Known issues and limitations
The following issues and limitations were identified at release time. The list is not comprehensive but includes all known major issues and limitations.
- There are some instances where special characters in the virtual proxy prefix for Qlik Sense are not recognized. For example, the test data d/e/v for a virtual proxy prefix is not supported.
- When an alert, which is linked to a Qlik Sense application, is shared with a user who does not have access to the application, the accept link in the email results in an error message. The record is created and displayed in the user’s list of alerts. However, it will not trigger because it cannot connect to the application with that user’s credentials.
Web user interface
- The mobile app does not currently switch to landscape mode when the device is turned horizontally.
- Datetime fields are presenting differently in different browsers. This is the default behavior of the browser, but it might be difficult for a user to understand. For example, the format is YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MI:SS in Safari.
- In some browsers, the table is not refreshed when an alert is duplicated. You can refresh the browser and the new record with be shown with (copy) next to it.
Qlik Alerting Mobile app
- There seem to be some scenarios where the deep links to Qlik Sense mobile (QSM) or to the browser (where QSM is not installed) do not work fully. This could for example, be caused by special characters in the dimension name.
- The mobile app deep links to Qlik Sense Mobile do not work correctly on the iPad Pro iOS.
