QlikSense QRS Custom property

Hi Qlikies,

Is there a way to read the Custom property data from the QRS, logs. I tried to look into the Operations monitor, but there is no trace of any dimension holding the Custom property data. 

I would like to load the data of custom property and its associated users from the QRS or the operations monitor.

Thanks

Mark

It won't show in the Ops monitor, but it will in the DB, have you check the "CustomPropertyValues" table?

Maybe you could use the postgres ODBC connectors and look and load the table.

I have used the existing rest connectors to retrieve the custom properties for the Apps and Users, unfortunately it is not returning any data.

I have read in one of the blog posts like it is not recommended to use the Postgre SQL connection to query the QRS as the structure of the Tables might change. so i tried to read the QRS data using the REST API connection.

 

any thoughts why there is no data stored in the custom property Table.

Looking directly in the DB, I can see the Custom Properties data, so I am not sure what you doing with your connection? To explain why you can't see data.

I have used the Rest Connector supplied with QlikSense Server for operations monitor App.

I can see the Root Folder and the structure with custom properties, Tags, Streams etc., but there is no data in the Custom Properties Table.

Is there any other way to query the QlikSense Repository.  Also I tried to create a RESTconnection to read the  QRS tables and i am unable to get the JSON Data, Rather it is showing CSV as default option and not returning any data. any idea about this . I tried to use postmaster and query the QRS , it was returning the data and the same is not working using a REST connector. The Custom property table is always empty using the REST connector for Apps, Tasks, Users etc.,

Thanks

Mark

Hi Mark,

I've just been following the same path that you followed here trying to get custom property vales attached to users, via the existing monitor app connection. Did you ever get a solution that works?

Thanks.
