The Qlik NPrinting April 2018 Preview includes new features like:

Qlik NPrinting supports Single Sign-On (SSO) by using SAML. SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider (IdP) and a service provider (SP). Based on XML the most important user case is with Web Browser Single Sign-On. Both Qlik NPrinting Web Console and NewsStand can be configured to manage SAML authentication.

  • Filter and content node response management

Qlik NPrinting filtering system is improved and it is now able to manage many errors that appeared with messages like "Wrong content node response" or "Apply empty response". Static empty content or invalid selections will be managed without errors.

The Qlik Web Connectors November 2017 Release (2.28.2) is now available on the Qlik.com download page (you need to be logged in to Qlik.com)

 

Along with a number of general improvements, this version has 4 new beta connectors added to the suite including:

  • Office 365 Mail/Contacts/Calendar
  • OneDrive v2 - which is enabled for OneDrive business accounts,
  • IBM Watson Natural Language Understanding for more text and sentiment analytics, and
  • for all of you desperate to better your fitness performance, there's even a Strava Connector

 

This now means that there are 47 connectors available

 

If you're using Qlik Web Connectors 2.2.0 and either any beta connectors or standard connectors, please read the note towards the end of this post about upgrading.

 

In this release no connectors were moved from a beta state to either Premium or Standard Connectors.

 

Some multi-source connectors have been split into individual connector, so for example in previous versions of the Qlik Web Connectors we had the Premium Qlik Sentiment and Text Analytics Connector, which required a subscription and corresponding LEF.

 

You will now see the following Premium Connectors listed, although they all share the same, single

Sentiment & Text Analytics subscription and LEF entry:

  • Qlik MeaningCloud Connector
  • Qlik Repustate Connector
  • Qlik Sentiment140 Connector

 

The Qlik RegEx Connector is now a free, Standard Connector

 

The following connectors have been split out but also deprecated:

  • Qlik Alchemy Connector
    • This has been replaced by the Qlik Watson Natural Language Understanding Connector
  • Qlik Saplo Connector

 

Other connectors that have been split out are the AYLIEN Connector and Mailbox Connector.

 

The Qlik script that has been generated using these previous connectors may need to be modified. Please refer to the Release Notes, for more information.

 

Current Users of Beta Connectors or Only Standard Connectors

As a reminder, if you are using Qlik Web Connectors 2.2.0 and either:

  • any Beta Connectors or
  • any Standard Connectors WITHOUT any Premium Connectors enabled

 

then these will expire on 31-Jan-2018, so you must upgrade to the new November 2017 Release (2.28.2) version as soon as possible.


The new expiry date in the November 2017 Release will be 30-Nov-2018.We also maintain a schedule here.

 

See here for help on upgrading.

 

Please see the release notes, also on the download site, for full details.

Qlik customers & partners are invited to join the Qlik NPrinting February 2018 Technical Preview. This Preview includes some improvements, bug fixes and the following new capabilities:

 

  • Single Sign On support with JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication

Qlik NPrinting log in supports JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication. JSON Web Token (JWT) is an open standard for secure transmission of information between two parties used for authentication and authorization. JWT enables single sign-on (SSO) in Qlik NPrinting, so it minimizes the number of times a user has to log on to cloud applications and websites.

  • QlikView server DMS authorization is supported

Qlik NPrinting connections to QlikView Server now supports DMS authentication. Section access can be integrated easily with Qlik NPrinting without the need of other actions and Qlik NPrinting On-Demand plugin works for Access Point users authenticated with DMS credentials.

Qlik customers & partners are invited to join the Qlik NPrinting November 2017 Technical Preview. This Preview includes some improvements, bug fixes and the following new capabilities:

 

Embed HTML and QlikEntity report into email bodies

You can embed HTML and QlikEntity reports directly into email bodies. Recipients will be able to see your data directly, without having to download and open an attachment.

Configurable image quality APIs status changed to Stable

You can change the image quality of Qlik Sense and QlikView objects by adjusting their dots per inch (DPI) in your published reports. This means you could create, for example, a PowerPoint report with high-quality images (that will look good on a large screen), and a second version with lower-quality images (and a smaller file size) to be shared by email. This feature covers a gap with QlikView NPrinting 16.

APIs status changed to Stable

Qlik NPrinting APIs, all available APIs, status is changed from experimental to stable. This means that Qlik NPrinting APIs are highly

reliable and breaking changes are extremely unlikely. The deprecation period is six months.


Microsoft Windows 2016 Server is supported

Microsoft Windows 2016 Server is now officially supported. You can install Qlik NPrinting Server, Engine, and Designer on Windows 2016 computers.


QlikView 12.10 SR8 is supported

Qlik Web Connectors 2.2.0 is now available on the Qlik.com download page.

 

The previous release of Qlik Web Connectors saw beta connectors being reintroduced and in this version some of these are now generally available and we have also added 3 new beta connectors!

