Qlik Sense Desktop and http digest authentication

Hi everybody,

I'm new with Qliksense Desktop.

I'm trying to open an XML file, as datasource, on a server. Normally, I know, it's something very simple.

But the file is on a server with http digest authentication configured. In fact, in a web-browser for example, it would show à pop-up asking the user and password when accessing the file. Obviously with Qliksense it doesnt work : it doesn't ask me for a user and password at all and receive back only http 401 error data.

How can I access this file ? Is there a way ? I wanted to set-up a custom connector but I'm unable to find the QVX SDK 2.1. Where can I download it ?

The latest version of QVX SDK (2.1) is available on the Qlik Download site.

Version 2.1 available only for existing Qlik Sense Customer or Partner as soon as QVX SDK 2.1 is a Qlik Sense's component.
