Variable Input extension (Dashboard Bundle) stopped working with Dynamic Values on Cloud [June 2020]

Hi to all,

I got an issue with Variable Input extension (Dashboard Bundle) on Cloud versions (both Qlik Sense Business and Qlik Sense Enterprise on Cloud). Suddenly, since 07/07/2020, the extension stopped working if alternative values are written as "Dynamic" (see screenshot). The result is a blank object. This worked up to 06/07/2020.

I submitted an issue in Qlik Support portal with case number 02021184 - VARIABLE INPUT BUNDLE EXTENSION NOT WORKING WITH DYNAMIC VALUES

Variable Input, listing Dynamic valuesVariable Input, listing Dynamic values Variable Input, remains blank on Dynamic valuesVariable Input, remains blank on Dynamic values

REPLICATION STEPS:

Step 1 - created an app (on Cloud) with just a Dummy Variable, called "DummyVariable" initialized at value "AAA";
 
Step 2 - created a new object "Variable Input - Fixed Values", linked to our DummyVariable with fixed values AAA,BBB,CCC; it works as intended, showing alternative values e changing the variable;
 
Step 3 - repeat step 2, but using Dynamic Values in format 'AAA~AAA|BBB~BBB|CCC~CCC'; here comes the ISSUE: no values are shown in the object, so users can't change the variable through this object

Problems with Variable Input Extension on-premise Qlik Sense also. I have the following Dynamic input string:

='{$ <BridgeDateType={"Ordered"}, CMorOrder={"Work Order"}, SchedShipInvoice={"Not Scheduled","Scheduled","Invoiced","Shipped"}, Date={"<$(=Today(0))"}>}~Received|{$<BridgeDateType={"Shipped"}, CMorOrder={"Work Order"},  SchedShipInvoice={"Shipped","Invoiced"}, Date={"<$(=Today(0))"}>}~Shipped|{$<BridgeDateType={"Scheduled"}, CMorOrder={"Work Order"},  SchedShipInvoice={"Scheduled"}>}~Scheduled (All)|{$<BridgeDateType={"Scheduled"}, CMorOrder={"Work Order"},  SchedShipInvoice={"Scheduled"}, WorkOrder-=P({<ORStatusDesc={"In Shipping"}>})>}~Scheduled (Not in Shipping)'

And a bar chart measure defined as:

=sum( $(vReceivedorShipped) OpenOrInvoicedAmt)/1000

It is being interpreted as shown in the screen shot below. This worked until we installed the June 2020 updates (all patches also) yesterday afternoon. We were on the April update.QlikExpression.png

 

 

Note the problem is the less than and greater than symbols being replaced with '&lt;' and '&gt;'.

In my case I programmed around the problem by defining each set analysis string as it's own variable in the load script. Essentially breaking up the dynamic Variable Input string into four. Then I used the Variable Input control to simply choose the variable name for the set analysis string. It then required a double expansion in the chart.

$($(vReceivedorShipped))

The first expansion substituted the correct variable name and the second brought in the string as defined in the load script.

The bug still exists so I am leaving my case open with support. I hope this helps some folks program around the problem for now.
