Google and Microsoft announced basic authentication deprecation for their email services in 2022. Both companies consider Basic authentication as an outdated industry standard and thus they are suggesting its customer moving to OAuth 2.0 token-based authorization. Additional details can be found here.
These changes will have a limited impact since the services that were already using SMTP with Basic authentication will not be impacted by the change.
For Google-Gmail, Basic authentication will be disabled starting May 30, 2022, and its still unclear if Google will allow it to be enabled post this date.
For Microsoft-Outlook, Basic authentication will be disabled starting October 1, 2022, but Microsoft will still allow it to be enabled as needed.
You can follow the steps provided to enable basic authentication on Exchange Online or “Less secure app access” for your Google Account.

As part of delivering explainable BI, we’re excited to announce new catalog capabilities that are now available in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS.
What's Explainable BI?
Explainable business intelligence is the concept that users will gain more confidence in using data and making decisions based on it, if they have a good understanding, or explanation, of the information’s origin.
Here's what you can anticipate:
Can access a data lineage summary that traces back to any dimension or measure within a chart to its original source
Distinction between choosing Impact Analysis (shows a downstream view of a data element’s dependencies) and Lineage (a detailed visual representation of the history of a field or data-set)
Please note: For most tenants, your administrator will need to enable the capability in the Qlik Management Console to utilize it.
