Failed to import app Qlik sense QMC

Hi,

I am trying to import certain app at qlik sense by QMC but faced certain error:

Invalid path [4]:Invalid path (Path longer than 260 characters) (HTTP code: 500) 37543937-a22e-4ae6-82b5-65147fdb8b69

This is to mention that I can import other apps from the same location then why received such error (Path longer than 260 characters) as well as same app can be accessed by Qlik sense desktop.

Check the below link: (Some of the images having longer name)

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/April2018/Subsystems/ManagementConsole/Content/import-apps.htm

Browse to the app (qvf file) you want to import and click Open.

If the app includes an image with a long file name, so that the full path to the image is longer than 260 characters, the import will fail. Reduce the image file name if the path is too long.

Hi Bala Bhaskar,

The app is downloaded from demo.qlik.com named "02.CEM Communications.qvf" which is working fine with Qlik sense desktop however couldn't import same app to Qlik sense QMC.

Try renaming the app and import it?

Yep I renamed with only 3 Character like "CEM.qvf" instead of "02.CEM Communications.qvf".

Please have the app link below to try by yourself:
