If Kerberos Authentication is used in Qlik Sense, a failure or error will occur

If Kerberos Authentication is used in Qlik Sense then the following error can be observed:
Error: QVX_UNEXPECTED_END_OF_DATA: HTTP protocol error 401 (Unauthorized).
Currently, Kerberos Authentication is not supported with REST Connector. This is currently under investigation by R&D for future enhancement. The only workaround is not to use Kerberos Authentication.
In addition, the License and Operation Monitoring Apps will not reload anymore if using Kerberos. When trying to Reload them, the following error is observed:Error: QVX_UNEXPECTED_END_OF_DATA: HTTP protocol error 401 (Unauthorized):'Negotiate' authentication schema provided by the web-service is not supported or your credentials are not valid.
- Qlik Sense: June 2017 and newer
In Qlik Sense June 2017 and newer versions, the reload of monitoring apps fails if Kerberos Authentication is enabled. The Kerberos authentication is not currently supported by the REST connector.
Switch the Qlik Sense Monitoring Apps to use Certificates rather than relying on Windows Authentication:
The article "Monitoring Apps Troubleshooting Tool
" provides details on how to switch the Monitoring Apps to use Certificates for authentication, ultimately bypassing the Kerberos restriction.
Disable Kerberos Authentication in the Proxy settings:
- In the Qlik Sense Management Console, open the Proxy (Central) and choose edit.
- With the Ports Properties visible, disable Kerberos authentication
