Discussion board where members can learn more about Qlik Sense Data Connectivity.
We would like to read data from Splunk as a source type and checking if anyone is already using them. I guess as per Qlik they don't officially support the Splunk ODBC connectors or provide data connectors for the same.
first point on the qlik sense server you'll need splunk odbc
the question is how splunk is setup. if all the installation of the splunk is on one machine the ODBC will work
otherwise it won't
because of the first problem we used command line tools to fetch data from splunk that we run with batch file

i manage to use splunk odbc to read data ,
but splunk ODBC only work when all splunk parts are installed on the same machine ,
in large volumes this wouldn't be the case , in my case we settled on writing the splunk query
to text file and them reading it to Qlik
Could you please throw some light on below points:
a) but splunk ODBC only work when all splunk parts are installed on the same machine -- What are the splunk parts we need to install and i believe machine you are referring to would Qlik Sense hosts.
b) we settled on writing the splunk query to text file and them reading it to Qlik -- Are you not generating sql in Qlik Sense connecting splunk odbc drivers?
Hi Jai -
There are a lot of limitations with the Splunk ODBC connector:
We actually wrote our own Splunk connector for Qlik that solves these issues and works with live searches so you can do incremental loading. Here's a link to it on Qlik Market and on our website:
