To provide to QlikView administrators and developers visibility into their QlikView deployments i.e. to display metadata collected from QVW applications and QlikView Server & Publisher log, the Governance Dashboard reads data from folder paths set in the Configuration tab of the Governance Dashboard.
From the folder paths to scan (see above below), the scanner descends into all sub-directories of each directory to find all QVW, QVD and QVX files to analyze.
1. Does the “Governance Dashboard” scan all the files in the folder or/and sub-directories?
No, the Governance Dashboard only scans the following files:
2. On the “lineage” tab of Governance Dashboard, there is a list of CSV/TXT etc…, did the “Governance Dashboard” scanned those files?
•.log (TaskResult, Session, Events...)
•.xml (Tasks related)
No, it does not scan "CSV" or "TXT" source files. These files are listed in "lineage" tab not because these are physically scanned by the Dashboard but because these files are in the xml metadata of the QVD/QVX/QVW. So, when the Dashboard scans QVWs or QVDs which have source data from CSV/TXT files, those CSV/TXT files are listed in Lineage.3. Can I limit the scan to specific QVWs or QVDs within the configuration?
Yes, using “File & Folders to Exclude”
, exclusion patterns can be entered (separated by vertical bar | characters) to exclude individual files or entire directories from the metadata scan.
