Qlik Sense Websocket Connectivity Tester


Qlik Sense Websocket Connectivity Tester

Qlik Sense use HTTP, HTTPS and Web Socket to transfer the information in/out from Qlik Sense.  It is very important to check if all these protocols are working correctly.  Especially when there are external network policy, firewall, reverse proxy, etc in front of Qlik Sense, it is more necessary to make sure Web Socket works fine.   So with the tester, all connections should be green on the return page. 

Please note, this tool is not Qlik official tool, hence user needs to run it on their risk and management.   To do the test, Qlik Sense server requires internet connection. 

The detail steps are documented in the attached file. 

If the Websocket connectivity tester fails, then a firewall, proxy, or other 3rd party component is blocking or not yet able to support websocket connections. Further investigate the network components and browser settings involved.

What to do if any of them fail?

Verify that WebSocket is enabled in the network infrastructure, such as firewalls, browsers, reverse proxies, etc.
