Hello and welcome to another session of Q&A with Qlik webinar series we are excited to have
y'all all here today and today's topic we will be covering is Qlik Sense migration
to Qlik Cloud and we hope that this will help new users to SaaS or users that are migrating
wanting to learn some, you know, tricks and tips and resources on the subject.
This is an live question and answer so initially we want you to and especially want you to
put your questions within the Q&A panel at the bottom, you know, so we will be able to answer
those questions and we'll make sure to be able to get to them. Just a few parameters to go over we cannot see and hear you but you can see and hear us that's why it's essential for you to
put those questions in the Q&A panel and if you have some resources or tips that you would like
to share with your fellow audience members, you can also add that into the chat. Also, we ask you to
keep your questions relevant to this topic as our experts cannot go over any support cases at this
time. And also go ahead and check out using this QR code for our next or upcoming future sessions
for Q&A with Qlik. Now back to why we're here. We are covering the topic once again Qlik Sense
to migration to Qlik Cloud. I'm Emmanuel Herndon and I am a digital customer success specialist
and new to the Q&A live session. My role here is to help users...help customers you know
from trial to renewals anywhere I can to enhance their customer journey and my focus right
now is webinars and videos and those resources for our customers. I am not doing this alone my
colleague Troy is helping me co-host this. Troy, will you say hello? Hi everybody I'm Troy and
co-hosting with Manny and we yeah... I largely work with webinars and helpful videos like this one. And
now to turn it over to our panelists for today our experts that have joined us
you want to introduce yourself Diksha. Hey everyone, I'm Diksha, I'm a technical learning consultant
with Qlik and I'm really happy to be here to share some learning resources with everyone.
How about you Daniele? Hi everyone, this is Daniele. I work in the
Swedish office. I've been with Qlik for nine years. I'm a senior engineer and I'm also supervising the support team that takes care of SaaS cases.
Vinay? Hey guys my name is Vinay and I've been with Qlik for about three and a half years now and I primarily support our SAS support cases.
Thank you and Stefan. Yep. Hello, I'm Stefan I've been with Qlik for 14 years. I'm a
senior Enterprise architect in pre-sales so, I support POCs in the field with our Salesforce.
Great! So, we have an excellent panel today and questions have already started coming in.
I'm going to kick it off with the first one where can we learn more about using apps in
Qlik Cloud? Diksha, do you want to take that one? Yeah, so maybe I'll just share my screen
and show some of the locations that you can find resources. Let me share...give me a minute. Sure!
Okay, let me know when you can see my screen. Yep we see it. Okay great, so let me start off with
the learning.qlik.com which is also known as The Qlik continuous classroom website. If you go onto
this website, you'll find a lot of resources are available here for free. The easiest way to go
look for any specific topic that you want to have help with, you can go to the "how do I" and you'll
find a number of videos in here. Now there are options here for you to be able to search. There's
also filters available for you to filter by SaaS or any other product that you might be looking for. So, I'm just going to show you that. If you look at Qlik Sense SaaS, you will be able to find
resources related to apps and spaces and tables there's a number of, you know, free content here
that you can go look at. Just look for the tag on the top right hand side and you'll be able to see 'free'. This is all the content that you can consume without a subscription. You will also be able to
find a lot of information on the help.qlik.com. So, if you go to help.qlik.com and you go into 'documentation' ,
you will be able to find everything you need under 'Client Managed' data analytics or Qlik Cloud. Since
we are talking about Qlik Cloud today, I'm just going to show you this page, where you will be able to see all information about maybe analyzing data or apps or everything you need.
Now what's most important here is, if you're looking to migrate your apps or users or steams,
you will be able to find a lot of helpful information under the 'Migration Center'. This is where we have collected a lot of resources step-by-step instructions and there are links
to additional videos that you can find in here as well. Let me just start off with a simple topic
of 'planning your migration', which will take you into the 'Migration Center' and on the left hand
side you have a whole lot of resources in here So, if you click on any one of these topics, for
examples 'Setting out the Qlik Cloud Migration' tools which is nothing but a set of tools available to you to make your migration process a lot more easier. These scripts have been created
so that you can just use them to move your objects from Cloud Manage into Qlik Cloud and
the whole process has been explained here with the help of resources. You have links there are links
available to videos, there are links available to additional step-by-step instructions and this page
should help you a lot with migrating items from your client managed into Qlik Cloud. Finally, I
want to take you back to the learning.qlik.com and I would just like to show you under 'the Continuous
Classroom', we have a specific learning plan which says 'Migrating to Qlik Cloud'. This learning plan
contains again similar step-by-step instructions to be able to migrate your objects from Client
Managed into Qlik Cloud and you can go through them in a step-by-step process. Now this is a
learning plan that's a work in progress, so eventually you will see that there will be more information not just for Qlik Sense, but also for Qlik View in the future. I hope that helps.
The next question that came in. What is the time frame to allow
subscriptions to email and Excel formatted attachment. Who wants to take that one?
Yeah, I don't know if we have an answer for that particularly right now I haven't seen anything specific on that in the roadmap. I don't know if anyone else has but since we don't have a product
manager represented right here so I would want to refrain from answering that, but
we can try and figure it out and get back and answer later. I'd say, we know for sure that it's
something in the plans so it's coming, but we cannot commit to any date at the moment.
Okay thank you for that. We have a next question coming in to the panelists.
When will Qlik be able to support the movement of bookmarks, personal sheets, and community sheets to the cloud when doing a migration.
Yeah, I don't know Daniele, if you have something to add on that one. I would say the same as I said before, I don't have any particular insight to that and if it is indeed a roadmap item or not.
I'm not sure there's anything about bookmarks. I haven't seen anything about bookmarks. There are ways of migrating communication...at least some
service sheets using the migration tools. If you look at... if you go to the
Migration Center migrating apps you will see that cell service sheets are also migrated
with the two. So yeah, I guess the difference there and correct me if I'm wrong, I guess the
difference is that when you actually do multi-cloud promotion of apps, you don't get
private sheets or community sheets but when you use the migration tools straight off you do
or you have the option to do right that's how I understood it at least.
Great thanks. Okay, the next question has to do with QVDs and QVFs. If they're encrypted on-prem,
will there be an issue migrating those to SaaS? I'm assuming we're talking about like
section access or just encryption not sure, but
does anybody know about that level?
I don't know the details about that. I mean, it's not clear what you mean by encrypted because
we encrypt the stuff and so we use the Qlik keys for encrypting. So, bringing it to
the Cloud it shouldn't be a problem. In the Cloud you can encrypt using with your own keys
and then it would be impossible to get the data outside if you don't have any those keys. But,
specifically normally QBDs can be brought up to the Cloud.
Yeah, I mean just to elaborate a bit what Daniel said, I mean it depends on what kind of encryption we're talking about like every every communication between both the migration tools and
a multi-cloud environment where you promote from on-prem to Qlik Cloud all that information is
being encrypted with TLS in transit meaning that it's encrypted when it
actually gets moved into the cloud. But if you have an operating system level encryption
as long as you can utilize the assets in the Qlik Sense Enterprise on Client Managed On-prem, they
will be able to move into SAS like because that encryption will just be taken care
of automatically on the OS level. But, if you have a specific encryption that needs to decrypt
before you can actually access those assets you can't move those things into the Cloud unless you actually specifically decrypt them.
But yeah, I see very few like corner cases when that happens.
Hey, thank you for that. We see a lot of questions are coming in, so we're gonna move as quickly as possible and try to answer as many as possible. And the next
question is, is there a way to ensure the named ownership of all sheets included
private sheets is preserved when migrating from on-prem to the Cloud.
Not at the moment. At the moment, this is not possible so if a private sheet is owned
by a specific person then the settings will not be maintained when moving
to the cloud. You will be able to move the sheet but then it will become accessible to anywhere.
Thank you for that. All right, the next question. What is the best way to move apps from On-prem to the Cloud? I guess kind of from a high level
people haven't gone through those learning modules yet anyone address what that process looks like.
So, I can answer that one. There is, sometimes a little bit of misunderstanding about
using hybrid deployments Qlik Sense Enterprise. So, you can deploy apps from Qlik Sense Enterprise
to the Cloud but in that case it's not a migration, it's just you basically make the
apps available on the cloud for consumption. The actual migration can be done in several ways.
We have said already a few times, we have made up sets of scripts that help with the
migration and that allows for instance migrating...automatically migrating sheets and everything
but you can also just simply upload the app to to the to the hub and that's that's also fine.
Okay, thank you. The next question is, is there any way to bulk download
script execution and user script logs related to their Qlik Cloud tenants for
ingestion and analytics in custom dashboards?
They have bulk download of session logs. So, I guess the API for Qlik Cloud is pretty extensive, so I guess that you
would gain access to the audit logs in Qlik Cloud which is closest to session logs, if anything,
So, I would, without actually looking, if that is a public API or not I would say yes.
But, I wouldn't swear on the granularity at this point, sorry.
I mean you can only look at the logs at the app level not at the sheet level or
like which visualization has been opened or you know accessed by a particular user
we can only see in the logs like which user has opened which app or access the app but
not at the sheet level at this time.
Just to make it clear, if you feel that you would like a feature
just don't hesitate to log the idea into ideation, because our current ideation portal is
monitored constantly by your product team and there is our product managers could reply you
right away if something is on the timeline. Or they could gather information and if other users
are also looking into something we definitely can consider it including in the product. Lots
of implementations that we've done in the product came from the ideation page,
so whenever you feel something is needed go ahead and publish an idea there. There's
really lots of action on those pages from from our internal Qlik team and my product team.
Thanks for that. Okay so the next question.
What are security differences between Sense behind a company firewall and SaaS? Are there
zero trust solutions for company external users to only see certain things in the SaaS environment.
Section access might be related to that one...and, if one uses multiple tenants to solve this, what is
the cost and effort of maintaining multiple tenants in SaaS. So, a kind of multiple parts that question, let's focus on the first one --the security differences between sense and SaaS.
When it comes to security, we have several important certifications. Our product is also certified for government use,
so we are quite... from the US and also we have certifications from the European side. We have
a specific page that I can share in the chat... just a second so that everybody can see that.
Oh, I don't know is there a way to type an answer... I guess I can do it here.
And you can get all the information about security there. When it comes to allowing for
instance external users and granting only certain access that can can be achieved with the
different levels of solutions, section access is definitely something that can
be used. You can integrate it with your own IDP for instance that allows and
access to external users only to specific spaces or specific apps and you can integrate
the two things together. Definitely section access is very important when it comes to that.
Yeah, I I'd want to add to that, if we talk about the first part of that question the difference between Sense on-prem or client managed and SaaS is the way that we handle
authorization and authentication is that the SaaS handles that by an identity provider
need to be brought by the customer and that needs to be an OIDC compliant one which is you know covers quite a lot which you know identity providers and mechanisms out there in the field.
And, whereas by doing that you basically have the flexibility of actually working
with the authorization mechanisms in your own directory and that will then be able to be
easily translated into SaaS. So, I'd say it's not as granular so as would you
be used to with you know a lot of security rules but it's easier to maintain in SaaS
and that that will transfer through to providing access to different users either
on a raw data level with section access or just asset level and basically access to spaces
or or apps. And yeah, it's really hard to say the cost and effort in maintaining multiple tenants
but you can't have multiple tenants and if you are interested in running a model like that you should engage with your local sales rep and they can square you also
exactly what it means to do that there's tooling around that as well.
Okay thank you. The next question is, When is N-printing going to be able on SaaS? And I'm
going to answer that, we did do a session for Reporting Services and I would recommend
going to go see that recording that did answer that question. So, I would recommend that.
I'll just share my screen so people can find that, so this is on Qlik Community. If you go to
Events Q&A with Qlik, you'll find this, where you can find all of our upcoming
events and previous events and here's where you can find the recording of last month's session; which addresses that exact topic -- all the capabilities of Qlik Cloud Reporting. And it's
pretty much everything almost everything you can do in Nprinting, you can do in Cloud reporting. It's
just not exactly a migration sometimes you have to map that out but the product manager
and one of our premier experts, Johnny Poole, was on that, so give a recording a listen to learn more.
All right, the next question. Is bring your own key implemented?
I'm not quite I understand that one. Does anyone else understand that question? Yeah, it is...I mean customers can start using the bring your own key. It's a complex
process it's not something that can be done by anyone but it's definitely something that can be
done. So, you need someone with the expertise on the matter. You might
want to engage professional services because we've been working a lot with those things.
It's important to know that if you already have a tenant with the applications and anything on that,
you won't be able to add... to enable bring your own keys on that one because then you won't be
able to see your current application. So, you will need to talk with your account manager and have
a discussion about how to best approach it if to create a new tenant have that one with bring your
own keys and then start migrating stuff or getting assistance with them in the tenant and
then filling it up again. I said the moment you encrypt stuff your your decryption
Keys you wouldn't be able to access the old apps that are already encrypted. So, if you
want to do that please reach out to your account manager and there will be solutions from that.
Okay thank you. This next question is a two-part question what are the best practices for migrating detailed security concepts of Qlik Sense on Windows to the Cloud?
Is there a road map to extend the current option in terms of security?
I know Stefan talked about that a little bit, did you want to try and elaborate? Yeah, I did I mean there is no...
that you usually doesn't work like that. I mean if you have a directory already
like an active directory, one way or another, you can find a way to
to look that up to our IDC compliant like for example if you're using Azure
or something like that. That will apply the same in SaaS as it does in your current environment. I mean the way that you will Implement like enforce those ACLS will be different, but I mean if you
have an existing directory that is compliant with OIDC, that's going to work the same way. If
you don't there will be a way for you, a manual way that you will need to
translate that into whatever authentication methods that you choose to use in SaaS.
Great thanks! Okay, the next question. The migration topic on the continuous
classroom, is that available only to users with a subscription.
No. All of that is free, so if you are looking at the learning plan on the Continuous Classroom
that's free. If you're looking at any other courses related to
Qlik Cloud, some of them are free and some of them are not. So, like I said when you do your search take a look at the tag there's a free tag at the top of every course but
as far as migration is concerned the content that we have is all free for everyone to use.
Okay, thank you. These are some great questions. All right the next question, do you recommend
using Data Transfer or Qlik data Gateway when migrating apps to Qlik sense SaaS?
I'm guessing what they mean data transfer or Qlik data Gateway. Yeah, probably
Daniele, you were about to say something. So, yeah I mean I just want to explain the differences
between the two tools. Qlik Data Transfer was the first tool that we made available for
transferring stuff directly from basically a local computer to the cloud. It was not meant to be
a really Enterprise solution, it was more like a developer that wanted to push stuff to the cloud
so, it was a little bit raw in the process but it's still has some functionalities that
we don't have in data Gateway data. Gateway is the Enterprise solution, it's gonna get more and
more functionalities while Qlik data transfer at the moment, we don't we don't intend to extend
it anymore. It's just there and it can be used there's going to be security patches and
more, but if data Gateway can do the things that you need to do then the recommendation is to use
data Gateway. If for some reason the functionality is still not available there because you will
need to use a data transfer like for monitoring folders and,then in that case you will need to
use the Qlik data transfer or you can use both for the time being until the data Gateway becomes
more complete and you'll be able to do everything through for that one. Yeah, can I just.... Again, sorry
Daniele, this is not because, I know that you know this, but I want to make a clarification because I've seen a lot of confusion about this in the field. Like, Data gateways today there
are two of them. There's a data movement Gateway and then there's the direct access Gateway. And I
want to be clear on the fact or we should be clear on the fact that none of those actually move apps.
