Precima / QlikView integration

Hi,

Would anyone happen to have any experience in integrating data from Precima Suite into PowerBI? Precima seems to be making use of QlikView, as I can send other users a link of the report, and that link contains a .qvw extension. 

 

Example of such a link:

https://reports.xxxxxx.precima.io/qvajaxzfc/opendoc.htm?document=Supplier%20Access%20Point%20Documen....qvw&bookmark=Server\BM10-00&host=QVS@Precima

 

I've tried the 'get data via web' option, but it won't work. Does somebody perhaps have any experience with getting this kind of data?

 

Thanks

Bas

Re: Precima / QlikView integration

@basroozen,

What error message do you get? Does precima suite have REST API available or have any backend databases? You can connect to databases in Power BI Desktop or connect to REST API data from web connector.

Re: Precima / QlikView integration

Hi @v-yuezhe-msft,

I don't receive any error messages. I'm just wondering whether anyone had any experience in setting a specific connection like this. I've been reading the Qlikview Rest API guidelines but for me as a non-programmer I really don't know where to start or even what specific URL I need to connect to in order to pull the data.

I'm not even sure whether it's even possible to pull the pull the data. It's this tool called Precima I need to login to, and that tool eventually pulls a Qlikview report.

 

Thanks
