Using Qlik Replicate

  1. Download and install Qlik Replicate Software. (e.g. sudo rpm -i areplicate-6.6.0-488.x86_64.rpm)

  2. Enable Web UI access. To enable access to the Web UI, run ./repctl SETSERVERPASSWORD <your_password>. Make sure to follow the requirements for the password described here.

  3. Make sure your environment satisfies the prerequisites for the Source Endpoint (MySQL in our example). MySQL prerequisites can be found here. For our example, the following commands were used to download and install the necessary software:

    • wget

    • sudo yum install -y mysql-community*5.7.32*

    • sudo yum -y install

    • sudo yum install unixODBC

  4. Make sure your environment satisfies the prerequisites for the Target Endpoint (SingleStore in our example). SingleStore prerequisites are the same as MySQL, and can be found here.

  5. Check the corresponding section of the Qlik Replicate user guide to find out what additional configuration steps are needed and what limitations exist for a particular data source and target.

  6. You should be able to open a Qlik Replicate Web Console as described here.

  7. You can add a replication task as described here.

    Note that if you are using a SingleStore cluster as the target, you will need to specify the database access credentials (host, port, user, database) available via the Cloud Portal.

    In the Cloud Portal, the host is the Endpoint, the port is 3306, the user/password is the admin user you were prompted for when you created the cluster. The database name is the database you are using.

  8. Now you can run the task as described here.
