Reinforcing QlikView Server November 2017Article Number: 000043663 | Last Modified: 2018/06/08
- Changes with Shared File Format
- New Script Evaluator
- Publisher Improvements
Q: Can we see the size of export of data in to Excel (record count and size of the data)
A: QlikView does not record the size of the exported Excel file. Since you can follow the action in the Audit log, you can see what was selected prior to being exported. This should give you a good idea of how much data was exported.
Q: Can we restrict how much data can be exported to excel?
A: Currently there are no limitations that can be applied specifically for Exports. Reducing how much data the end user has access to comes much higher up in the process flow, that would be done by reducing the document or applying Section Access to filter out what can be seen per end user.
Q: If you got different set of developers e.g. Supply chain, Marketing, Finance can the publisher send emails to these different group if their jobs fail? Can the email send logs to the developer?
A: If your developers are defined as Document Administrators and each group has their own Document folder defined under the QlikView Distribution Service you can tick the box "Alert Email" and they will receive Alert Emails for their own documents tasks.
Q: Hi, we are planning to upgrade from QV 11.20 to 12.x. What is the upgrade path please?
A: The upgrade procedure is covered in the Help for QlikView. http://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/November2017/Subsystems/Server/Content/QlikView-Server/QVSRM_Prerequisites.htm
Q: What about the power tools for QV 12.2?
A: The Power Tools are not an officially supported software. They are however being maintained and we are looking at having them updated top cover the new functionality, primarily the Shared File Viewer and the Shared File Connector.
Q: Any improvements to QMC interface/features in Nov 2017 release?
A: For the QMC specifically there has been several updates. The most visible one is that you can now read the Document log in the QMC when looking at a Task. We have also made the QMC more responsive by enabling caching of elements that has not been updated since you looked at them last, so we no longer need to talk to each individual service every time.
Q: Do you have storage notes documented in the help or release notes?
A: We do have recommendations on how Storage should be set up when you are running QlikView with Publisher. http://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/November2017/Subsystems/Server/Content/QlikView-Server/QVSRM_Clustering_Publisher.htm
Q: Do we have any tools to edit Shared File?
A: The QlikView Management Console allows you to work with the objects created by users and stored in the Shared file for every document hosted on the server. The QVS.exe also contains built-in functionality as described in the online help: http://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/November2017/Subsystems/Server/Content/QlikView-Server/QVSRM_Cleaning_Shared_Files.htm And lastly, on Qlik Community you can also find the Qlik PowerTools that allows you to interact with the Shared file, note however that these have not yet been updated to work with the new TShared file format introduced in QlikView November 2017
Q: In relation to the redesign project, we’ve made a new application, as you know. A challenge many of our users will encounter when we close the current application is that they have to re-make their bookmarks as bookmarks are saved on the application, is there in fact a way in which we centrally can migrate or know the details of all users’ bookmarks so that we can either migrate them or store them centrally?
A: There is no supported way of moving bookmarks between documents. One of the challenges comes from the fact that the bookmarks reference object IDs in the documents, which might or might not be the same in the new or changed document, making the behavior of a moved bookmark very unpredictable, which is not normally a desired outcome.
Q: We tried migrating a shared file that was created in 11.2 SR15 to Tshared. We found that the bookmarks were gone. We restarted QV service and that restored the bookmarks. Is it always necessary to restart QV service after a migration to Tshared
A: This behavior likely comes from the fact that the .Shared file is loaded into memory along with the document, and then resides in memory. A restart of the QlikView Server results in the new TShared file being loaded into memory instead.
Q: Are DocumentCALs still lost if the qvw file is deleted?
A: The same principles still applies. Document CALs link to document references, meaning that the link is broken if the document disappears. They should be removed from the document via the QMC prior to deleting the Document.
Q: Does QVW have size limit?
A: No. There are no file size limits to an QVW file. There might however be practical limits as a very large QVW will be slow to load into memory and might result in a very slow end user experience. Best practices say to keep the file size down to provide the best possible end user experience.
Q: Does QVD have size limit?
A: No. There are no file size limits to QVDs.
Q: if i am on 12.10.20400.0 SR6 how big is the upgrade to the Qlikview Nov 2017?
A: The changes are small, and the upgrade should be relatively straight-forward.
Q: QlikView 12 does it work better with certain CPU cores?
A: All version of QlikView (and Qlik Sense) utilizes memory management technologies that lends itself better to an Intel Architecture CPUs. The Qlik Scalability Center on our community is focused on testing and recommending Hardware and regularly publishes updated test results. https://community.qlik.com/groups/qlikview-scalability
