When Connection is removed, the Report, related to this connection, is no longer available for editing.
Is it possible to make Connection2Report node changeable in future releases?
Yes, report should be editable to change connection to new report when old one is removed by accident. Otherwise re-building the report and re-linking in all the places is time consuming!!
It is already possible:
Do not invert point no.2 with no.3 otherwise the ID of the object will be changed by adding an underscore "_" followed by a progressive number. Is it not possible to do a mass change of object connections.
Please note also that when removing a connection used by some other entities you get a huge warning message with the complete list of the Qlik NPrinting Entities that are using the connection. So I suggest to first update those entities and then remove the connection.
Hi @Ruggero_Piccoli ,
unfortunately it is not possible to do what you've advised - template editor is just not opening but giving an error mentioned above.
Your remark about huge warning message is fair in case you remove Connection manually. In my case it doesn't work since a Connection was removed automatically (without any warnings) due to release via WIP. The removed Connection had the same name as the released one. But this is different story for a different discussion.
Hi @Romanwww ,
It is not clear to me the meaning of "Connection was removed automatically (without any warnings) due to release via WIP". How can be a connection removed automatically? Via API you cannot delete a connection https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/May2021/APIs/NP+API/index.html?page=20#Connections, The only way to delete a connection is manually and it displays the warning message. What am I missing?
About the Designer issue on opening a template that uses objects from a deleted connection please open a support ticket with a link to this conversation. A developer have to check the issue.
Hi @Ruggero_Piccoli, thank you for quick response.
I see two questions in your latest answer:
1) Deleting connection.
I can't give you more then I mentioned above:
a) WIP is using for the releases NEW : Qlik NPrinting Source Control & Deployment available;
b) During the release an existed Connection with the same name, as it was in released Connection, was removed;
2) Designer issue.
I'll create a ticket, thanks.
But! None of these two points give me an answer to the question I asked at the very beginning:
- Is it possible to make Connections changeable in a Report form at future releases?
