Re: Qlik Sense 2.1.1 import extensions error

Hello Javier

This is a known issue, it seems certain mime types are not allowed in the .zip file. They are working on this as we speak. The work-around is to remove all files from the .zip that are not allowed. I will update you with the actual allowed list, but look for files that are not .css, .js etc.

Let me know.

Re: Qlik Sense 2.1.1 import extensions error

Hi,

in addition to mto‌'s mail. Try to remove the files meeting the following criteria:

  • File extension
    • .md
    • .markdown
    • .less
  • Files without content (e.g. .gitignore, etc.)
  • Files without file extension (e.g. LICENSE)
  • Folders starting with a . (e.g. ".idea", ".git", etc.)

Hope this helps, if not, please let me know, we are just about to test the fix for 2.1.1 and I am eager to understand which other file types are not accepted but typically used in extensions.

Regards

Stefan

Re: Qlik Sense 2.1.1 import extensions error

Forgot to mention, we are planning to approach this issue by providing two tools:

  • An official one to path the Qlik Sense server that it will allow again those files to be included in the extension import
  • An unofficial one (published on GitHub) to check that an extension works for sure on servers which are not patched ... so this tool would more be for extension developers

As I am writing these lines, we are about to test these approaches and they should be published next week.

Regards

Stefan

Re: Qlik Sense 2.1.1 import extensions error

I try 2 way:

1) compress folder and import into the qmc.

2) copy files in the folder: C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Repository\Extensions

Is the same, i don't import a new extension in version 2.1.1

Regards,

Javier

Re: Qlik Sense 2.1.1 import extensions error

We got the same problem with our extension.

The file blocking the import was :

- The licence file (.lic)

- The cursor file (.cur)

- The font file (.eot)

In fact I think the server is expecting only file extension that he know : css/js/png/jpg/qext/wbl all other file are not allowed on the server. Txt file is fine for the server.

Are they a list of all the allowed file extension ?

Re: Qlik Sense 2.1.1 import extensions error

It's got a .gitignore file and other git related files in there.  I found that the upload doesn't like git artifacts either.

Try taking out README.md and the .gitignore file and it should load.
