Qlik General Web Connector URI character limit of 1000

It appears Qlik Web Connectors now limits the URI string to 1000 characters.  I believe this change was made between versions 2.1 and 2.2 (November 2017).  We have been using version 2.01.  We have several connection links to Workday which are far longer than 1000 characters.  Does anyone know a work around?  Trying to install Qlik Web Connectors on a new server and it won't even let us use the older version of Web Connectors.

Hi - I don't think any changes were made in Qlik Web Connectors.

Is this for QlikView or Qlik Sense and is it possible you also changed the version of that?

Could you also let us know what table(s) you are using and whether it is a particular input parameter which is making up most of these characters?

Note if it's the 'POST/PATCH/PUT Parameter(s)' one option is to specify this in a file (see tool tip for parameter or help).

Re: Qlik General Web Connector URI character limit of 1000

We are using the General Web Connector, JsontoTable, using the "Get" method.  The Request URI * gives a pop up error message if the url is greater than 1000 characters after version 2.0.1.  We have a very long Workday url that is greater than 1000 characters and were unable to move forward with any version after that. See error message below.  Note, exact same URL and method work on version 2.0.1 but not after that. 


I've been able to "install" version 2.0.1 on new servers by copying a version I had on a different server over to the new server.

Hi - Could you tell us how long the workday URL just out of interest?

We will look into this issue for the next release.

The query in mention had a URL that was 1,200 characters long.  Thanks for your support!
