Re: Data connections not imported in Qliksense

Have you check the limitations in the documentation to see if they apply to your issue:

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/February2018/Subsystems/ManagementConsole/Content/import-apps.htm

If you look through it you will discover that there are some situations where the data connections will not be imported.

Re: Data connections not imported in Qliksense

Hey Petter,

Thanks for sharing valuable information. But on my new server where i am setting up Qliksense, i have exported my Qliksense apps from previous server and imported to new server. In my new server, i have not created any data connections with same name. But still connections are not imported. Dont know why.

Also, when i imported the apps to new server and opened that app, my charts are not visible. Do i need to drag them again?

Re: Data connections not imported in Qliksense

I was thinking specifically about this in the documentation:

Moving apps with ODBC data connections

When you move an app between Qlik Sense sites or Qlik Sense Desktop installations, data connections are not included. If the app contains ODBC data connections, you must create new connections, or use the ones that already exist at the new site. You also need to make sure that the related ODBC data sources exist on the new deployment. The ODBC data sources need to be named and configured identically, and point to the same databases or files.

Hey Peter,

It was my OLEDB connections and not ODBC connections. But these connections

not get imported so I have to create new connections

You'd have to create the data connections manually.
