IMPORTANT UPDATE:
  • May 2021 SR 1 (and earlier) are not certified with Aug. 2021 Qlik Sense.
  • NPrinting May 2021 SR 2 (no release date setting from R&D) is intended to support QS Aug. 2021
  • NPrinting May 2021 SR 2 release notes will be updated with compatibility information.

 

Requirements:

Visit https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/Content/NPrinting/ReportsDevelopment/Qlik-objects-supported-NP...

  • Dashboard bundle: Dashboard bundle limitations. If you are experiencing issues, verify that you are using a compatible version of Qlik Sense. Your Qlik NPrinting version must be equal to or higher than your Qlik Sense version

Qlik Sense Native Object and Bundle Limitations with NPrinting:

NPrinting Qlik Sense Connection limitations:

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/Content/NPrinting/GettingStarted/HowCreateConnections/Connect-...

  • Always one selected value for fields
  • Calculated dimensions
  • Drill-down dimensions
  • Alternate states
  • Sheet Triggers (introduced in Qlik Sense April 2020)

Additionally:

  • Qlik Sense objects that connect to external servers, usually as additional data sources (Qlik GeoAnalytics, analytic connections)
  • Qlik Sense charts with Assistance enabled (disable 'chart assistance' in QS apps used with NP reporting only).
  • Un-certified Qlik Sense extensions. Note that TED extensions are supported directly by the TED - Trusted Extension Developer organization

Working around unsupported items:

In many  cases, you will need to maintain the user experience.

  • Therefore, we recommend to make a copy of the original QVF and
  • Remove these items below from the Qlik Sense app (.qvf) copy
  • For NP reporting purposes, use the copied QVF (with unsupported items removed) with NP Connections

Note: NPrinting connection 'verification' does not check for unsupported items.


Other considerations: 


Best practices to consider: 

  • Invalid or incomplete measures/forumlas in Qlik Sense sheets - private or public - that contain invalid or incomplete measures/formulas should be repaired or removed. Errors may occur in the NPrinting connection and or report generation if not repaired.
  • Keep your expressions up-to-date
  • Use a dedicated QS app for reporting purposes
  • Remove private sheets from published apps
  • Ensure the above unsupported items and limitations are addressed/removed
