QDF with the Dropbox connector

Good afternoon

Can someone help me with the following inconvenience?

Recently I was trying to use the Drobox connector with QDF without success. In other words, my intention was to use QDF in QlikCloudBusiness and for that I deployed the structure of QDF in a folder in the Dropbox cloud.

Finally I created a connection pointing to the root folder of the QDF which although I called Root was renamed to

Root (qlikcloud_qlikid_eber.fior)

Although I edited this connection by removing (qlikcloud_qlikid_eber.fior) so that only Root remains, this did not work in QlikCloudBusiness as in Qlik Server and was left with the name Root (qlikcloud_qlikid_eber.fior)

Independently of the previous thing, the connection worked correctly, as it is visualized in the image

and when navigating over it, you can see the structure of the QDF

then I try to initialize the framework

But without success. Here is the detail of the debugger

If I replicate the operation in QlikSenseDesktop with a local folder, everything works correctly.

If I replicate the operation in QlikSenseDesktop but with the Dropbox folder, it presents the same inconvenience as in QlikCloudBusiness, informing that it can not find the file

Therefore I assume that the problem is associated with the Dropbox connector or some configuration error of mine

Thanks for your help

QDF is not designed to work with Dropbox, and I don't think load scripts (.qvs) is intended to work in dropbox. Regards Magnus

Thank you Magnus

I decided to try using the DropBox connector for the QDF, since the QlikCloudBusiness service does not allow using the "Folder" connection type. It has something similar with DataFiles, but for files, instead of folders.

Is there any way to use QDF in QlikCloudBusiness?

From already thank you very much!!
