Resolved Defects

August 2022 Patch 6

Key Title Description
QB-17347 Qlik Sense Hub: Apps not shown under Favorites when using non-English language Fixed an issue where apps did not appear under Favorites unless you navigated back and forth. The issue occurred when using a non-English language in the Hub. The Favorites section is now refreshed for all languages when all app streams are loaded.
QB-16918 Qlik Sense Engine: Lost data rows when importing delimited UTF-16 encoded files Fixed a problem that caused embedded NUL (binary 0) characters in delimited UTF-16 encoded files, such as CSV, to be ignored during import, resulting in an incomplete data set.
QB-16816 Qlik Sense Visualizations: Action button background image not shown Fixed a problem where images on action buttons were not displayed correctly. The button now checks and works with multi-noded prefixes.
QB-9058 Qlik Sense: Possible to apply same custom property value more than once Fixed an issue where it was possible via QMC or API request to apply the same custom property value belonging to the same custom property definition more than one to the same resource.

 

August 2022 Patch 5

Key Title Description
QB-16853 Qlik Sense: Updated Node.js Updated Node.js to address a third-party issue (CVE-2022-43548). For more information, visit https://nodejs.org/en/blog/vulnerability/november-2022-security-releases/.
QB-15055 Qlik Sense Scheduler: Triggered tasks not running at expected scheduled time Fixed a problem where the scheduler services did not run properly if there were errors in the user-created cron expressions. We solved this by creating more controls and marking any problematic user entry in the scheduler error log file and ignoring that trigger until the user resolves the issue.
QB-14348 Qlik Sense Engine: Mashup application hangs Fixed a problem where a mashup application would hang when applying selections.
QB-14264 Qlik Sense Mobile: Lost connection on iOS Fixed a problem where the connection was lost after minimizing the browser window and switching to other applications.

 

August 2022 Patch 4

Key Title Description
QB-14958 Qlik Sense Visualizations: Page Unresponsive when selecting a sheet through the sheet dropdown menu Fixed a problem that caused pages to become unresponsive and trigger a "Page Unresponsive" error when selecting a sheet through the sheet dropdown menu.
QB-14951 Qlik Sense Visualizations: Incorrect numerical abbreviation in Scatter Plot using "Auto" Fixed a problem where using "Auto" in the chart configuration for the x or y axis showed an incorrect format in Scatter Plot charts.
QB-14890 Qlik Sense Visualizations: Overwrite option for ODAG app not working Fixed a problem where the "Overwrite generated apps" for ODAG did not work and triggered the warning message "Maximum number of generated apps reached". The overwrite option now works as expected and a newly generated app overwrites the existing ODAG app without a warning message.
QB-14649 Qlik Cloud Engine: Problem with qualifiers in aggregations Fixed a problem where aggregation qualifiers (such as total and distinct) were not considering the outer set analysis prescribed by the expression. This has been solved, and all calculations with outer set analysis notation yield correct results.

 

August 2022 Patch 3

Key Title Description
QB-11559 Scrollbar size differs between charts on touch devices Fixed an issue with the scrollbar size in bar charts and bullet charts on touch devices.
QB-11555 Visualizations: Problem with the selection toolbar menu on mobile browsers Fixed a problem that cut off the selection toolbar menu on mobile browsers when in landscape mode.
QB-10846 Visualizations: Container charts show extra spaces on mobile devices Fixed a problem where extra white space is visible on mobile devices if the selected chart uses less space than allocated for the container object.

 

