    Host Name: Should the ip address of the server suffice or should we have a domain name as well

    Karthik Vamsi Tadepalli


      I am trying to connect to Qlik Sense server via Qlik Engine API, using qsocks.js node module.

      In the config file, i have to give information regarding the host name,

      Following is the code for the same.


      const qsocks = require('qsocks');


      var config = {

         host: 'server',

         isSecure: true,

         origin: 'localhost'


      qsocks.Connect(config).then(global => {




      In the above mentioned code,

      the host name field, what should be the format of the server name,

      should the host name be written as its displayed on the browser when we launch QlikSense Hub,

      or should it be and ip address of the server followed by the app name and so on.


      Please help me understand how the host name is configured when installing Qlik.
