Qlik Amazon S3 connector - Support for AWS PrivateLink

Fetch Amazon S3 data from a Qlik Sense site that has not access to the Internet for security reasons (hosted data is super sensitive).

We have no option to open the Internet proxy on these Qlik servers, therefore we cannot connect to Amazon S3 directly.

We have however setup an AWS PrivateLink for Amazon S3: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/userguide/privatelink-interface-endpoints.html 

This Qlik Sense site could connect to Amazon S3 through a LAN DNS, mapped with Amazon S3.

For this to work, we need an additional Qlik Amazon S3 connector option to specify the VPCE URL.

As of today, the public Amazon S3 URL is hardcoded in the Qlik Amazon S3 connector.

The support for AWS PrivateLink was added in the Amazon S3 connector in the standalone Web Connectors earlier this year, see online help. There are no near-term plans to extend this to the integrated connectors.