August 2022 Patch 2

Key Title Description
QB-14353 Qlik Sense QMC: Undefined "userId" error in the QMC Fixed a problem where administrators would get an undefined "userId" error when loading the QMC.
QB-14297 Qlik Sense Engine: Dutch parser (NL) is not starting when enabling NLU_MUILTI_LINGUAL Fixed a problem that prevented the NL-parser from starting when enabling multi-language natural language queries in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows.
QB-11818 Qlik Sense: Authenticating via OIDC fails ("400 Bad Request") Fixed a problem where authentication via OIDC would fail if any of the optional attributes had an empty value when "Disable OIDC optional attributes" option was active in Virtual proxy settings.
QB-11759 Qlik Cloud Enterprise Connectors: BulkReader cannot process large strings Fixed a problem where BulkReader mode had an incorrect max string limit of 4096 characters.
QB-11232 Qlik Sense Visualizations: Drill down dimension selection on a dimension value label Fixed an issue with the drill down dimension selection that appeared on dimension value labels when there was only one dimension value left.
QB-10967 Qlik Sense Engine: "Invalid visualization" error message shown on some apps Fixed a problem where incomplete layout data was being passed from the Qlik Engine, resulting in the error message "Invalid visualization - The visualization was not found on the server" being shown. This occurred even for built-in visualizations.
QB-10681 Qlik Sense Visualizations: Problem when exporting tables with show condition to Excel Fixed a problem where table exports to Excel were corrupt when tables used show condition. This was solved by correctly checking if a column is shown/hidden.
QB-9515 Qlik Sense Enterprise Connectors: Wrong results via reload with MySQL connector Fixed a problem in the loading of text values when date filed is NULL in Bulk Reader mode for MySQL connector.
QB-8632 Qlik Engine: Recently published sheets can have an "Object not found" error Fixed a race condition in object persistence that sometimes resulted in "Object not found" for recently published sheets.

 

August 2022 Patch 1

Key Title Description
QB-11350 Visualizations: Cannot change order of dimensions/measures by drag-and-drop when using table extensions Fixed a problem that prevented the ordering of dimensions/measures in extensions using an older API ("uses: dimension" and "uses: measures").
QB-11033 Qlik Sense Visualizations: Text wrap on table objects not working Fixed a problem where table rows were displaying all text in cells, causing unnecessarily large tables. This was resolved by restoring the default row height limit of 3 rows of text.
QB-10963 Fixed dynamic views to show items Fixed dynamic views to show items
QB-10843 Visualizations: Cannot apply properties to charts in containers Fixed a problem that prevented removing an alternate dimension from the chart. This was caused by a mismatch between the properties. A dialog is now displayed, so changes can be applied.
QB-10810 Qlik Sense Visualizations: X-axis labels disappear Fixed an issue that caused the X-axis label on charts to disappear when zoomed to 90%.
QB-10789 Data connections: Could not load NCLOB or CLOB data types when connecting to Oracle DB Fixed an issue where scripts failed to load field type NCLOB or CLOB when connecting to Oracle DB.
QB-10772 Visualizations: ODAG report generation fails with error "Failed to create new request link" Fixed a problem where non-integer expression values were causing the ODAG report generation to fail.
QB-10763 Qlik Oracle connector: Error in XML element function Fixed a bug where using the XmlElement function in queries of the ODBC Connector Package Oracle datasource caused an error (ORA-00907: missing right parenthesis).
QB-10558 Qlik Sense Visualizations: View Data for container chart shows incorrect data In a container with two charts using different data, the View data option showed only the data for the first chart. This issue has been fixed, and the data shown now matches the selected chart.

 

