Hello all Qlikkies!

Manage and Re-use Your QVD Investments, introducing:

New Product Edition – Qlik Data Catalyst for QVDs

  • Streamlined offering for Qlik customers that is solely focused on QVDs
  • Classifies and profiles QVD files to create a fully searchable catalog
  • Qlik users can easily find and select the QVDs they need without navigating complex folder hierarchies or relying on file naming conventions
  • Existing Qlik Data Catalyst product can already catalog QVD files plus the ability to publish QVD content to any application or BI tool

 

Enhancements to existing Qlik Data Catalyst offering:

  • Improved flexibility & performance when provisioning registered items
    • New option to publish data to Qlik Sense directly from the original source (ex. Snowflake)
    • Alternative to publishing data that was provisioned by Qlik Data Catalyst
  • Import QVD Lineage
    • Render lineage from QVD headers, at file and app level, on the QDC lineage graph
  • One-click Publish to Tableau
    • New selection in Take Action pull-down menu

This is really great! But will be the slimmed-down version for QVDs available through self-service download as you wrote in this comment? I could not find it. Thank you so much!

Does the qvd catalyst it have any API that can be used for getting the lineage data? 

Christopher_Ortega

There are API's for interacting with lineage via the Qlik Data Catalyst.  The image below shows an example lineage graph as seen in the application for a catalogued QVD.

Below is a listing of the API's related to lineage.  These are documented via Swagger within the application under the Support menu.

Thanks for your answer. I have another questions.

How detailed is the lineage information when it comes to the source. Can you see what exact query created a QVD file? Can you see what database table and fields was queried?

If yes, is this information also available through the API?

Best

Robert
