We have a requirement to read data from a compressed file like .parquet and .gz format files. If we have this option will be really helpful.
Parquet file support is planned for early 2023
It would be great to read data stored primary for datalake usage, now be accessible directly in Qlik Sense.
Hi! Yes, we recently built a tool to do direct streaming of data to Qlik from Parquet files using the standard Qlik REST connector called Cloudslurp.
Just create an account and link your S3 bucket, Dropbox or upload your Parquet file. Then you can start doing SQL based queries to the file and then use the standard REST connector in Qlik to load data into your app. It has the added benefit of being able to filter down large Parquet files to smaller data sets so you can significantly reduce your app reload time.
The API call you use in the Qlik REST connector looks like this:
https://api.cloudslurp.com/data?token=YOURTOKENHERE&query=SELECT * FROM cldslp1."yellow_tripdata_2022-01.parquet";
You can copy and paste this for your exact data set by clicking on the 'Code' button:
