The Qlik Web Connectors November 2017 Release (2.28.2) is now available on the Qlik.com download page‌ (you need to be logged in to Qlik.com)

Along with a number of general improvements, this version has 4 new beta connectors added to the suite including:

  • Office 365 Mail/Contacts/Calendar
  • OneDrive v2 - which is enabled for OneDrive business accounts,
  • IBM Watson Natural Language Understanding for more text and sentiment analytics, and
  • for all of you desperate to better your fitness performance, there's even a Strava Connector

This now means that there are 47 connectors available

If you're using Qlik Web Connectors 2.2.0 and either any beta connectors or standard connectors, please read the note towards the end of this post about upgrading.

In this release no connectors were moved from a beta state to either Premium or Standard Connectors.

Some multi-source connectors have been split into individual connector, so for example in previous versions of the Qlik Web Connectors we had the Premium Qlik Sentiment and Text Analytics Connector, which required a subscription and corresponding LEF.

You will now see the following Premium Connectors listed, although they all share the same, single

Sentiment & Text Analytics subscription and LEF entry:

  • Qlik MeaningCloud Connector
  • Qlik Repustate Connector
  • Qlik Sentiment140 Connector

The Qlik RegEx Connector is now a free, Standard Connector

The following connectors have been split out but also deprecated:

  • Qlik Alchemy Connector
    • This has been replaced by the Qlik Watson Natural Language Understanding Connector
  • Qlik Saplo Connector

Other connectors that have been split out are the AYLIEN Connector and Mailbox Connector.

The Qlik script that has been generated using these previous connectors may need to be modified. Please refer to the Release Notes, for more information.

Current Users of Beta Connectors or Only Standard Connectors

As a reminder, if you are using Qlik Web Connectors 2.2.0 and either:

  • any Beta Connectors or
  • any Standard Connectors WITHOUT any Premium Connectors enabled

then these will expire on 31-Jan-2018, so you must upgrade to the new November 2017 Release (2.28.2) version as soon as possible.


The new expiry date in the November 2017 Release will be 30-Nov-2018.We also maintain a schedule here.

Hi Darren,

I'm just wondering; is there a roadmap for the OData connector? Currently it seems to import the XML in a hierarchical way instead of a relational way. For an example of what I'm talking about see: Working with OData relational data. This makes working with relational data clumsy as it requires manual work in the load script.
