This issue has been resolved in a fix that was pushed to Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS and Qlik Sense Business on Friday, May 7th. A patch is available for Qlik Web Connectors, December 2020 Patch 2. The patch can be found on the Qlik Download site.
GetWorksheet is now deprecated. GetWorksheetV2 or GetSheetValues should be used moving forward.
If the Gsheet has to be Private:
Alternatively, to "GetWorksheet" the "GetSheetValues" and the parameters shown in the attached PDF, should return the same data as the table "GetWorksheet". Please, make sure to double-check that the data matches before doing any changes to the apps. If the Gsheet can be Public:
Making the sheet public also solves the problem and allows you to keep using the table "GetWorksheet", but please note that we only suggest this workaround for very specific cases where the data is already public or doesn't contain confidential information.
Qlik Web Connectors used a legacy method for getWorksheet. A change to this API by Google caused the defect. This has been logged with Qlik as product Defect ID: QCWP-3096.
