Hello Qlik Users,

Happy Wednesday!

There are two Qlik Sense patches and one Qlik Web Connectors patch available today! You can, of course, find the patches on the Qlik download site.

For customers who are using the latest release of the Qlik Web Connectors package from December 2020, the following improvements are now available:

  • Configurable Default Timeout:
    Users now have the ability to define how long Qlik Web Connectors should wait after making a connection request. Using the variable DefaultRequestTimeoutMs in the deploy.config file, they can define any timespan between 3 minutes and 90 minutes (i.e., values between 180000 and 5400000 ms) before Qlik Web Connectors will time out.
  • New configuration option for the Office 365 SharePoint Connector:
    An option can now be added to the deploy.config file to override the authentication endpoint, client ID and client secret. This configuration is useful only when the SharePoint Online environment is hosted outside general production, e.g., in a US Government tenant.
  • More columns available in the Outlook 365 Connector:
    The columns body_contentType and body_content have been added to the tables EventsForCalendar and AllEvents.
