Qlik Cloud April 2024: what’s new



1. Add links to straight tables and pivot tables

You can now format dimension columns to display values as clickable links in the Straight table and the Pivot table, both in the Visualization bundle.

2. Background color opacity

The color picker gets an opacity control to make it easy to adjust the transparency of the color with a slider. This is convenient for making the sheet background shine through, or make stacked charts more elegant. As a bonus, you can now also paste a hex color code with or without #.

3. Tabular reporting in managed spaces

Tabular reporting tasks can now be developed and configured against Qlik Cloud applications published in managed spaces. The Qlik add-in for Microsoft Excel now allows for connection to apps located in managed spaces for report template authoring, if required. Published apps will carry forward any distribution list definitions in the load script and will use managed space data source configurations for distribution list update. All other task elements of the reporting task can be created in the managed space to allow for app/space specific configurations.

4. Sheet navigation buttons moved

When hiding the sheet title, the sheet navigation buttons will be available in the selection bar instead of being hidden.

5. New data gateway version notification

Users who create data gateways in the Management Console can now receive a notification whenever a new data gateway version becomes available for download. The “New data gateway version is available” notification can be found in the Management Console under Profile settings > Notifications >Data gateways.

6. Refresh and change dataset for new AutoML experiment version

AutoML now enables users to change or refresh a dataset used for an experiment version from the catalog. This allows for changes in the feature list between versions and for updated rows to be used for training such as for retaining a model following evidence of drift.

7. New Direct Access gateway version

Direct Access gateway 1.6.4 introduces new functionality as well as enhancements to existing functionality.

  • This version introduces the ability to view Direct Access gateway log files in the Management Console and share them with Qlik Support if needed. Under normal circumstances, there is no reason to view the log files, but should you experience repeated failures or other issues, the log files will often help pinpoint the cause.

  • Customers can now install Direct Access gateway silently, which is useful if you need to install Direct Access gateway on several machines throughout your organization.

  • When a reload session expired, a DirectAccess-1012 error would sometimes occur. Now, Direct Access gateway will try to keep the reload session alive by pinging Qlik Cloudmore frequently.

This month’s new updates focus on a new data connection interface, another new Data Movement Gateway with newly supported operating systems, and new commands for its general use (e.g. stop, start, and general Gateway status check).Read more here>

1. Reloading tables

You can now manually reload selected tables from most data tasks, including transform and data mart tasks. This is useful when you need to recover tables with a data error, or if you simply want to refresh the table content. All data task types now offer the ability to execute a reload operation on selected datasets without needing to recreate the task. Datasets in current and downstream data tasks will be reloaded the next time they are run.

2. Additional SaaS application connectors

We’re continuing to expand the connectivity of Qlik Cloud Data Integration with a new group of connectors that just got released. These connectors will enable you to gather business data from more applications that focus on finance, advertising, and human resources as well as other subjects. By eliminating the need for custom connectors to access these sources, Data Engineer productivity is increased and Data Consumer’s time to insight is decreased.

3. Improved create connection interface

This means that regardless of whether it’s a source, target or application, users will have a similar, streamlined interaction. This includes improved searching and filtering capabilities along with displaying all recently selected connectors.
