaded into QlikView).
    • Note - you can also use wild card characters to download multiple files - e.g. you could specify '/myfolder/*.txt' to download all text files. There are now tables which return the list of files which were downloaded.
  • Streaming the contents of a named file from your FTP/SFTP server directly into QlikView.
  • Uploading a file to your FTP/SFTP server.

Please contact us if you would like to see other features (including authentication modes or other file transfer protocols) supported.



If you are having trouble connecting to your FTP/SFTP server, before contacting support please first verify that you can connect to it successfully from another FTP tool such as Filezilla as this will likely be the first thing we would ask you to demonstrate over a support call.
