The following release notes cover the versions of Qlik Web Connectors released in December 2021.
Qlik Web Connectors December 2021 Release (2.119.1) Overview
Some highlights in this release include:
.NET Framework 4.8 is required now
One connector has been deprecated – Bitly V2 Connector will be removed in a future version.
Three Connectors have been removed – Facebook Fan Pages Connector, Google AdSense Connector and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Connector.
In this release there have been many fixes to the connectors, which may include BREAKING CHANGES and, as such, please pay particular attention to any connectors which you may use in the Change Log section below.
When upgrading connectors to the latest APIs, unfortunately the changes can be so extensive that we are unable to modify the existing connector. When this happens we will create a new version of the connector and put the existing one into a ‘Deprecated’ state. This means that at some point in the future it will no longer be available and after entering the deprecated status, it will no longer be updated. The date is normally determined by the underlying API which will often have its own expiry date, after which the connector using it will no longer work.
You can see connectors affected under the Deprecated tab in Qlik Web Connectors.
Qlik Bitly V2 Connector
Connector is now deprecated and will be removed in a future version.
