Connections to a folder in a Network, Qlik Sense

Hi community!

I'm working with Qlik Sense (not desktop) and trying to create a Folder Connections on on a Target on another Network.

Qlik Sense is on a server, and the data are on a network  (in this pc -> Network locations. I can browse the folders in the Target, but Qlik Sense does not give me the availability to connect to them. I've tried to use the local address of theTarget in the path of the folder, the name, but it is not available. Any suggestion? Thanks in advance.

Hi

Did you using UDC like \\servername\\sharename\\directory?

Hi,

Yes, I've used the UDC.

I can see the path in "this pc" and browse the folders manually (out of Qlik Sense, going to This pc ->  name of the network connection) but I cannot manage to connect via Qlik Sense.Cattura1.PNGCattura2.PNG

I've tried it: the data are straight in the \\IP\ folder or in the \\Server\ folder, there are not other levels in the path (i.e. other folders).

Hi Simone.

Can you please check whether your Qliksense service account having access to that network folder path or not.

If you are not having an access, then you will not able to access it.

Thanks,

Gokul
