QVSource 1.5.4 Now Available

QV Source Blog - 20 hours 18 sec ago

We have just released version 1.5.4 of QVSource - The QlikView and Qlik Sense API Connector. This blog posts outlines the main changes.

As always, we would also recommend you read the notes on the "Change Log" tab of any connectors you are using for a comprehensive overview of changes.

Qlik Sense

Firstly, we'd like to make another quick mention of Qlik Sense, Qlik's exciting next generation in self-service visualisation and analytics, which became available for download this week. You'll be pleased to know that QVSource will work with Qlik Sense - you can read our blog post about it here.

New Connectors

Google DoubleClick for Advertisers (DFA) - We have developed this connector to compliment our Google DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP). This is an early build, so we'd welcome any comments on it.

Breaking Changes Or Possible Breaking Changes
  • Sentiment Analysis & Text Analytics Connector V2 - Unfortunately we have had to remove Sentimental (formerly Chatterbox) connectivity from our Sentiment and Text Analytics Connector. This is because Sentimental have now removed their API from Mashape and as such we are no longer able to offer it either. If you were using this API from your applications via QVSource it will unfortunately no longer work.
  • Google DFP Connector (POSSIBLE BREAKING CHANGES) We have upgraded to v201405 of API (see release notes here for items which may affect you).
  • MailChimp V2 Connector - This connector has been updated both to the new QVSource layout style but also to use the latest V2 of the MailChimp API. Unfortunately this means that it is not backwards compatible with the previous version and you will need to regenerate your load script. The new version also includes a number of new tables, for example you can now see who's unsubscribed from a list. V1 of this Connector is now deprecated and will be removed in a future version.
  • Removed Connectors
    • V1 of the Facebook Insights Connector has now been removed after a long deprecation period - please upgrade to the much improved V2 of this Connector.
    • V1 of the MongoDB Connector has now been removed after a long deprecation period - please upgrade to the much improved V2 of this Connector.
    • V1 of the Google AdSense Connector has now been removed after a long deprecation period - please upgrade to the much improved V2 of this Connector.
Updated Connectors

We've made a number of changes to some of our connectors, including:

  • Facebook Fan Pages V2 Connector - This now reflects our new connector layout making it much easier to know what parameters each table needs in order to get the data. This connector will replace the existing Facebook Fan Pages Connector, so you should upgrade as soon as possible using the instructions here. V1 of this Connector is now deprecated and will be removed in a future version.
  • General XML/JSON/SOAP Web Connector - S/FTPListFilesAndFolders has been added to the connector, making it easier to work with those locations. Quick Intelligence, one of our partners, recently blogged about using the General Web Connector to pull data from a secure web portal, where this feature was used.
  • File Transfer (FTP/SFTP) Connector - We have updated a key component of this connector and it also now supports specifying port numbers. It also has new tables to list files and folders within a specified directory.
  • Google AdWords Connector - This has been upgraded to use the latest v201406 version of the AdWords API - you can see the API change log here for any updates which may impact or be of use to you.
  • Google BigQuery Connector - the timeout has been increased to 10 mins.
  • MongoDB Connector - This has been upgraded to use the very latest MongoDB driver.

QVSource Works With Qlik Sense

QV Source Blog - July 24, 2014 - 23:45

We are pleased to see that Qlik have just launched Qlik Sense Desktop. From their press release Qlik Sense Desktop is:

"a free version of its next-generation data visualization application that delivers a simple drag-and-drop interface for business users to rapidly create interactive visualizations, reports, and dashboards. Qlik Sense Desktop is the first commercially available release from the QlikView.Next project. It includes the Qlik patented data indexing engine to give users the unrestricted ability to explore their intuition and the relationships that exist in the data, uncovering the hidden associations and insights that may otherwise be overlooked."

For existing or prospective commercial customers of QlikView and QVSource (we do not have a version of QVSource for free or personal editions of QlikView or Qlik Sense at this point in time) we just wanted to re-iterate that QVSource is fully compatible with the new Qlik Sense platform and we have just put a step-by-step tutorial on our wiki which shows how you can load data from one of the many connectors into your Qlik Sense applications.

We are also prototyping a new version of QVSource which will look and feel more aligned with the new Qlik Sense product and hope to post more details on this in the future.

QVSource - The QlikView API Connector - has over 30 connectors to various online social media and business APIs, is the highest rated product on Qlik Market and built by the winners of Qlik's Technology Partner Of The Year Award 2014. You can grab a fully functional free trial here.
