Possible to connect to PostgreSQL in Cloud Business?

Hi there,

i am a little confused about the connectors that are available to Qlik Sense Cloud Business. Am i able, beside MS SQL Server, to connect to a remote Database such as postgreSQL? Via ODBC? Does the daily data refresh work with it?

Thanks in advance

Hello Fabian,

At this time - only MS SQL is available - however there are plans to add more connectors to this ODBC connector package.

Qlik Sense Cloud Business currently has:

REST, MS SQL, Salesforce, Web File (coming soon)

and Web Connectors:

This is quite disappointing; I had wrongly thought that our tests in Qlik Sense Desktop could be easily translated to Qlik Sense Business. When can we expect the connectors to be released?

Re: Possible to connect to PostgreSQL in Cloud Business?

Hi Nicolas - shortly - I was just informed this morning during a briefing - I don't have a date, but I was told new connectivity - including Oracle and PostgreSQL will be available via the ODBC package - similar to what is used for MS SQL with Qlik Sense Cloud Business. So technically any app from Desktop can be uploaded to Qlik Sense Cloud and shared - you just would not be able to REFRESH or RELOAD that app in Qlik Sense Cloud - if the connector was not available. With Qlik Sense Enterprise - the same connectivity exists. Qlik Sense Cloud requires a bit more finesse before activating many of the connectors. HTH

Re: Possible to connect to PostgreSQL in Cloud Business?

Hi Mike, thanks a lot for your very quick response. I am glad to hear that it will shortly be released. As you mention, I can already reupload my dashboard from Qlik Sense Desktop to Cloud; I was only interested in Qlik Sense Business for the automated data refresh. We will stick with Cloud and we will keep an eye on the next releases!

Best regards,

Nicolas
