You might have different map servers for your DEV and PROD environments. Is there a way to configure the different server strings for the Map Object in Qlik Sense? Currently you can only enter a fix server in the Server URL field. Then if you publish to the PROD environment you have to change the Server URL manually each time.
Since a few releases back it is now possible to set an empty URL in the map object, for which the map then will use (in the following order):
1. If there is a property called "server" in the file "...\StaticContent\Extensions\ideviomap\settings.js" it will use that value as the URL.
2. If not it will default to the normal "https://maps.qlikcloud.com"
For the desktop version, the installer will fill in this file based on what you enter there, but not for the server version installer for some reason (I guess because it skips the normal installer since you "install" the extensions via the QMC instead).
It is possible to do, you just need to do it manually (at the moment). And then repeat the process after each upgrade as the file is replaced.
What you have to do is to open the file ...\StaticContent\Extensions\ideviomap\settings.js, then edit it so that it looks like this:
Or where ever your map server is located, and on the staging environment edit it to point to the staging server.
Then just make sure that all the maps in your apps don't have a specific URL set in the properties.
