QlikView and OPC-UA

Hello guys,

I'm new to QlikView and I was wondering if there is any possibility to connect to an OPC-UA Server?

There might not be an integrated function for this, but there might be someone who asked himself the same question or knows a way to get machine data via OPC-UA into QlikView.

Thanks,

Stefan

... two years later ... There might be tools to expose OPC-UA data as a REST interface, which QlikView or Qlik Sense can use natively, or into a Flatfile or database. 

I solved it using a so-called Server-side Extension (SSE), that is a lightweight middleware written in NodeJS in my case, that waits for Qlik to query data via gRPC protocol and then connects to an OPC-UA server using opc.tcp:// protocall, then passes back the result to Qlik
