Load Web File dynamically

Hi all

For load a web file in Qlik Sense is mandatory to define the connection with the specific link?

I need to load a web file that the source is made by variables like that:

[https://domain.com/$(vYear)/$(vMonth)/File.XLS]

Any suggestion?

thank you

icd Any updates on when this may be available in Qlik Sense?  I'd prefer not to disable standard mode.  Thanks!

I'd also like to see it possible to add variables into an http LIB connection.

Thanks.

You may have to wait a little longer yet, it is only just coming up to the third anniversary of this post...

The thoughts of what any user can do with a load script if Standard Mode is disabled is quite worrying (as the user always gets the rights of the service when scripts are run).  Still the only option at present though.

It hadn't even crossed my mind that we couldn't use a variable in a lib:// item.  Are you in Lund this week?  If so, add this to your list please

Hello,

Is this feature released yet? Perhaps it could follow the same syntax as WITH CONNECTION for REST services?
