I have a question for you: is that possible to create containers or use QDF scripts stored in cloud drives like Google Cloud Storage, Dropbox etc.?
Thanks a lot!
@bmenicucci You can upload Qvc.qvs to a cloud storage or Qlik Cloud datastore and then reference it in your script like:
Or alternatively paste the Qvc.qvs content into your script.
Hi Brunello, there is ongoing work in extending QDF to work with QS in cloud. but It's already possible to run qvs scripts from external storage, as seen below where you first need to create a file data connection to your storage (OneDrive - account) best is to use a space for this (SpaceName) and assign users access to this connection.
SET vG.SharedBasePath='lib://SpaceName:OneDrive - account/QDF_SaaS/Shared/';
Hope this helps? Regards Magnus
Hello @Magnus_Berg , thanks for your reply!
Indeed I am able to run "InitLink.qvs", however the problem seems to be (in my case, at least) that it is unable to identify a proper container to start with. In the following screenshot you can see the script I'm using, that is always returning "
Hello @Magnus_Berg ,
after having played a while with QS Saas, I've found out that the problem is related to the OneDrive limitation (indeed this is true for all other cloud storages, such as GCP, GDrive etc.) in using wildcards and also, I'm afraid is not possible to load the list of "folders" like we do in a Windows environment.
For your reference, check the enclosed screenshot where you can see the given error. Is there any progress in extending QDF to QS Saas? Thank you so much
Hi Brunello, thanks for your response and willingness to help out. I will release the current dev version in GitHub soon as I can, need to clean up some things. My thought is like this:
QDF containers will work with both Spaces (in product) and containers (in any cloud storage).
I will share the scripts I am developing with everyone
I had some personal problems and ended up staying away from QlikCommunity for a while, now my daughter has just been born too, I'm having some sleepless nights. Sorry for this time away, but I'm coming back now 🙂
The solution we're using still has some issues, but I'll prepare a post to explain what we're doing and also share all the QDF changes that were made.
Hello @Magnus_Berg ,
I'd need a clarifications on your previous answer:
Thanks a lot for your support,