 

This now means that there are 40 connectors available

 

If you're using Qlik Web Connectors 2.1.0 and either any beta connectors or standard connectors, please read the note towards the end of this post about upgrading.

 

The following were moved from beta to Premium connectors and will require a Qlik Web Connector LEF to continue using them:

  1. Qlik Google Search Console Connector (previously know as Qlik Google Webmaster Tools Connector)
  2. Qlik Slack Connector

 

The following were moved from beta to Standard connectors:

  1. Qlik Bitly Connector
  2. Qlik Box Connector
  3. Qlik OneDrive Connector

 

Beta connectors included are:

  1. Qlik Adobe Analytics (Ominture) Connector
  2. Qlik Amazon S3 Connector
  3. Qlik AYLIEN Connector (new!)
  4. Qlik Blue Yonder Connector
  5. Qlik GitHub Connector (new!)
  6. Qlik Google DoubleClick for Advertisers (DFA) Connector
  7. Qlik Google Prediction Connector
  8. Qlik JIRA Connector
  9. Qlik Office 365 Sharepoint Connector
  10. Qlik SurveyMonkey Connector (new!)

 

Unfortunately, the Qlik Azure Data Marketplace Connector had to be removed because Microsoft have retired their Data Marketplace, meaning that there was nothing to connect to.

 

How to Access the Beta Connectors

There is no special 'beta' version of the Qlik Web Connectors to use, you just download the new version and you'll find them in there along with the rest of the connectors.

 

However, there are some very important things to note:

  • You MUST accept some additional beta terms in order to access them.
  • There's no special license to apply, so once the terms are accepted you can use all of the beta connectors.
  • In this version, the beta connectors will ALL expire on the 31st January 2018 for ALL users (around 10 months from release date)
  • There is no support and maintenance provided by Qlik for the beta connectors, instead you can seek peer assistance in the new Qlik Web Connectors' community group. So, please don't go to Qlik support for help.
  • They are beta connectors. Please don't use them in production!

 

Why do they Expire?

We wanted to make the beta connectors as accessible to as many Qlik users as we could, but we had to strike a balance to ensure that in the future we aren't finding beta connectors being used that have been updated many times over and/or available to subscribe to.

 

Hence we decided to use an expiry date. To use them past this date, just download the latest version at the time.

 

How the Betas Expiring Impacts the Use of Other Connectors

The beta connectors' expiry date has been set to the same expiry date already used in Qlik Web Connectors that affects those using just Standard Connectors. So, if you only use Standard Connectors, you need to update anyway.

 

If you subscribe to any Premium Connectors, they will continue to work up until their subscribed-to expiry date and will not be affected by the beta connectors expiring. However, if you wish to continue to use the beta connectors past their expiry date, you will still need to download the latest version at the time.

 

Current Users of Beta Connectors or Only Standard Connectors

As a reminder, if you are using Qlik Web Connectors 2.1.0 and either:

  • any Beta Connectors or
  • any Standard Connectors WITHOUT any Premium Connectors enabled

 

then these will expire on 31-May-2017, so you must upgrade to the new 2.2.0 version as soon as possible.

 

See here for help on upgrading.

 

Please see the release notes, also on the download site, for full details.

We hope you continue to enjoy using the Qlik Web Connectors and please join the new community group, where you can provide us with feedback on the product, any of the connectors, seek assistance with the beta connectors or exchange ideas and solutions with other users.

 

Thanks

A preview of the new Qlik Connectors Help Site is now open for customers and partners and available through Qlik Connectors Help site Preview community.

We have started building a new Qlik Connectors help site. The new site is designed to simplify search and navigation. We greatly value if you could spend a few minutes to give us feedback on what you think of these changes.

The community closes May 4th.

Send an email to insight@qlik.com if you have any issues accessing the community.

We have now released an updated version of our SAP Certified connector.

 

The big news in this release is the addition of a brand new connector which has native support for Qlik Sense 3.0 and higher. The InfoProvider Connector enables a user to self serve against two InfoProvider types which include InfoCubes and MultiProviders within SAP BW.

 

Some additional features include:

 

BEx Connector

  • Supports queries on Transient providers.
  • Improved memory handling in the SAP part of the connector has increased the capacity to use big BEx queries. There is still, however, a maximum limit of the number of rows that can be downloaded, depending on the memory settings in each SAP system.

 

SQL Connector

Two new connection string properties are available:

  • FLTPLegacy for setting the transfer format for floating point data to either string

    values with scientific notation or decimal format. SAP

  • TIMSLegacy for setting the transfer format for date-time values when writing to

    QVDs. SAP

  • Together with the connection string properties MixedMode and NulldateLegacy,

    which were introduced in version 6.3.2 of the connector, it is now possible to customize the connector to keep a previous behavior regarding how SAP data types are treated in Qlik.

 

 


 

The release is available today from the product download page.


Many thanks
