Qlik Sense Business - FTP/SFTP Qlik Connector

I have seen that the SFTP connector is not aviable in the Qlik Sense Business.

Does any one know when that will be available?

Is anyone aware of any progress on this one? It seems like a connector that should be there out of the box on Qlik Sense Business, especially as it was there on the old Qlik Sense Cloud For Business.

@Michael_Tarallo is this something you have visibility of timescales on?

The other connector which would be useful in Qlik Sense Business is the standard Web Connector (as opposed to REST) as this would allow a connection to Qlik Web Connectors on another server (which would be another route to SFTP).

Hi - I can't give an estimate when this will be available but we are aware of the interest in having it.

Thanks Chris. I hope it is relatively soon, as the workarounds are horrible.

As far as I know, the connector is not there on any version of Sense Cloud.

As you have an enterprise licence, you could have an on-premise instance of Sense and do the FTP retrieve there and then get the files via a service such as DropBox. This kind of kills the point of having the files on an SFTP server in the first place though. With the Hybrid cloud you should be able to refresh an app on premise and have that replicate to the Cloud, but this is not something I have seen live.

As I mentioned above, the work arounds required from not having SFTP in the cloud are not nice.

The closest I got to a solution to this is to use Amazon S3 as storage and have a task running to replicate the SFTP files on S3. These two articles may help with that:

Good luck!

Stevedark, Thank you very much. i have study to use Amazon S3 also, if a little data is ok, but if a lot of data it will make more cost.
