File web not existing in qliksense business cloud

Hello, I've been using qlikcloud until today and now moving to qlik sense business due to the closing of the qlikcloud.

I am using web file hosted into a ftp (in qlikcloud I had two options: upload the file or open a web file) but I can't find this option in qliksense business, there is no such connector.

Any idea?


Thank you in advance for your help

Hello, I am facing the same problem and don't have a solution. I can no longer find any of my older questions wrt Qlik Sense Business. Maybe the project has been discontinued?

seems that qlik sense business doesn't have the web file load, it works only if you buy the the enterprise version

I'm also wondering why Web Files are not available. I'm trying to read a CSV file from a Bank's website to visualize exchange rate data, but the CSV file is a bit weirdly done. With Web Files, this can be done easily, but not with a REST connection, because the first set of rows in the file is blank. Web Files automatically ignore these blank rows and I get to the data easily. But REST gives errors because the format is different for some of the rows. So now I am stuck with only 2 options:

1. download the file manually and upload the file to Qlik Cloud;

2. read the file via Qlik Sense Desktop and bypass Qlik Cloud entirely, or manually upload the QVF file after a reload.
