When creating a new Folder connection in Sense you are not able to see your mapped network drives in the list.
Statement "Execute cmd.exe /C dir Z:;"
with Z being a mapped network drive doesn't work, although this works with the same Qlik Sense service account in Command Prompt.
Qlik Sense any version
We have no support for showing mapped network drives as it is today. The problem is that Microsofts API to list devices not returns mapped network shares if they are not connected by the user context we run, i.e. engine process.
This is something that will be investigated for future Sense releases.
Mapped network drive is not yet supported as of the latest version of Qlik Sense. You can also observe this when creating a folder connection: Network drives do not show up in the available drive list. This is documented on the product help site
(please refer to section "Loading files from local and network file folders
" in this page).
A work-around solution is to use the full share path instead of network drive, for example Execute cmd.exe /C dir \\dc1\share > E:\TestData\mkdir.log;
or to manually insert the UNC path to the drive.
