Connect to 2 different sense servers from Nprinting

    Scope :

     

    In order to connect Nprinting to a Qlik Sense App, you need to install the Sense certificates in the Nprinting server, between other actions.

    Currently, there is a command line that will do that for you. But the problem is if you try to install a second certificate, for a second QlikSense connection, the first one will be replaced. Basically you can connect to only one server, if you use the command line.

     

    So my purpose here is: to show the different ways to install Qlik Sense certificates to from Nprinting 17.

    Also, this way you can create 2 connections to 2 different qlik Sense servers, a dev and a prod one, for example.

     

    Few point to consider :

     

    • I am using Nprinting 17 June version
    • It’s not possible to have 2 sense connections in the same Nprinting app.


    Installing the certificates :

     

    • The certificate from the first Sense server,  the installation is automatic with the .exe file, as  described in this link :Installing Sense Certificates
    • The certificate from the second Sense server,  has to be installed manually, following the steps in the attached document in this link.

    Also remember that :

     

    • You must be connected with an user that have RootAdmin authorization in both Qlik Sense servers
    • The certificate has to be generated with the Nprinting Server computer name. If you are not sure, add 3 computers to the certificate: 1 full name, 1 short name and 1 with the IP ( all referring to the Nprinting Server )
    • You may have to add the Nprinting server path to the local intranet sites
    • Ensure that the Include secret key check box is selected, and the Certificate password field is left blank. when exporting the certificates.

     

     

    Hope that helps,