August 2022

Key Title Description
QB-7033 Qlik Sense Enterprise Connectors: MongoDB query filter ‘WHERE’ clause not working as expected Fixed a problem in which the 'WHERE' clause query filter was failing to load data from MongoDB. The issue was fixed with the latest mongo driver update - 2.3.19.1021.
QB-8050 Scheduler: Operations Monitor app does not show new reloads Fixed a bug that altered the structure of the scheduler service logs, making them incompatible with the data load model of the Operations Monitor app. To inspect reload activity from the affected period, use the Reloads Monitor app.
QB-8796 Qlik Sense Licensing: License monitor fails when analyzer capacity time has been exceeded Corrected the logic used for the evaluation of analyzer capacity license consumption in the License Monitor app.
QB-9324 Qlik Sense: Issue when applying selections within a container Fixed an issue with applying selections within a container after upgrade to Qlik Sense November 2021.
QB-9325 GeoAnalytics: Line layer failed to draw lines with lat lon on two dimensions Fixed an issue where the line layer failed to draw lines when using latitude and longitude with two dimensions.
QB-9456 Security issue with jQuery UI 1.12.1 Upgraded jQuery UI from 1.12.1 to 1.13.1 to avoid a security issue.
QB-9584 Add "My domain" support for Salesforce connector You can now use your private subdomain in my.salesforce.com. See https://help.salesforce.com/s/articleView?id=sf.faq_domain_name_what.htm&type=5
QB-9596 POST "/qrs/license/<Analyzer|Professional>AccessType" method for assigning license access not working as expected The issue has been fixed and "userId" and "userDirectory" (in addition to the user's "id" in GUID format) are now mandatory fields to be included in the body of the request. If the fields are missing, the repository service will now throw "The repository detected an invalid property of the following type: user with EMPTY userId or userDirectory" error.
QB-9654 Master item not working when used in drill-down Fixed an issue with handling group dimensions with reference to master items.
QB-9704 Background color on pivot table is not working consistently Fixed an issue with uncalculated attributes in pivot tables.
QB-9713 Qlik Sense: Pivot table sometimes displays incorrect background color Fixed an issue where the pivot table would sometimes display incorrect background color when scrolling up or down.
QB-9748 Qlik Sense: Cannot scroll back up when scrolling in a straight table Fixed an issue where it was possible to scroll outside of the table area. This happened when the row height of the last table row was bigger than the height of the table body.
QB-9759 Qlik Engine: "Always one selected" disappears after reload Fixed a bug that causes the "Always one selected" value to be lost upon reload. Contradictions caused the selection state to be reset.
QB-9772 Qlik Sense: Excel exports return "undefined" and file can't be opened The issue was caused by an undefined grand total value. This has been fixed.
QB-9797 Task status is not updated for apps Fixed an issue where the task status in 'App: associated items' was not updated.
QB-9881 Qlik Sense table throws errors in mashup Fixed an issue where console errors were seen when a table was used on a mashup page.
QB-9908 Qlik Engine: Buffered QVD removed during reload Fixed a bug that deleted a buffered QVD during reload. Caused by a faulty file path check.
QB-9918 Qlik Sense Visualizations: Charts in containers were triggering an error Fixed a bug that would trigger an "Invalid Hypercube Object" error when toggling between different chart types in a Container.
QB-9955 Tooltip missing for toggle lasso selection icon Fixed an issue where the tooltip for the toggle lasso selection icon was missing in pie charts.
QB-9964 Risk of information disclosure using /api/engine/sessions API This issue has been fixed by hiding the /sessions endpoint behind a flag. The endpoint is disabled by default and can be enabled by setting the ExposeSessionsEndpoint flag to 1 in engine INI.
QB-9967 Information disclosure in response to "/qrs/systemrule/security/audit/export" API The response to "/qrs/systemrule/security/audit/export" no longer discloses sensitive information. The file location now points to "%Temp Location%".
QB-10003 Issue with information disclosure using the "ComputerName()" method Fixed the issue by blocking Computername and EngineVersion when BlockSystemInfo ini-int is set to 1.
QB-10013 Qlik Engine: Bookmarks with saved layouts could cause slow interactions Fixed a problem that caused bookmarks saved with layouts to increase in size when shown in a list, resulting in the browser not being able to show the list.
QB-10051 Qlik Sense Hub: Improper error handling for "api/hub/v1/apps/stream/" request Fixed a problem that resulted in unnecessarily verbose error messages.
QB-10171 Reload script is executed successfully but app save fails Added a retry mechanism where a locked transaction file would cause Engine to fail when saving the app.
Affected areas:
- Autosave
- API: DoSave
- API: DoSaveEx
Note that when the saving sometimes takes a bit longer to complete, this could be the retry mechanism waiting for the file to get unlocked for writing (10 ms for each retry).
QB-10174 Issue with notification setup when several websockets have opened the same app When several websockets open the same app event, registration of notifications like publish and unpublish is set up and torn down appropriately.
QB-10280 Qlik Engine: Not all published apps open after encryption certificate is changed Fixed a bug that prevented some published apps from opening after a new encryption certificate was used. When the encryption certificate is now changed, all objects in the app are re-encrypted upon the first save or reload, removing any reference to the old certificate.
QB-10390 Filter pane does not show expected items Fixed an issue with fixed filter panes. When a user was typing as slow speed, the filter pane didn't show correct results. This has now been resolved.
QB-10416 Filter pane search highlight doesn't work with ceratain characters Fixed the highlight when using the filterpane and the entered search value included certain characters, for example, colon ':'.
QB-10460 "/qrs/license/requestaccesstype" takes long time to complete with large number of SAML groups Fixed the issue by improving the parsing mechanism of values included in the "X-Qlik-ExtendedUser" header.
QB-10481 The button object doesn't display images in a mashup Fixed the issue by using the correct URL for the button object in mashup situations.
QB-10576 Qlik Cloud Enterprise Connectors: Salesforce connection error "My domain cannot be empty" Fixed a bug that would throw an error during data reload, stating that "My domain cannot be empty".
QB-10670 Qlik Sense Licensing: Offline Signed License Definition (SLD) did not work Fixed an issue where Signed License Definition (SLD) tried to fetch information in offline mode if the delayed sync had expired.
QB-10692 Qlik Engine: Risk of corrupting the state of thread locks due to stalling engine Resolved an issue where the engine was stalling when checking for changes to Settings.ini.
QB-10693 Qlik Sense Hub: Stream overview does not initially load all available streams Fixed a problem that prevented some streams from initially loading in the hub.
SHEND-1007 Update Node.js Updated Node.js to address third-party issue CVE-2022-32223. For more information, see https://nodejs.org/en/blog/vulnerability/july-2022-security-releases/ 
QB-11144 Qlik Sense QMC: Duplicate status values Fixed an issue where 'Status' filter list would show duplicate values for 'Queued' and 'Started' statuses.
QB-11239 'Favorites' section in the hub does not initially show all apps Fixed a problem that caused the 'Favorites' section in the hub to initially not show all apps. This required users to wait for a few seconds and then browse back and forth to Favorites section for all apps to appear. We solved this problem by adding an auto refresh that loads all apps without having to browse back and forth to Favorites section. Note that a few seconds delay might still be observed for all the apps to appear in the Favorites section.

