NPrinting API Setup Requirements

Notices:

The Rest Connector 2.11 is available with the Qlik Sense April 2019 release

  • The Rest Connector 2.11 resolves a software defect that was discovered in version v2.10
  • Ensure the Qlik rest connector equal or greater than v1.3 but lower than Rest Connector v2.10 is installed on the computer that you are running the QVW reload from. Otherwise download and install 2.11 version (or higher) of the Rest Connector
  • Upgrade to QS February 2019 Patch 4, QS April 2019 Release or higher for Qlik Sense related issues
  • NOTE: The version of QlikView that you are using must be compatible with this connector. Copy pasting newer versions of the rest connector may not work.
  • You must use the respective QlikView or Qlik Sense Server installation program to install the rest connector correctly.
  • QlikView: The file can be verified at "C:\Program Files\Common Files\QlikTech\Custom Data\QvRestConnector" and right click the QvRestConnector.exe and check the details tab for the rest connector version
  • Qlik Sense: The file can be verified at "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Qlik\Custom Data\QvRestConnector" right click the QvRestConnector.exe and check the details tab for the rest connector version

*Note: The Qlik Rest connectors are not supported for use where kerberos authentication is present. See details here: Feature Request: Qlik REST connector should be able to support connections to server with Kerberos a...

*Before proceeding below please note that you should be user that is a member of the local administrators group on the NPrinting server. You may use the existing NPrinting server service account which has these permissions assigned during NP server installation to perform these actions. Domain accounts are required (Local windows accounts are not supported. See NPrinting installation requirements. https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/Content/NPrinting/DeployingQVNprinting/Deploying.htm)

Setup Requirements - QlikView

  • Ensure that NPrinting February 2018 or higher is installed
  • Ensure that you inserted valid rest GET and POST connection strings into your load script. See attached R&D article for details
  • Ensure the Qlik rest connector equal or greater than v1.3 but lower than Rest Connector v2.10 is installed on the computer that you are running the QVW reload from. Otherwise download and install 2.11 version (or higher) of the Rest Connector
  • The QvRest Connector software must be installed on the NPrinting Engine/Server computer where the QV desktop is installed.

Setup Requirements - Qlik Sense

  • Older Qlik Sense versions: Qlik Sense April 2019 is necessary to leverage defect fixes in QV Rest Connector v2.11. (Lower versions of QS but no less than Feb. 2018 Qlik Sense, can be use but only if they contain QVRestConnector 1.3)
  • Newer Qlik Sense versions: To bypass a number of defect issue in the rest connector, upgrade to June (SR 1) or later (preferably September 2020 Qlik Sense) to leverage defect fixes in the rest connector that directly affect NPrinting. Your load script will also need to be updated as per https://community.qlik.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Qlik-Sense-June-2020-connecting-to-NPrinting-getting-qu...
  • Valid rest GET and POST connections must be inserted into your load script. See attached R&D article for details
  • Rest connector is installed with Qlik Sense. Setting up GET and POST connections may be done via the Qlik Sense hub/data load manager ideally as a domain user that is a member of the local administrators group.

Setup Requirements - QlikView and Qlik Sense

  • In the NPrinting Web Console under 'Admin'>'Users', check the "domain account" field and ensure you have a windows domain user account mapped to NPrinting User user account for use with NPrinting API's. This NP account must have also have the NPrinting 'Administrator' role assigned to it.
  • The domain account that is setup in the previous point must also be used for the respective GET and POST connection configurations
  • In order to accept POST calls from the Sense server, you MUST add the Qlik Sense and or QlikView server hostname address among the NPrinting Trusted Origins.
  • The host name format in the NPrinting 'Trusted Origins' should be the same format as the proxy address used in setting up NPrinting connections to Qlik Sense apps
  • Rest Compatibility with QV and QS can be found here: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/connectors/Subsystems/REST_connector_help/Content/Connectors_REST/REST-c...

  • See section - "Adding the QlikView Server as a trusted origin".
  • NOTE: the same steps apply to adding a Qlik Sense server as an NPrinting Trusted Origin in order to allow NPrinting API's to function normally
