Hello Everyone,

Is there a method in which we can schedule automated backups of all apps, configurations etc using QMC.

Thank You !

Yes,

Qlik provides a tool called Repository Snapshot Manager (RSM) to do it for you.

Please note that it's not working very well with Shared Persistence (QS 3.2), but works perfectly with Sync Persistence so far.

Here is the info:

You just need to create a BAT file and schedule it's execution via Windows Scheduler on the server.

Please note that RSM stops Qlik Services while running, so your system might be down for few minutes...

P.S. When applicable, please mark this answer Correct or Helpful.

Why would you use this tool to backup the repository in addition to nightly backups or snapshots of the server?  What are the benefits or costs of using it?

Mark,

It's Qlik-specific and works fine when you need to recreate QS environment on the server with different capacity, for example. And it's much faster than the whole server Backup/Restore process (3-4 mins in my case with couple hundreds apps)...
