Article Number: 000052127 | Last Modified: 2018/11/21
As of June 2017 11.11.1 release it is no longer supported to attach HTML files to Qlik Sense apps via Hub due to behavior change.
User will receive the error message below or similar:An error occurred
Unable to upload file '<file name>'. This file type is not supported.
- Qlik Sense June 2017 (11.11.1) and newer.
This change was made by development intentionally. The file type html option listed when browsing for file to attach should be ignored.
Uploading HTML attachments opens up vulnerabilities to XSS attacks, hence it has been blocked in the June release (and newer) for security reasons.
The file content can still be imported by using "Shared Files" ,pointing to "Web file", or using "Web connector" when adding data to the app via Qlik Sense Hub.
