NPrinting Report couldn't be fixed after Connection removing

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?

About WIP it is a third party tool so I cannot support on it. Right now (May 2021 SR4) we don't supply an official supported and documented public API to delete connections that third party tools or custom software can safety use. 

Thanks a lot for the ticket.

About changing the connection inside the Designer you can create a new idea in the Ideation Board of the community . Sorry but I cannot do more about new feature requests than suggesting and notifying the suggestions.

Best Regards,

I would like to add that:

  • Tested with May 2021 SR 2
  • Connection Deletion warnings are enabled


Workaround: (requires an NP database that has been backed up with the affected NP report/connection -- How to BackUp and Restore Qlik NPrinting Repositor... - Qlik Community - 1715863 )


If you need a copy of this report and if you have made regular backups of your NPrinting environment, you can 

  • Restore a copy of your NP database to a test server, restore your NP Database that is known to contain this report (perhaps a copy of the most recent NP database backup).
  • Then use the NP report 'Export' Feature to export this report from your restored test environment.
  • On the NP server that the NP connection was originally deleted, create a new NP connection that uses the same source QVW or QVF 
  • Restore (by using the report import feature) the previously exported/downloaded NP report

Hope this helps...
