Qlik SaaS Box.com Connector

Qlik Cloud  is missing a Box.com connector to permit remote file store and load. Many of our clients use Box.com for remote file sync and share. More so than Google drive, and using SharePoint connector is simply a bad experience. Box.com is designed to be secure and like S3 a perfect fit for SaaS.  Odd to have connectors for the also rans...but not the #1 (see Gartner chart below). There is a connector for Client Managed.

 

It also means that keep Qlik can avoid a file storage bill. Many of our clients keep PDF images of trade documents in Box and link to them in Qlik Sense Business

Please advise a timeline on this.

PS Any connector should also work for Qlik Data Transfer

There is an issue with the Box authentication method, which has prevented integration of this connector in the SaaS environment. However, our team is currently working on a general update in how refresh tokens are handled, which likely will make it possible to do this. The task to integrate the Box Connector is on the roadmap, roughly targeted within the next 6-12 months.
