  • Qlik Sense SaaS REST connector error ".. hexadecimal value 0xFFFE, is an invalid character..." when reloading an XML file from a specific REST API

    This was reported to R&D, and identified as a current limitation with ID QB-2819. 

    On the other hand, there is also an improvement on going on this feature with ID: QLIK-103181

  • QVWs Distributed to Qlik SaaS do not update in an expected manner

    When distributing a QlikView app from QlikView Publisher into Qlik SaaS, the underlying application in Qlik SaaS is nominally reported as updated as judged by the QlikView Publisher task log and the "Last Modified" column in the Hub show the app as being successfully updated/uploaded. When the app is opened, the underlying data has not changed compared against the app as distributed against QVS at the same time.

  • Unable to "Export with data" apps that have section access applied

    The tenant admin is not able to export apps with data from shared spaces (only for their own personal one), when the apps have section assess. The option is disabled (hidden) so there is no error message.
    This was reported to R&D with ID  QB-4686.
    This is, at the moment, a known limitation, because a tenant admin shouldn't necessarily have access to all the data, but we are currently re-evaluating the way this is implemented.

I'm having issues getting a QVF larger than 500 MB published to the cloud.  A lot of my QVF's are larger than 1 gig that I need to get published.  


@tmumaw : please, detail your issue in a separate post on https://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Sense-SaaS-Multi-Cloud/bd-p/qlik-sense-multi-cloud , as that is the appropriate place for new problems. Thanks!
