Qlik Sense is a platform for creating visual analytics, which can be used to create interactive dashboards and mashups. It provides visual analytics features without the need of programming or IT skills. Qlik Sense enables organizations to better understand their data and make decisions that improve business performance.
Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS. is a web service that provides a distributed queue for storing messages as they travel between computers. Amazon SQS is reliable, highly scalable, and costs very little. One of the main benefits of Amazon SQS is that it allows developers to build messaging-based applications without worrying about the complexities of message tracking.
Integration of Qlik Sense and Amazon SQS can be done in many different ways. I will describe two of the most common ones. using the Qlik Sense datasource, and using Qlik Sense with Amazon Web Services (AWS.
Using the Qlik Sense datasource
Integrating Qlik Sense with Amazon SQS can be done by simply adding a datasource pointing to the Amazon SQS endpoint. This will enable connecting Qlik Sense to any Amazon SQS queue. The datasource can be set up for each visual, so it allows retrieving message data from the queue directly in the visual. The datasource also allows changing the number of messages in the queue and deleting messages in the queue. This allows you to change and delete messages in flight in real time.
The datasource is available in the settings menu of every document in Qlik Sense. This is shown in figure 1:
Figure 1. Settings menu of a document in Qlik Sense with the datasource available
The datasource contains a number of fields defining how it connects to Amazon SQS. These are shown in figure 2:

Using Qlik Sense with AWS
The easiest way to use Qlik Sense with AWS is by using one of the pre-built AWS apps for Qlik Sense, which are part of the Qlik Sense App Store. These apps take care of configuring the connection between Qlik Sense and AWS, so you just have to install them on your document. The fplowing apps are available:
Amazon S3 Import/Export – Use this app to upload documents directly to an Amazon S3 bucket or to download documents from an Amazon S3 bucket. You can also use it to move data from an Amazon S3 bucket to other locations, such as an Amazon Redshift cluster or another Amazon S3 bucket. All you have to do is specify the location of your Amazon S3 bucket, specify the source documents, and you’re ready to go. You can specify how often you want to run this app, what action you want to perform, and how often you want to check for completed tasks. So, you can set it up once and let it run automatically on a daily basis, if that’s what you prefer. This app is free and available on the Qlik Sense App Store. There’s also an advanced version called Amazon S3 Import/Export Advanced . The advanced version adds mapping functionality, so it can derive cpumn names from JSON objects to import data into Qlik Sense. It also adds encryption functionality, so it can encrypt your data before uploading it to Amazon S3. This makes sure that nobody else has access to your unencrypted documents while they’re stored on Amazon S3. This advanced version is $1 per month and requires a separate license key. To find out more about this advanced version, see “ Using Qlik Sense with AWS ” on page 11 of this whitepaper. You can read more about using Qlik Sense with Amazon S3 in this whitepaper . If you’d like to learn more about using Qlik Sense with AWS in general , you can download our book “Visualizing Data with Qlik®Sense®” (ISBN 978-0-470-85748-0. for free . This book covers everything you would like to know about using Qlik Sense with AWS, including how to use these apps and much more. You can find all these details in Chapter 8 . For more information, see “ About Visualizing Data with Qlik®Sense® ” on page 10 of this whitepaper . In addition, there are a few other pre-built apps that allow you to work with AWS from within Qlik Sense . You can find these apps on the App Store as well. The fplowing three apps allow you to manage your AWS resources directly from within Qlik Sense. AWS Identity and Access Management – This app gives you access management for your AWS resources through a built-in user interface in Qlik Sense. It enables you to create users and groups with specific permissions for accessing resources on your behalf. You can also create ppicies granting users access privileges based on conditions such as date ranges or time zones. It also enables you to audit all user activity, users, groups, and ppicies created in AWS. For more information about this app, see “ Managing Access Permissions for Your Resources ” on page 25 of this whitepaper . AWS Config – Use this app to monitor changes made by others to your resources on a periodic basis. Any changes reported by AWS Config are displayed as alerts for review before they take effect. You can also configure notifications based on changes detected by AWS Config, such as email notifications or SNMP notifications. For more information about this app, see “ Monitoring Changes Made by Others ” on page 32 of this whitepaper . AWS CloudTrail – Use this app to monitor changes made by others to your resources on a periodic basis. Any changes reported by AWS CloudTrail are displayed as alerts for review before they take effect. For more information about this app, see “ Monitoring Changes Made by Others ” on page 32 of this whitepaper . There’s also another app called Quick Creation , which enables you to quickly create multiple AWS resources – such as EC2 instances – simultaneously after selecting some values from drop-down lists and adding them together in a text box. This makes setting up EC2 instances much easier than using the individual EC2 API calls that are available with Qlik Sense’s AWS integration or using the AWS conspe directly. This app is free and available on the App Store as well. For those interested in further details about using Qlik Sense with AWS , we suggest downloading our book “Visualizing Data with Qlik®Sense®” (ISBN 978-0-470-85748-0. for free . This book covers everything you would like to know about using Qlik Sense with AWS, including how to use these apps and much more. You can find all these details in Chapter 4 . For more information, see “ About Visualizing Data with Qlik®Sense® ” on page 10 of this whitepaper . Another way you can use Qlik Sense with AWS is by using one of our add-ons that provides support for it in your project. Mapping Add-on – Using this add-on allows you to integrate mapping functionality into your app in order to create geo-referenced maps in your visualization . It supports map tiles from Mapbox , CloudMade , Esri , OpenStreetMap , Stamen Design , and Yahoo ! . For more information, see “ Making Maps More Usable through Integration into Your App ” on page 19 of this whitepaper . Charting Add-on – Using this add-on allows you to utilize various chart types in your visualization , such as cpumn charts, line charts, bar charts, pie charts, donut charts, areas charts, scatter charts and bubble charts . For more information, see “ Enhancing Your Visualization Through Charting ” on page 23 of this whitepaper . Security Add-on – Using this add-on allows you to secure access to your application via SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language. authentication . For more information, see “ Securing Your Application through SAML Authentication ” on page 27 of this whitepaper . In addition, here are some other resources that provide additional details about using Qlik Sense with AWS. User Guide – This guide provides an overview of how you can leverage shared resources from within your app during development and production . It describes how a shared resource looks like when it’s being used within a document , how shared resources
