SHA256 in Qlik Sense

Hi All,

I need to hash some data in Qlik Sense and I have to use hashing mechanism SHA256.

Can anyone please guide me on how to achieve this in Qlik Sense ?

Thanks and Regards,

Hi @tresesco,

I have tried with both hash256() and autonumberhash256() but it is not working. What I have read from the community is that, hash256() is a different hashing mechanism than SHA256. But I have to use SHA256 and not any other hash function.

Could you help in figuring out if it is possible to implement SHA256 in Qlik Sense ?

Thanks and Regards,

How did you read the Hash() not working for you? There is no default algorithm AON for that. But, You can simplify using the Macro function to achieve that - I am not scripting person who can divide or change into Bytes. Because it won't change Hex byte string to MIME protect key. 

I hope some others can help you.

Hi Madhuparna,

Qlik doesn't have any function for that in-built. That means, natively you would probably not be able to do that. You could use a vb code/jscript for the same or may be use an extension object for the same; anyway you have to use a similar coding to get the hashing done.

Hi @tresesco ,

Any idea on how to write the code to achieve this? I couldn't find any extension object for this, so I am a bit lost at this point.

Thanks and Regards,
