Architecture of TIM in Qlik

Introduction

The TIM integration uses the server-side extension (SSE) protocol to integrate the TIM Rest API. Different components can be deployed on individual servers of your QLIK installation to allow for scalability.

The server-side extension (SSE) protocol repository is an open source repository maintained and supported by Qlik. It allows you to extend Qlik Sense, by way of an analytic connection, with functionality from external calculation engines. You can use external calculation engines from both load script expressions and chart expressions. This repository provides an SSE protocol based on gRPC, and includes documentation about how to use it and how to build your own plugins.
