What is the impact of having Python installed in your Qlikview or Qlik Sense environment?Environments:
- Qlikview Server, all versions
- Qlik Sense Enterprise, all versions
Python is a programming language, installing it alone has no impact on Qlik Sense or Qlikview.
What matters is what Python is used for, and this may/may-not have an impact depending on what is done. If the Qlik product requirements are violated, for example by running a Python service that uses the same ports as Qlik products, then this will impact Qlik Sense or Qlikview. If the Python script consumes excessive server resources or locks files, then this may impact Qlik Sense or Qlikview.
In either case, it is not within the scope of Technical Support to advise on 3rd-party software and custom code. Please reach out to your Account Owner (or see How to Contact the Consulting Team?
) to discuss with Consulting Services and/or your Account Owner what specifically you are trying to accomplish and how it will affect the health of your Qlik environment.Note: Qlik does NOT support the 3rd party software mentioned and used in this documentation.
Note: Debugging or writing custom code is supported by the Qlik Professional Services or Presales teams. No Support or maintenance is implied or provided. Further customization is expected to be necessary and it is the responsibility of the end administrator to test and implement an appropriate rule for their specific use case.
