We are pleased to announce that the SAP Connector 6.1.2 Beta program is now available to our existing customers and partners!

 

New features in 6.1.2 version are:

SQL Connector

  • Significant performance improvement for reload times.
  • The parameter RemoveThousandSeparator is not used anymore. Thousand separators are always removed before sending the data from SAP to Qlik. If the parameter is present in old scripts, it will not be used.
  • New ‘wideselect’ functionality. SAP database fields with a column width exceeding 800 characters cannot be extracted by the current SQL connector. With the ‘wideselect’ functionality there is no limitation to column width. It is possible to extract one wide field column at a time together with a number of associated key fields.


  Extractor Connector  

  • New optional parameter “SocketTimeout”, used to fine tune the timeout triggered by the first connection to the Qlik SAP Network Server. Default value is 900 (seconds). The parameter can be added to the connection string. (Example: SocketTimeout=500).


BEx Connector   

  • Variables maintained in the Default Values section in BEx Query Designer are now available in the variables section in the BEx connector select window. Those variables were previously not included for use in the connector.

 

We encourage our customers and partners to take part in the SAP Connector 6.1.2 Beta program! To access the Beta software and report bugs or give feedback, please click here. Please read the Release Notes for all of the changes.

 

The beta will run until February 19th, 2016 and we kindly ask you to provide your feedback until then.

We look forward to hearing your input!

This SR does not include a corresponding delivery of the Qlik Sense Desktop. If you are currently using a 2.0.x version of Desktop, you will currently be receiving warning messages about its expiration at the end of this month. All 2.0.x versions of Sense Desktop expire on December 31. At this point it is more important to switch to the 2.1.1 version of Sense Desktop for uninterrupted usage, and be able to take advantage of new features introduced with the 2.1.1 release.

SAP Connector 6.1.1

Posted by Dean Ansermoz Nov 5, 2015

Today we have released a minor update to our SAP connector. 6.1.1 now replaces version 6.1 due to two issues which were impacting performance of the SQL connector.

 

These issues have now been resolved.

 

A small number of customers had experienced an issue with the parameter ‘TimeOutFetch’ which had caused a trigger to terminate the job before completion in some cases. The workaround would be to put a high value in the parameter. The issue has now been resolved

and the parameter is now working as expected.

In addition it was also identified that there was a performance degrade in release 6.1. The issue has now been resolved


When upgrading to 6.1.1 from 6.1 only one SAP transport is needed to be imported into their base client:

 

Basis 640-71x
E6DK900758

or

Basis 720-74x
E66K900063

Thanks

SAP Connector 6.1

Posted by Dean Ansermoz Oct 22, 2015

We have now made available version 6.1 of the Qlik SAP Connector, which is now on the Qlik product download page.

 

As with version 6.0 of the SAP connector, there are 8 connectors contained within this release:

  • SQL
  • Bapi
  • Extractor
  • BEx
  • OLAP
  • Report
  • Query
  • DSO

From this release (6.1) we have updated the SQL connector which is contained within this package to natively support Qlik Sense within a single package and installation. This also provides an updated UI for QlikView, and now Qlik Sense to assist with building script directly within the UI.

 

A number of further enhancements and bug fixes are also included in this release, and further details can be found in the attached release notes.

 

Thanks
