Questions answered in session Chat:

Q: Any Lineage connector available for Qliksense enterprise on-prem?

A: I believe the base one, Qlik Sense, is for Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows. We currently do not support QS on Kubernetes.

Q: For Qlik NPrinting reports, what is shown in Lineage?

A: Currently the reports through the Npr apps relying on the Qlik Applications data models

Q: Does the lineage show sources back into other cloud locations (i.e. S3)?

A: Yes, it shows those questions you make in any Qlik Apps and presents them as the origin of data. Right now, there are connectors for Oracle, MSSQL and Snowflake which allows you to see the origin of those sources (ie if they are views, you can see which tables they are made up of). But even if you do not have a connector for those DBs, you can still see the query and have that shown as part of the lineage.
