Expired Connectors

Do the Qlik Connectors have to be re-installed on a regular basis? We're using the May 2019 and they recently stopped working due to 'LICENCE_TIME_LIMIT_EXCEEDED'. The solution given is to update to the latest version. That isn't practical to do without time to test and make sure it doesn't cause issues. So basically these become unusable to us if they have to be updated after a set period of time or they stop working. 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Qlik-Developer  @stevedark ,

From this week, February 1, all Web Connectors are included as part of any Qlik Analytics license, see this blog post Premium Web Connectors are now free to all Qlik Analytics customers.

This means that all Web Connectors now are “standard”, and generally available without the need for a separate license. This is enabled when you use the December 2020 release of the standalone Web Connectors, and from this release there is no expiration date either.

However, keep in mind that it is always recommended to upgrade to the latest release in order to benefit from all new additions and fixes.

Best Regards,
P-O

Hi @P-O_Davidson  ,

That's a great news.

But i was facing issue to establish a jira connection in qliksense

tried to create a web file connection by giving the https://servername:5555, at top of the script created a variable with let QvwConnectionName='lib://ConnectorTest(opd_a55706)

Below screenshot is the end of the script copied from web connector qlik sense mode tab.

Hi @Qlik-Developer 

Does the connector exist on the right hand side and does it return a dataset?

Just use the Select Data button to test. You may want to try pointing the connection to a different default site (this will always get overwritten with WITH CONNECTION). You could try https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users

The connection name looks correct in your script, but you may want to check for rogue spaces or zeros being O's or anything like that.

Good luck,

Steve

So do we need to  provide in the Web file Url  either till https://servername:5555 or do we need to provide the url between the square brackets shown in below.
