The information in this article is provided as-is and to be used at own discretion. Depending on tool(s) used, customization(s), and/or other factors ongoing support on the solution below may not be provided by Qlik Support.

 

Resolution

 

This is due to the new DoS (Denial of Service) protection in those versions. Error 429 will happen more than 60 upload requests are sent in a 30 seconds time frame.

This protection can be disabled. Qlik does not recommend disabling DoS attack protection. 

In C:\Program  Files\Qlik\Sense\Repository\Repository.exe.config file, set the following option to false to disable it.

<add key="UseDosProtector" value="false"/>

Qlik cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by a DoS attack if the above option has been disabled.
