Are existing QS enterprise customers entitled to Qlik alerting without additional cost ? If not, what is the license model ?
I don't like the fact that new features are not part of enterprise license. For that reason, I have been building alerting module of my own (free of charge). To do so you need to send alerts from the ETL script but obviously you could build a separate script for that purpose and thereby manipulate how often alerts are sent instead of sending alerts only when your main app is reloaded. The downside on this solution is that each KPI measure has to be pre-calculated into the data model and therefore I loose certain flexibility of dynamic measure calculations based on selections and variables etc.
For others who are interested building alerting by themselves could follow these steps:
Edit: I just got Q2G connector working which means that alerting can be set more dynamically instead of having to pre-calculate all KPI's into data model.
