Not possible to create data connections with a specific Qlik Sense user ID format

Please note that if you set up users in Qlik Sense please try to avoid using special characters like \/:*?<>| in the user ID. For example for users with auth0 authentication you might find a user ID like "auth0|...." (please see first screenshot below).

In this case the user with user ID "auth0|john.smith@qlik.com" would have issues creating data connections due to the "|" character in the user ID:

"Invalid connection name. Please enter a new connection name of 1-256 characters, without using \/:*?<>|"

A workaround in this case would be just to use the email address as a user ID, for example "john.smith@qlik.com"
