Trigger QV  Task using command line arguments

    Step 1) First schedule a task in QMC to reload your document. The task should be triggered "on an external event". It will be just waiting for a signal (see fig 1)

    2)  Download the Enhanced version of QlikTech QMSEDX program from here and save it on your system or the QV server box.

     

    3) Now type the command to trigger the task from command line in a text file and save it as a bat file (you can convert a .txt file into bat file by changing the file extension to .bat) in the same location as that of the downloaded  .  The syntax of the command is as follows:

     

    QMSEDX.exe -task="NameOfTheTask " -qms="NameOfTheQVServerBox"  -password="PasswordOfTheTask"

     

    Note: If the executables are present in a different location then tweak the command like this

     

    "PathOfTheFolder\QMSEDX.exe"-task="NameOfTheTask " -qms="NameOfTheQVServerBox"  -password="PasswordOfTheTask"

     

    4) Name of the task can be found here (See fig 3 )
