Versions

v4.9.1 - 06/02/23

Bug Fixes:
  • [CLB-4121]: Vizlib Management Console - Destinations are not loading after upgrading to v4.9.0

More information...
 v4.9.0  -   01/02/23  

  New features:  
  •  [CLB-3831]: Scheduled Task Destination Locking
    This feature is useful in Writeback scenarios where an application used is being reloaded frequently by a Qlik Task on a scheduled basis - e.g. because data is fed from an external datastore every hour or even more often. The feature will automatically lock the Writeback Destination from being used by end users for the defined amount of time before the scheduled task starts. This prevents unexpected errors from being thrown when both the Writeback user and a QMC Task make an attempt to reload the same application.


     
  •  [CLB-3979]: Enable SSL for postgres databases
    We added new option to authenticate to Postgres database, either one used by Vizlib Server to store its configuration or another instance used to store your Teamwork comments or Writeback data.

     

  Bug Fixes:  
  •  [CLB-4041]: Vizlib Server - Extension server URL changed automatically after server restart
    The extension server URL would change automatically after restart of Vizlib Server. That is fixed and we also improved the logging to be able to better track similar issues.

     
  •  [CLB-4043]: Qlik Cloud - Oauth window issue
    The Oauth window will now appear only once during user session lifetime. (Previously it could pop up multiple times.)

     
  •  [CLB-4089]: Cloud - Destinations are not shown
    In some cases destinations were not loaded and shown in the extension.

     
  •  [CLB-4098]: Qlik Cloud - wrong API key used when Qlik user has a root admin role.
    There was an issue that users with root admin role wasn't able to connect to Writeback Destinations created by them. They had to either have content admin permission, or the destination had to be created as a server root user.

Easily integrate with various APIs and build sophisticated conditions based on the payload structure.

  • [CLB-3721]: [VMC] - Finance Report Schedules - unable to create new reports or edit existing ones

 v4.3.0  -   04/07/2022  


New Features (Collaboration Enterprise Customers Only): 

  • [CLB-3292]: [Writeback] Loop and Reduce - with loop values from source app dimension  
    In the initial version, when defining the Loop and Reduce tasks, users had to enter (or paste) loop values manually. It is now possible to select a dimension from which those values will be automatically fetched. This will be particularly useful when needing to loop through many values. 
  • [CLB-3716]: [Server for SaaS] Cloud automations - API update after Qlik release 
    Recently Qlik has officially released the official version of the automations API, and some changes were required on our side. 
  • [CLB-3348]: [Writeback] Destination time zone
    This feature allows you to specify the time zone in which dates are going to be saved. The current implementation was assuming that all dates with time were written in GMT+0, which could cause issues for some users. A new setting allows you to specify that saved dates are saved according to the destination (e.g. Postgres database) time settings. The setting is available under Default Settings inside Vizlib Management Console and applies to all Destinations configured.
  • [CLB-3455]: Installer improvements
    We added several smaller improvements to the installer, including better port number validation, check for provided password strength, and link updates.
