Hello Qlik Users!

An issue has been identified with the Google Spreadsheet Connector when using “GetWorksheet”. The issue affects:

  • Qlik Web Connectors December 2020
  • Qlik Sense Business
  • Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS


Two error messages can occur, depending on the platform.

Qlik Web Connectors on-premise error message

<Exception>APIConnectorInterfaces.Exceptions.APIConnectorException: Failed on attempt 1 toGET. (The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.) ---&gt; System.Net.WebException: Theremote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.

Qlik Cloud Services error message

HttpStatusCode: BadRequest, StatusCode: 400, StatusDescription: Bad Request, Message: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request., ResponseBody: Error 400 (Bad Request)!!1

There is currently a workaround, which you can find in the article:

Qlik Web connectors, google spreadsheets connector Error "The remote server returned an error: (400)...

R&D is currently investigating the issue. Qlik Support will update the article with information as it comes in.

Kind regards,

Qlik Digital Support
