Modify URL on Web file

Hello,

I use many Web file connections to build dashboard. I need to adjust tree on the remote server and so the URL of my Web file connection.

In Data loader section, connections are locked, I have to remove associated tables in data management to free connections. But if do this, I lose new computed field.

What is the solution in this case ?

Regards

Hi, from version Qlik Sense February 2018 it is possible to change URL of a webfile connection dynamically by using URL is specifier. So you can create a single webfile connector and change the URL as needed during script execution.

See the help site at https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/February2018/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Scripting/ScriptSpecifiers/url...

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Thank you for your response.

Sorry after read your link, I don't understand where set URL is. How to find the url of the data libs ? I see something like lib://xxx where xxx is the name of the librairy.

Thanks

Hi, please have a look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9PnfEFwsrc for an example of using URL IS specifier.
