Load Metadata from QlikView
Use the QlikView Loader to upload metadata to Alteryx Connect from a specified QlikView report.
QlikView version compatibility
To load report objects with the QlikView metadata loader, create your report using the most recent version of QlickView. If your report is from a version of QlikView that does not support metadata around nested objects, you need to save it again using the latest version. See QlikView Object inheritance hierarchy and QlikView Object ownership hierarchy for more information.