They don't promote apps or move apps or migrate apps but data movement is basically to,
in a flexible way, move data that is being locked on-prem into either a Cloud data
warehouse or into Qlik Cloud as you know QVD files. And the direct access is basically to
allow SaaS apps to fetch data from on-premise sources in a kind of a natively reload way.
So, we should be clear that that is what the Gateway is doing currently, so for migration
data Gateway is not the "silver bullets". Thanks for clarifying, that it can be confusing.
The next question is, there a recommended framework or to-do list for a successful migration?
And I don't know if we want to revisit the Migration Center for that perhaps.
I think it's the best it's the best thing because the Migration Center contains all the information that is needed. I'll just show that one more time. So, that's...
you Google find this... If you Google it migration Center Qlik and it takes you to this.
If you can put the link in the chat that might help as well Troy. That's a great idea, thank you.
Yeah so, I'll post this link in the chat and also put it make it available with the recording of this once we post the recording on Qlik community but here we go.
Everybody should be able to see that now. And yeah, this has all a lot of really great documentation on everything you need to do in the steps and breaks it down different parts.
Manny you want to take the next one? This is another N-printing question and says, How can the print
function be integrated to N-printing? And I would say, Troy showed before
the session on Cloud Reporting and I would recommend going to look at that. You can
find it in Community under... he's going to show us. Yeah, and I'll just post that link as well,
but go to 'community', 'blog and events', and then you would have 'Expert Lead'
...'events' and then you can go down and you can find past recordings and then go
there. You will see 'Making the move to Qlik Cloud reporting and we did talk about that there.
Great! All right next question is it possible to update an app in manage
space via API so we can maintain measures across apps? We can do
this in On-prem version but I haven't found a way to do it in the Cloud yet.
So, updating an app in a managed space via API. Anybody got any ideas on that one?
So, manage spaces are basically meant only for consumption and for during
...for showing to end user some that have been developed somewhere else. What do you mean by update? If you mean a reload, the app it should be possible to read the API call
but to change anything inside it, that shouldn't be the way. You should always change
the source up and then publish the changes to the manager, if I understood the questions correctly.
That's how I interpret it, so good answer. I'll add again, sorry. It's me adding again. I'll
just add one thing. Yeah, I mean Daniel is 100 correct. I would point out like you
know look into application automation for workflows like this instead of using the APIs. Maybe, APIs has a use case for sure but if you want to do a low code option
look into Qlik Application Automation, where you can actually do stuff like this as well.
Okay, next question. The reassignment of sheets is a big issue
can you import sheets by pulling the binary but... or you can import sheets by pulling the binary but then you cannot reassign those to users?>
The reassign of sheets, anybody want to address that one? Yeah, I mean we said it
already before. The moment you bring sheets from a private app to the Cloud and from my On-premise app to the Cloud, there is no way to make making them private again. So,
that is a current limitation. Feel free to log an idea so that our product management knows
about it. There might be already one if there is one just add the comment or like it and wish
for that, because product management want to hear that kind of information, those kind of
questions; those kinds of requests. And, the more we get the more we know what people want.
That's great. The next question, is about Qlik View which isn't quite on
topic but I'll read it. How would you approach migrating from Qlik view to
Qlik Sense SaaS? Most documentation I find all relates to Qlik CM and Qlik SaaS or Client
Manage and Qlik SaaS or Qlik View to Qlik Cloud managed. I would like to point out that
there was a Techspert Talk, another webinar that Qlik does, on migrating Qlik View apps to Qlik
Cloud. We addressed this topic specifically, I'll share that and post the link for you to review
but that was again Johnny Poole talking about that topic. So, here's something
you can review and share but he dives into that name in demos...some tools that
make that process a lot easier so there's a good resource for you if you're focused on Qlik View.
