The following release notes cover the Qlik PostgreSQL installer (QPI) version1.3.0.
Improvement / Defect
SHEND-1261: Allow upgrade from the bundled postgres version 12.5 to 14.8 version using QPI
You can now update the embedded Qlik Sense Repository Database from versions 9.6 and 12.5 to version 14.8. (This is due to the following security issues of PostgreSQL)
SHEND-971: Allow custom Qlik Sense Installation Folder for use with QPI
When Qlik Sense is installed outside of the standardfolder C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense e.g. (D:\Qlik\Sense), QPI can now be used to migrate the database.
QB-17384: Users were allowed to create folder names which are not allowed in Windows
Fixed the issue that it was possible to create a folder with the following charaters (/,:,*,?,",<,>,|) which are not approved by Windows.
Silent installation or upgrade is not available
Using the Qlik PostgreSQL Installer on apatched Qlik Sense version can lead to unexpected results. If you have a patch installed, either:
Uninstall all patches before using QPI or
Upgrade to an IR release of Qlik Sense which supports QPI
The summary of Database settings during the upgrade shows not the actual values of the pg_hba.conf
Rollback is not available
Database size is not checked against free disk space before a backup is taken.
Supported are only upgrades of a Qlik Sense Repository Database installed as an embedded Database with the initial installation. You can not upgrade a standalone or QPI converted/installed database.
QB-15164: Certain strings and characters cannot be used in the installation with QPI, the command line option for Postgres will not parse them in the command prompt. We have blocked & $ " @ ^ § to be used in the dialogue. If you run into that issue, please change the password to a simpler one before the use of QPI, you can change it back right after the upgrade. (This is anticipated to be fixed in 1.4.0).
Windows Server 2012R2 does not support PostgreSQL 14.8. QPI cannot be used on Windows Server 2012R2.
