Connecting to PostgreSQL from QlikSense

Hi All,

Looking for help in regards to setting up connectivity to a PostgreSQL database from Qliksense. Could you please suggest on what is the recommended way to setup connectivity between from Qliksense to a PostgreSQL db, is it the out of the box PostgreSQL connector option that qlik provides as documented here: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/connectors/Subsystems/ODBC_connector_help/Content/Connectors_ODBC/Postgr...


installing a driver as suggested on the following post: https://community.qlik.com/t5/QlikView-Integration/Connecting-qlikview-to-PostgreSQL-with-ODBC-conne...

Please suggest. Thanks for your help.

Re: Connecting to PostgreSQL from QlikSense

Hi, both solution should work. Qlik ODBC Connector package (the built-in connector in Qlik Sense) does not require installing anything else to make the connection. Meanwhile, using ODBC driver provided by the database vendor may result in higher data load performance. So it's absolutely up to your choice.
