Discussion board where members can learn more about Integration, Extensions and API’s for Qlik Sense.
What are some common reasons an extension might break after an upgrade? I'm asking because we have some extensions that are no longer supported and can't update to the latest version. In several cases the extension doesn't throw an error in the console log but shows empty white space in the app.
a common reason is that the extension uses an undocumented method or module that has been removed. I recently helped a customer with a case where the reason was a method called inClient() that seems to no longer exist in September 2019.
The Qlik Sense client catches errors in extensions and silently ignores them. That might be why you don’t see any error in the console. You could try and set the ‘break on caught exceptions’ flag and see what happens. But that probably will give you a lot of errors that are no problem too.
There's not one particular extension I'm trying to fix but here's a few i can recall having problems.
"ClimberKPI" <-- removed but using old version
Reason for breakdown is "core.models/engine" in define it couldnt be found
If any body knows how to fix this, it will be a great learning for us.
