Making changes to a Qlikview document (.qvw) or Qlik Sense app (.qvf) will sometimes break already existing bookmarks. This is sometimes unavoidable and is something developers need to be mindful of when making changes to existing deployments. Bookmark functionality can be affected by the following changes:
- Removing or renaming fields that are included in the bookmark.
- Changes to the data model or associations between fields.
- Enabling functionality like "Always One Selected" (QlikView) or locked fields, even on fields that are not included in the bookmark!
Making any of these changes can lead to bookmarks that only apply some of the intended selections, or even none at all.Environment:
- QlikView, all versions
- Qlik Sense, all versions, all editions
A developer making changes to a document will need to keep these limitations in mind, and test any existing bookmarks especially after using sensitive functions like "Always One Selected". If a bookmark is discovered to be broken, recreating it after the changes have been made is the best method to get back to a working state.
