Trying to import an app and receive "The REST API call timed out between services."
I have successfully installed Qlik Sense with no errors. When I go into the QMC, I notice that no apps have been loaded (normally License Monitor and Operations Monitor are loaded by default). If I use the import button and navigate to C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Repository\DefaultApps and select License Monitor.qvf to import, I receive the following mesasge: The REST API call timed out between services. When I look in the Server1_service_respository.txt log file, I see the following error:
Update to people stumbling on this thread: We've been seeing the same issue on our platforms. Our ambition was to allow a group of users to import an app to QMC without the user having the ContentAdmin role.
If we create a security rule with "App*" in Resource Filter the import will work for apps that do not contain an unknown data connection. If the import app contains an unknown data connection QMC will attempt to create it and it will throw the "The REST API call timed out between services" error. In our case we're not interested in that app being imported (with random locally created data connections all over the place). But if you're fine with the data connection being created then add "DataConnection*" to the resource filter in the security rule.
