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
Good news: Qlik Support announced on 03/08/2020 that the bug has been fixed and released on all SaaS solutions (QSB and QSEoC). I tested it and it works as expected. Thanks to all for your support. Have a nice day!

Related Bug: Variable Input bundle extension not working with Dynamic values
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.
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.