 

Known issues and limitations

The following issues and limitations were identified at release time. The list is not comprehensive; it does however list all known major issues and limitations.

Clients

    • Third-party are currently not supported on mobile devices, and the Qlik Trusted Extension Developer program does not accredit extensions for use on mobile devices. Depending on individual device specifications, mobile OS, and size of the Qlik Sense app, items generated using a third-party extension might fail to be visualized properly on a mobile device.
    • When consuming Qlik Sense apps using the Microsoft Edge browser, touch screen mode is activated by default even when it is run on a non-touch device. Workaround: turn 'touch screen mode' off from the navigation menu.
    • When consuming Qlik Sense apps using Microsoft Edge browser on touch/hybrid devices, the long-press action does not work. This limitation prevents from accessing functions such as an object’s context menu, which on touch mode requires a long-press. This is a Microsoft Edge’s issue.
      Workaround: If using a hybrid device, turn the touch mode off and turn it back on again.
    • Export as Anonymous does not work for mashups deployed in a domain that is different from the domain in which Qlik Sense is installed. Export only works for Anonymous if the mashup is deployed in the same domain as Qlik Sense.
    • When using the new “Load Extension” syntax in the load script, the Data Load Editor syntax completion does not work well after the keyword “Extension” when trying to write the call to an SSE function (AAI function). Nevertheless, the script executes correctly.
    • Legend does not show dimension values that are after row number 3000.
    •  Exporting a story to PowerPoint limitations

      1. Titles are not rescaled as HTML, font settings are not yet exported.
      2. Storytelling effects are not applied.
      3. Exported charts may show fixed scroll bars, depending on the export resolution.
    • It is not possible to open the context menu of an org chart on a touch device
    • When you choose to view data in the context menu in a Dynamic Chart and make a new selection in the app, you need to refresh the browser for the chart to be displayed again
    • Extensions: FILTERS is reserved and cannot be used as a name for a custom property

Dynamic views

  • Dynamic views that are deleted from one app are also deleted from every other app that was using the same view. There is no workaround for this issue other than to avoid deleting views that may already be in use by one or more other apps because of having made copies of these apps
  • When creating a new dynamic view in the assets panel, if there are one or more existing dynamic views, the dropdown menu item does not automatically change to show the charts of the newly created dynamic view.  The user must click on the dropdown menu to choose the newly created view
  • The data for a dynamic view is automatically refreshed (i.e. re-queried from source) whenever a user enters a sheet containing any charts for that view.  The same occurs when entering and then returning from the global selections panel as well as when adding a new chart for the same view.  To prevent triggering this automatic refresh behavior, users should refrain from performing these actions on the base app.
  • The view of a dynamic chart is cleared and overlaid with a message indicating a view constraint violation condition whenever the user changes the selection state of the base app such that the view's constraints are violated.  Users should refrain from altering the selection state of the base app at least until they are finished making use of the data in any one of the dynamic view charts
  • The right-click "Go to source" option on a Snapshot slide for a dynamic chart does not select the actual dynamic chart when changing the view to the base app sheet
  • Chart settings changes made to dynamic view charts using the Exploration menu are lost following refresh operation of the view
  • Dynamic Views currently does not support the Trellis extension

