Vizlib / Qlik SaaS Support Reference and Known Issues

If you're working with Vizlib products and looking to deploy them using Qlik SaaS (Qlik Sense Cloud), this article contains a brief overview of any known issues regarding compatibility, and reference tables for each Vizlib extension and global feature.


TABLE OF CONTENTS


Introduction


  • Third party extensions cannot be exported, please read the Qlik Sense article here. Vizlib customized exports are still available in some extensions but the native export functionality of Qlik Sense is not compatible with extensions in Qlik SaaS. This limitation also affects the ability to use stories in SaaS since that uses the same functionality.
  • Vizlib extensions are able to support the data export function with Qlik Sense August 2021, but exporting images or PDFs is not currently supported with any extensions.
  • It is not possible to create a sessions app with a session cookie. This impacts the ability to use Vizlib Writeback Table / Vizlib Input Form on SaaS.
  • The owner is the only user who can reload the application with Enigma doReload and doReloadEx. Therefore, reload permissions cannot be granted to other users, and partial reloads are not possible. Again, this impacts the use of Vizlib Writeback Table / Vizlib Input Form.
  • User authentication with Vizlib Server is not possible, so session cookies cannot be used. An OAuth 2 implementation could resolve this issue, but is not currently supported. 
  • Subscriptions to Sheets and Collaborative Notes are not available in Qlik SaaS with any Vizlib extensions.
