Not possible to import Apps with App Content if the shared persistence shared folder double backslashes(\\)Article Number: 000038680 | Last Modified: 2018/06/12
If the path was specified to \\Machinename\share\ (with a final backslash), it will cause subfolder paths to contain double backslashes
For example: \\QLIKSERVER3\Share\\StaticContent
This does not cause any issue in most of features in Qlik Sense, but for the app import, it will prevent apps containing app contents to be imported.
The solution to this is to modify the cluster settings using the diagnostic tool (recommended, available from the September 2017 release)
In other release, you will need to make the necessary changes in the "ServiceClusterSettingsSharedPersistenceProperties" table in the repository following the steps below:
1) Stop all services except the Repository Database service.
2) Open the command line as an administrator:
psql -U postgres -p 4432
(You will be asked to input the password for the repository)
UPDATE "ServiceClusterSettingsSharedPersistenceProperties" SET "RootFolder" = '\\QLIKSERVER3\Share', "AppFolder"=\\QLIKSERVER3\Share\Apps',"StaticContentRootFolder"='\\QLIKSERVER3\Share\StaticContent', "Connector32RootFolder"='\\QLIKSERVER3\Share\CustomData',"Connector64RootFolder"='\\QLIKSERVER3\Share\CustomData', "ArchivedLogsRootFolder"='\\QLIKSERVER3\Share\ArchivedLogs';
3) Start all Qlik Services
