Uploading .qvf files results in an error "The contents of the attachment doesn't match its file type

When trying to attach a .qvf file we get this error: "The contents of the attachment doesn't match its file type."

This happened to us in this discussion: https://community.qlik.com/t5/New-to-Qlik-Sense/Color-dimensions-when-aggr-function-for-dimensions-w...

 

Could you look into this please? The workaround is to zip the file first, but it's a bit cumbersome. Thanks!

Hi @Gysbert_Wassenaar

Yes we are aware of this issue and we have it on the list of items we need to fix. 

As you say, you can get around it by zipping the files until we're able to roll out the added functionality. 

 

Have a great Friday and a fantastic weekend!

Uploading a zip file won't work either anymore.

Try zipping. Please also keep in mind that the file size limit is 10 MB.
