Table of Contents


The following release notes cover the versions of QlikView released in May 2022. 


QlikView May 2022 IR


What’s new in QlikView May 2022

New function for key driver analysis

The function MutualInfo() calculates the mutual information between two fields.

New option for container objects

It is now possible to hide tabs in the container object. The object will show the first non-hidden object.

Mekko chart total on top

The Mekko chart can now show totals on top of each segment stack.

QVF support

Support for the QVF file format was introduced already in the May 2021 version. With the May 2022 version the QVF format will be the default file format for new documents. The old QVW file format will still work and will be the default save format for existing QVWs.

If a server has two documents with the same base name but different extensions, the QVW will be inactivated. The meta and shared files will however be used also by the QVF.

There is no cross-compatibility between QlikView QVF files and Qlik Sense QVF files.


The QlikView Server services have been upgraded to .NET 4.8.

Persisted Doc Admin cache

Previously, the Doc Admin cache was just in memory and was erased if the QlikView Management Service was restarted. Now the cache is persisted in a database.

Email Alerts for the Tasks finished with warning

Previously, the QlikView Server have had the functionality to send an email alert if any of the tasks would fail on the reload. Now we have added possibility to also include tasks that finished with warnings.

Log collector tool

The 'Log collector' tool developed by the Qlik Support has now been integrated into the QlikView Management Console. For a clustered environment, there are some limitations: Only the logs from QlikView Server and QlikView Distribution Service are collected.

Source document tracking

The user document, created in a Loop and Reduce process, now contains information about the task name and last execution time. This is found in the document support information.


This release addresses several bugs. See below under “Resolved Issues”.

The system requirements for this release can be found under “System requirements” on the Qlik help web site.

client on these operating systems.
