GetDatabase and GetDatabaseTables from QLik sense engine api not working for sql server connection

In my Qlik sense desktop application, I've connected to a sql server (have tried both adding the database field and leaving it blank). The app is able to get tables and load data.

Now I'm trying to get the names of databases and their tables from the connection using the Engine API, but an empty list is returned (using getdatabases method)

{

"handle": 1,

"method": "GetConnection",

"params": {

"qConnectionId": "7c7f33e0-b007-4b00-914c-65b0a064668c"

},

"outKey": -1,

"id": 4

}

}

}

I know there are databases in the server;

I'm having the same problem for any kind of CUSTOM connector (provider=QvOdbcConnectorPackage.exe).
Do you have any news on that ?
