The latest version of qlik-cli adds resumable uploads for large Qlik Sense applications and bug fixes to improve overall usability. Here are the updates.
You can now upload large apps to SaaS tenants using qlik-cli using the
import command. Use the
--resumable switch to instruct the cli to handle the
upload as a large file.
When you upload an app using qlik-cli, a nice animated bar appears displaying the progress.
File piping allows you to combine commands where the output of one may be used as the input of the next command you issue.
Aliases enable you to create shorthand commands for hard to remember long
commands. For example, say you run a command frequently to find the guid of an
application in your tenant,
$(qlik item ls --resourceType app --name. You can
use the alias command to create a shortcut it into something like
qlik getAppGuid consumer+sales. This returns the complete JSON object for the
consumer+sales resource in the items collection.
--limit switch enables you to return a number of app resource objects per
page ranging from 1 to 100.
Command switches and flags that are experimental features are labeled as such for your information.
Use of the temporary upload service in qlik-cli caused problems with large app
uploads and resumability. This problem has been fixed and implemented through
the resumable switch in the
qlik app import command.
In prior CLI versions,
qlik reload get was not sending a correct response.
This issue has been resolved.
