I am new to the Qlik Data Catalyst world. I am trying to make a source connection in QDC for reading local files from my own system. I have read the documentation, but for some reason, I am unable to crack the solution till now. I
first you need to move your data file to your QDC machine file system. In this example I have my local data into /usr/local/qdc/tmp/SampleData.csv.
Then you need to go to Source tab and click on Add Data (top right). Click on Add new data --> New Source and then compile as below:
In the next step insert your entity name and your file path with file name. Then choose "Source" as Metadata Method. This allow QDC to get metadata directly from the source file in an automatic way. Then click on Generate Record Layout.
If you scroll to the bottom and you click on Record Layout Preview you will be able to see your fields. In this section you can check the fields and if necessary with a double click, change their datatypes, business metadata and so on.
Click on Save.
Now we are ready to load the data. Click on your table and then on Load button
The partition windows will be prompt. For this case, just click on OK.
Now the data loading in started, and if you click on the circle arrows, you should see FINISHED under job status column. When the load is finished, click on the settings icon under Action column and then click on View Details. Here you are able to see details information about the load
Now we can see our data with the query module or with the Catalog
