Qlik Sense connection to MariaDB


User is able to connect to MariaDB using an ODBC connection (DSN), however the load cannot be performed as the fields are not visible in the wizard.




Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows 



As there isn't a specific connector for MariaDB, there are 2 suggested workarounds

1. The reload can be performed if the script is added manually and in case that the fields that we need to load from MariaDB are known.


LIB CONNECT TO 'mariadbdsn (domain_qvservice)';
LOAD `emp_no`,
SQL SELECT `emp_no`,
FROM employees.`current_dept_emp`;

LOAD `dept_no`,
SQL SELECT `dept_no`,
FROM employees.departments;

2. Another workaround is to use the 
open source Mariadb connector (MariaDB Connector - Latest Version) and install it as a DSN connector.
