Currently on Azure we are not able to directly load Parquet Files to QS.
We need additional tools like Apache Drill. So it will be a very needed feature to be able to load the data directly.
This is still in the early analysis phase and will be built for Qlik Sense SaaS, pending the analysis and subsequent architecture investigations will provide a clearer indication of its applicability for Qlik Sense Client Managed
@Ian_Crosland - that's what I assumed, thanks for confirming so quickly!
we need it for QS Client Managed.
FYI, we had the same issue for one of our customers (load parquet files from azure) so I developed a connector for this. It's beta/unfinished/missing options (no preview, load all columns, ...) and quite slow but it's doing the job, customer is happy :). Here is a sample script:
// link to azure blob storage with parquet files
lib connect to 'datalake azure';
// load all parquet files from dataiku/RCU/CUSTOMER/ in dataiku container
select * from dataiku.dataiku/RCU/CUSTOMER/;
As I said, it's quick and dirty, I'll be very happy to replace it with Qlik's one, once published, but for now...
If needed, I could share it (authentication to azure based on shared key only, shared access signature not supported)
Is there any news when will be released connector s3 parquet for qse CM and QSE saas?
Any news about that parquet file connector?
This is still in a planned state, no current ETA as the team involved working on other priority items, i will post an ETA once we get onto the next stage, currently alternatives are available via 3rd party layers and ODBC e.g. impala/Athena
Hi @Ian_Crosland - do you have an update on ETA for the parquet file connector for both CME and QSE SaaS that you could share, please?
We are planning a customer EAP in February on SaaS and the results of this will dictate the GA dates for both CME and QSE SaaS.
If you have any interest in participating in the EAP please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks @Ian_Crosland for the update. My colleague Col will be in contact with you for a follow up.