Managing a Qlik Sense site

  • The Qlik Management Console Custom Property Edit page can currently handle a limited number of custom properties. If you want to edit custom property values in the Qlik Management Console, we recommend keeping the amount of custom property values to a maximum of 500. If you want to just apply values without modifying them, the Qlik Management Console can handle up to 10.000 custom property values.
  • With the current architecture it is not possible, using security rule on HubSection_* resource, to hide "Open hub" link from the "Navigation" menu when accessing app as an anonymous user.
    Workaround: Use reverse proxy configured to redirect "Open hub" link to a preferable landing site
  • When removing app objects from an application via Qlik Management Console's interface, deleted objects are not removed from that application’s binary file stored on the file system.
  • Unable to hide "Open hub" link for anonymous user by using security rule. With the current architecture it is not possible, using security rule on HubSection_* resource, to hide "Open hub" link from the "Navigation" menu when accessing app as an anonymous user. Suggested workaround is to use reverse proxy configured to redirect "Open hub" to a preferable landing site.
  • Windows service Qlik Engine cannot be started on a node where Qlik Engine service is disabled through Qlik Management Console. Description: Every time Windows restarts for that node, the Qlik Engine service will fail to start up and throw an error in Windows event logs. This can be prevented by temporary disable the Qlik Engine service in Windows Service Manager.
  • Data connection passwords containing special characters are not properly encoded when updated via Qlik Management Console. Description: Data connection passwords containing special characters (such as "=", "%", or ";") are not correctly encoded when updated via the Qlik Management Console (QMC). This causes authentication errors when trying to connect to specific data sources, which could cause reload tasks to fail.
    The simplest workaround is to use the data load editor to update the password.
    Please note that once the password is updated, the name of the data connection is automatically appended with "(domain_userId)". This can be adjusted later on via the QMC.

Qlik Sense Desktop

  • Qlik Sense Desktop can play WebM and Ogg, but not MP4 files due to limitations in Chromium

Connectors

  • REST connector: The Next token pagination option does not work when the pagination token has the same value for each page.
  • For connectors in the ODBC Connectors Package, only the data types listed as supported in the online help have been verified to work correctly in the Preview and Script editor. However, ODBC Connector Package does not prevent the loading of other data types, so in some cases unsupported data types can be loaded with the load script.
  • ODBC connector: If the user name on the Microsoft Windows system running Qlik Sense Desktop contains letters that are not English alphanumeric characters, database connectors in the ODBC Connector Package do not work properly. Workaround: Change the Windows system locale to match the character set that contains the characters used in the user name. For example, if the system locale on the system running Qlik Sense Desktop is set to English and a user name contains Swedish characters, the System locale setting must be changed to Swedish for the ODBC connector to work properly

  •  The Qlik Salesforce Connector does not support PK chunking on sharing objects. PK chunking is supported only on parent objects.

  •  Apache Phoenix connector does not support non-Latin characters in metadata.
    Connector may return a corrupted data or unpredictable query results if running a query with non-Latin characters in metadata: table names, column names, aliases, etc.

Cloud deployments and Multi-Cloud

  • When downloading a in cloud environments (Qlik Sense Enterprise on Cloud Services and Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes), expanded rows are not included but stay collapsed.

The Technical Preview never got its "What's new" page and it appears the live version hasn't, either. There's currently no documentation available at all for the August 2022 version, only up to May 2022 (as of this posting at least). [Edit: Help for August 2022 has now been added but still contains no What's New information]

[Second edit: What's New for August 2022 now appears to have been pushed live but the documentation for the actual new features is incomplete]

@Chotana2 You have the Technical Preview there, not the Initial Release - that's what the "Internal" on the end means. You may be able to upgrade from the Technical Preview to the Initial Release and then apply the patch.

Of course, you don't want to run Technical Previews in Production environments - or any environment where you don't want to have to uninstall/re-install frequently.