I can mention very quickly that you are able to publish a to perform the from the publisher
to Qlik Cloud for consumption only so once it's a cloud you're not going to be able to
do anything is like having a source document in the publisher and then published to the access
point. So, customers users will be able to see the apps
consume them but not the editing the script or anything. If you want to do a migration,
then you will need to do an actual migration to a Qlik Sense up and there we have tools for
doing that at least some things that can be done easily. Then, of course, some
things will need to be done manually but there's definitely some tools so
it's basically migrating from Qlik view to Qlik Sense and then move the app to the cloud. But the
the webinar that we have the Techspert one is pretty good so I recommend watching it.
That's good you point out that capability you can publish Qlik View apps to Qlik Sense hub
and the Cloud
Manny, take the next one. Yes. here's a question. How to use functionalities like comments, alerts, pins on home page
Etc, with extension objects like viz-lib? I hope, I pronounced that correctly.
I don't know if this is... I don't I there are some limitations when it comes to what
you can actually do with objects that are you know built with extensions I don't know Daniele, if you have particular insight into this, in that sense? I mean as Qlik support,
we don't support third-party tools so the recommendation is always go to the vendor of
the of the app and see what they say. Some like comments alerting these
are things that Qlik Cloud can do without having an extension. I just want to point out.
Yep that's correct! So, there might be differences... Yeah, there might be differences with
extension so there are differences. I actually can't say for Viz-lib specifically but I'm
guessing that there are and I don't know of any changes on that area, we can look it up.
Yeah, I remember that they a Qlik partner and some of there... Yeah, they have a very like...a very nice set of extensions very powerful.
So yeah. I think some of those capabilities have been already adopted into the product
Next question sometimes our customers need to distribute app from on-prem to SaaS. The
prerequisites to do that is the signed license key on the same or both environments but in my
case the environment the sign license key is not the same as it is on my on-prem with the
sign license key with multi-cloud enabled. Is this the case can I distribute apps to SaaS? Yes.
The licenses don't have to be the same. It's just that the license should be a multi-cloud
license in the on-premise and the SaaS license can be a different one. You should be able to
set up the multi-cloud license and then use the distribution
documentation we have and then distribute the app from the on-premise to the cloud.
Yeah, they need to have multi-cloud tagging on both of the licenses. The many issues with that is that then you will end up using two licenses
for the same users so if you have a say in the same user that accesses both environments
they will consume one analyze the license on one license key and they're gonna use another
license on the other key. You'll end up at the moment at least where we have the solution
with the reducing this kind of access for users with then you'll end up in in that scenario.
When you have the same sign license key and you synchronize users via the same
IDP then the same user accessing apps in both environments will only consume one license.
Okay thank you. Next question: Is there a plan to allow exporting storyboards to PDFs in SaaS as you can do in Enterprise?
I remember that question was actually addressed and that "Making the move to Qlik Cloud Reporting
Q&A session we had last month. I was just trying to skim through the transcript to see what
our experts on that said. So, I don't remember exactly but I definitely recommend checking
out that recording because I know that it was addressed and that's a bit more of a
roadmap product manager questions.
And again, if you're wondering about something in the roadmap
login an idea on the Ideation page and product manager. If product management knows that
something in the is in the roadmap they will answer basically right away saying,
"This is in the roadmap". That's a great tip. Don't hesitate to do that.
The next question: I wonder about QVD path including folders and subfolders
do you have a file notation or AI utility or documentation to transform the folder subfolder
path to a QVD on a Qlik cloud storage?
There's no tooling that I know of for QCS storage like native storage in
QCS for data files storage...there's no folder support at this time. I know that there's talk
about that but you can simulate folders by naming the like actually naming the files as paths but
which I wouldn't recommend but I would say stay tuned you know for changes this year and again
you know keep an eye on the on the Ideation Pages for stuff like that. But no there's no final
tooling for that because of the fact that we don't have folder support today in QCS data files.
