Connector Factory March Release Update:
Enhanced connectors: Google BigQuery and MongoDB
Qlik has expanded the capabilities of our Google BigQuery and MongoDB connectors by providing the option for personal connections when accessing these repositories. Similar to our other enterprise connectors within Qlik Cloud Analytic (ex. Snowflake, Salesforce, Oracle, etc.), customers can now define user-specific credentials instead of the generic company identifications when connecting to Google BigQuery and MongoDB. Users can also save these credentials so they can be reused across multiple connection definitions to the same source.
New connector: SFTP
Qlik Cloud Analytics now includes a SFTP connector that will enable you to download files from, or upload to, secure FTP locations. SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) is a secure file transfer protocol that runs over the SSH protocol and can help enterprises meet HIPAA, GDPR and other regulatory rulings for file transfer compliance. Similar to other Qlik Cloud Analytics file-related connectors (SharePoint, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.), users can also use this SFTP connector to browse and drill into any folder the user has access to on the SFTP server.
Enhanced connectors: Azure SQL database and Azure Synapse Analytics
The Azure SQL database and Azure Synapse Analytics connectors now support two new authentication methods to enable a more secure authorization technique when accessing these repositories:
• The Azure OAuth method allows for single sign-on (SSO) when using the OAuth token-based authentication process
• The Azure Active Directory can be used to protect user identity and simplify the sign-in experience
