This month, Connector Factory has released more capabilities related to our data analytics connectors.

Increased flexibility when accessing SaaS applications and file storage services

Qlik has expanded the governance capabilities of Qlik Cloud Analytics by significantly increasing the number of connectors that can support user-defined credentials.  Instead of a generic company ID, user-defined credentials help ensure that data access will be governed based on what has already been defined in the source system for each user.  

Previously, Qlik Cloud Analytics only provided this option to some enterprise applications, such as Salesforce, and ODBC-based connectors (ex. Oracle).  Now customers can define, on a connector-by-connector basis, whether user-specific credentials will be required to access many of their SaaS applications and file storage services. 



User-defined credentials will work with all the relevant authentication options that are available in each connector (ex. OAuth, Access Key, Key File, etc.). And these personal credentials can be saved and used across multiple connection definitions for the same source. 

This new capability has been added to the following connectors:
