Folder connection is not available in QlikSense 3.2

Dear Community,

We have just purchased QlikSense, but do not see a Folder connection within connections, even using a Root admin account.

How do we connect to a windows network drive then?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Anton,

can you check with the admin user if the Qlik Sense Service User is included in the security of the directory?

Folder works fine in QS 3.2.

Can you give me more details as to the steps you are doing?

It is possible that a security rule is preventing you from seeing this option.  Did you change any of the rules?

No rules were changed, and it is a fresh installation. I see only this in connections:Folder.png

Hi Anton,

Please login once with root admin account, you can see the folder connection option.

Hi Rohit,

I have all possible admin permissions in the system:

AuditAdmin, ContentAdmin, DeploymentAdmin, RootAdmin, SecurityAdmin

Otherwise I would not ask this question

Obvious things are already excluded.

there is no folder connexion when you use Load data editor; you can connect directly to your file (excel, csv and so on)

The folder connexion will appear as (FOLDER) when you use the script to build your model

Hey Anton,

in addition to what has already been said.

You can see folders from the wizard, but only if those connections have already been created.

Also, you'll find them under 'Connections'.

To create folder connections you have to create them by script editor.

Hi Anton,

These permissions AuditAdmin, ContentAdmin, DeploymentAdmin, RootAdmin, SecurityAdmin works for QMC not for HUB.

What you need to check, do your user has right to create or develop.Please check CreateAppObjectsPublishedApp and CreateApp are not disable. Secondly, Share a snapshot with what option comes when you try to create folder connection.

Hi Rohit,

I have checked, and the permissions are fine (from the script looks like any non-anonymous user can do it). Basically, I have no issues creating an application.

Again, this is a fresh install, where no one has messed with any permissions yet, only assigning maximum permissions to the created users by assigning roles was done.

An advice for Qlik creators is to make this functionality more obvious, at the moment it is very puzzling.

Hello Ricardo,

What I can see in already automatically created connections are folders of application logs itself. But I have no option to connect a network-shared directory.