Okay thank you. Next question: Will Qlik Cloud support access to on-prem files, Microsoft
SQL database API calls? I mean the answer is yes. The Qlik date direct access Gateway does
that today basically so I mean that yeah that's that's one way of actually directly accessing the
data in and a database like that from SaaS. And I'm not going to go into detail exactly how it works
so there are assets that explains that but yeah that's possible by two ways: either you promote the
data from on-prem up to qcs or a data warehouse or you reach in with the direct access Gateway
so the answer is, yes. And you can also open the firewall and that's the connection to
to your database whatever. So, you can also...we have instructions on what
to open in firewalls. We recommend using modern firewalls that allow opening host
names and not just IP addresses because the IP addresses change but you can definitely connect to local sources directly from Qlik Cloud if you open the firewall.
All right! So, we've got a lot of questions coming in. I don't know if we'll have time to get to them all but we'll keep going.
What actually happens when you run the provided .BAT file script after generating the CSV files?
Does the app which has been selected for migration go to the personal space or manage space or both?
Does anybody want to address that? I'm pretty sure it goes through your personal space when you're initially do a migration. Yeah, so that's what happens when you migrate it. It does
not go to a manage space it cannot do that it will go into the personal space of the owner of the app.
Okay thank you! The next question: On-prem, when a professional
user was leaving the company I was using the QMC app object
section to give myself ownership for their sheets to advise them and assign
them the useful ones to the other colleagues how can I do that in SaaS?
To managing apps after someone leaves.
I'm pretty sure that's possible in the QMC. Anyone with more experience want to address that one?
I'm you know I'm thinking, sorry. No problem
I know it's something that we had discussions about before, migrating content from one user
to the other. I think it's something that has been discussed from being in the timeline. But,
in the roadmap I don't know the latest details about that but there was some discussion
about migrating context from one user to another so, again look please log an idea
and since we don't have the answer right now and then someone will get back to you about that.
All right, next questions kind of an easy one. Will Qlik Cloud support, section access?
It does already, yes.
Nice and Easy
All right, next question. Client managed encryption is about and they put in a link. Oh... I think
you're just trying to help us out here. Client manager inscription and there's a link here that
was posted to us directly from the Qlik help site documentation so server security data encryption.
Okay! Okay next question. If there is a data governance needed in our
business for example data Sovereign rules preventing data being moved processed outside
of our region, can we still migrate to the Qlik cloud?
So, the tenants are in a specific region so if you have a U.S tenant it's going to be a U.S
based server. If it's EU, it's going to be a European based server.
If you are afraid that users are going to download stuff and put it somewhere else then
you will need to restrict users from doing such kind of actions like, using section
access from our preventing downloads and those kind of things. You will need...there are definitely
restrictions but the moment the user is able to download an app for instance or download the data
there is no way that we can stop it from taking it anywhere else, so what we recommend in
that case is use Section Access and other audits policies on your users about what they're doing.
Great! Next question: for third-party extensions we're currently able to test
them in new versions and our Enterprise test environment before we upgrade in Cloud. Is
it possible an extension could unexpectedly break, since the upgrades happen automatically?
Anyone want to address that one, when it comes to third-part extensions?
I wasn't really aware of any third-party extensions that apply to Qlik Cloud. I mean, you can apply extensions to Qlik Cloud but updating automatically, I'm
not aware of that. You will need to upload the new version of the extension.
Yeah, no that's correct. I mean you can't expect a full feature parity and behavior
of extensions between Client Managed and SaaS today. So, you know you are going to have to do that validation in one tenant or another in in SaaS.
Okay, thank you. Next question: we have some specific use case On-premise on Qlik
N-printing and we generate multiple broadcasts on Excel, what can be a good solution to
move it on the Qlik Cloud. They say they already have Qlik Automation and look
and look at Qlik Enterprise reporting. Not really understanding that question but
maybe y'all understand it. So generating multiple broadcasts on Excel.
I mean, as we said we don't have currently future priority between
and N-printing and actually Cloud. There are things that we have on Qlik Cloud that we don't have in
N-Printing and vice versa. The plan is to add more and more of the features of N-printing to
to the cloud but we never know...we don't know at the moment if we have complete full parity.
What you can do if you have questions about... it's difficult to answer the questions of this
kind in this forum. It's difficult to know without knowing what you're doing and how you're doing it. What we recommend when you have questions about how to do stuff post in
the Community. Just put as many details as possible. And on the Qlik Community, we have Qlik employees
in different kind of fields that look at the Community and we also have a large user
base of customers that have been doing the same things you might need to be doing right now,
and they've been doing it in the past so they have experience and they're willing to share how to do things. So, the Community is a great place whenever you don't know what's the best way to
approach something. Just post in community and you you'll get that. Excellent tip Daniele! But I
think the person was on the right track because I believe if I remember seeing some Qlik Automation
for exporting things to Excel. Yeah, they're on the right track. I mean, I
would say you know stay on the track that you're all and explore the features of Qlik Application Automation which basically contains a reporting capabilities for
Qlik Cloud today. So yeah, just keep at it and keep an eye on the community.
All right, next question. I'm head of a Customer Success at a reseller in Brazil and I'm at the Forefront of initiatives to engage customers for SaaS recent questions and challenges.
Most customers use integration with IDP mainly, Azure AD but since Microsoft is disabled simple
authentication some Automation and Reporting functions do not work due the need for multiple
or multi-factor authentication. Is there a roadmap for this, for multi-factor Authentication?
I don't know who want to address that. Well, so we have had several discussions about the SMTP in
particular so sending things via email via Microsoft. And the decision that was taken
by product management is that since Microsoft discouraged using their SMTP for mass mailing we
decided not to implement Advanced authentication for those Solutions.
One of the reasons is that we don't want to Qlik and Qlik IP
addresses have been marked as spam ware because maybe people generate thousands of reports,
so Microsoft could say you're not allowed to do that because it's forbid it's forbidden by
our policies. So, what we recommend in this case is to use a third-party tool that is specifically
purpose for mass mailing. There are several different competitors you can
just check about the one that is works for you. We for testing purposes, we recommend
using send grid because they have a free tier which can be used for a certain amount of
emails that can be sent daily. I don't remember the details about that but if you
have any other third-party tool that you would like to use feel free to use that. We
are discussing about implementing advanced implication for those solutions but at the
moment there is no plan of doing it for Microsoft for the reasons that we described Microsoft Internet policies discourage using their SMTP servers for mass mailing.
Okay thank you. I think this question has been answered before... asked and answered before but
we can just go over it one more time. Is there a tool recommended for migration, if any?
Diksha, you want to address that one more time? Yep! Sorry, my screen got stuck occasionally. Yep so, if you go into the help Migration Center
you can download the migration tools there that has a lot of help for you to migrate
your apps and users and spaces streams to spaces um so definitely try and use that.
Great, that's here and we posted that link and we'll post it along with recording. We're running
a little on time, so we'll see how many last minute questions we can get to. Users need to duplicate
public sheets, private sheets made public to their private sheets again after migrating apps to Cloud,
is this the easiest way to do that or what's a better way to do that, I guess?
I got a little confused in that question so does anyone want to address that.
Holding sheets private sheets made from link to Cloud to have their private sheets again.
Yeah, I mean as we said previously, when you migrate some an application with
from Client Manage to the Cloud you will need to make the sheets public And
there is no way of remaking them private so the solution in this case, if they want to keep them private and make changes to that is: to duplicate them and work on
them as a duplicate. At the moment there is no way of reassigning public stuff to users.
I kind of feel like we're getting close to the end here, so I just want to let everybody know that
our next session will be March 7th that's going to be 'New to Qlik Cloud'. We had
lots of great questions today. Thank you everybody for coming and
sending in your questions. Hopefully, we were able to address as many of them as we could. We'll see if we can take a few more offline and post those answers with recording.
Here is a QR code to a survey about today's session, we hope you enjoyed it. And we hope
you sign up to attend sessions in the future. We'll also be having a second session in March
and thank you very much everybody for your participation today we really appreciate it and thank you to our excellent panelists. We always appreciate getting experts
like y'all, to join us so we'll see how many of these we can address and
written form and offline. Thank you all for attending have a great rest your day!
