Store into sftp

Hi,

Is it possible to store a qvd or txt file into a sftp location from Qlikview ?

Thanks!

Store into sftp

David,

I had a requirement for this functionality about a year ago (so the situation may have changed with v10) and from what I could find it isn't / wasn't possible to export to FTP/SFTP.

As a work around I exported the .qvd's locally and then used ScriptFTP kicked off via a batch file to upload to the SFTP site; ScriptFTP then downloaded them at the other end.

www.ScriptFTP.com - really useful and not too expensive either; by far the best option when I was looking.

As I said; it was last year when I looked into this so QV10/11 may address this issue.

Hope that helps,

David,

Like Lt Columbo: 'Just one more thing...':

In the script editor try checking the 'Use FTP' checkbox under the 'Data From Files' area and then select table files; this seemingly allows you to connect to an FTP site - no idea whether it supports SFTP like ScriptFTP or if it allows uploads or just downloads.

All the best,

Re: Store into sftp

Just to say we are now working on an SFTP Connector which should be in QVSource soon. Let me know if you would like advanced access to try it out:

SFTP File Transfer Connector For QlikView - QVSource - The QlikView API Connector (Docs)


For QVSource users, our File Transfer Connector supports both downloading and uploading files to/from QlikView with both FTP and Secure FTP (SFTP) Servers.

File Transfer Connector For QlikView (SFTP (Secure FTP) & FTP) - QVSource - The QlikView API Connect...
