Installing and Using Qlik DataTransfer

Qlik DataTransfer is a lightweight Windows application that lets you upload data from on-premises data sources to a SaaS editions of Qlik Sense tenant without firewall tunneling. The service account owner (SAO) or tenant administrator generates an API key from the tenant, which is then used to authenticate Qlik DataTransfer. Once authenticated, you can schedule automatic data reloads or upload data manually.

Qlik DataTransfer works with the following kinds of data sources:

  • App data
  • Connection data
  • Folders

Note: It is not recommended that the Qlik DataTransfer utility be installed on a machine where QlikView, Qlik Sense or Qlik NPrinting are already installed. Instead, it should be installed on an independent windows machine with network access to the data sources or files used in uploading to Qlik Cloud Services. Please insure the installing account has administrative access on the installed machine. Finally, always use the latest version of the utility when reporting issues. Previous versions of the utility are not supported.
