Load Parquet data into Qlik Sense

Trying to load a Parquet File into Qlik? You are in the right place!

This is how:

1) Create a Cloudslurp account and upload your Parquet file or connect your S3/dropbox location where the parquet file sits.

2) You will now be inside your first 'data board'. Select the correct connection you created, if you uploaded a file it will be listed under 'Files'.

Heres your data! Now you can get the data via the Cloudslurp API like this:

https://api.cloudslurp.com/data?token=YOUR_TOKEN&query=SELECT * FROM files."myfilename.parquet";

Get your exact URL by selecting the 'Code' button in the data viewer.

3) Go to your Qlik app and open the script editor, create a REST connection and use the URL in the query box. This will return your Parquet data to Qlik. You can even apply filters in Cloudslurp to improve your app reload time. Alternatively you can manually download the data as a CSV and work with it that way.
