How to Share Files with Qlik Support


How to Share Files with Qlik Support

When transferring or uploading files to Qlik Support, you have a number of options to choose. Note that files are deleted with compliance to GDPR and data privacy laws.


Upload directly to your Support Case

This is our preferred method. Your Support Case allows you to upload an unlimited number of files, each up to 2GB in size.

You have this option directly inside the Support Case and Case Chatter. See Fig 1.

If the files are larger than 2GB, or access to the Support Portal file upload is blocked, you can request a OneDrive link from your Support representative. 



(not recommended)

The Qlik The FTP can be accessed by native FTP clients or by a web-based thin client. The server is accessed with generic credentials, but the logged in user can only see files related to the ongoing session. This means that there is no risk that customers or partner can see each other's files.


  • The web client has a maximum file transfer size. The current limit can be seen in the client upload page.
  • Prefix all file names with the support case number to make file linking to the case easier
