Re: Binary load from qvf file in Qlik Sense

Hi,

it is not possible on server because there is no .qvf

The file is stored with a ID as Name, without extension.

In the community there are some suggestions to store the tables from your source into .qvd and load them into your data model, maybe that helps.

Re: Binary load from qvf file in Qlik Sense

Hi Gulshan,

I had the same question this morning .

I can help you.

We have a multinode enviroment (shared persistence), thats why we can not absolute path

1: Create a data connection, which directly refers to a UID of the application.

The red attribute: Servername of Central Node

The yellow attribute: "QlikSense" is you Shared persistence attribute, its the same like in service cluster, i think it can be something else than "QlikSense" but you can view it in the QMC Service cluster:

2. Insert the binary Load

Because the data connection contains the direct link to the UID we dont have to refer the application anymore.

This works for me:

It has to be the same name , like your data connection

I hope this will help you.

Kind regards

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the reply...

I have already made the qvf, so is there any other way of taking binary load in QlikSense Server...

This is what I have done.

I created a data connection that points to the folder where QS stores the app files on the server.

Then in my app I add this line of code at the start:

BINARY [lib://QSApps/5136e435-5c3d-452c-b9d9-ef1bd2d0bdcb]; 

QSApps is the data connection name.  The code is the ID of the app that I want to binary load that I got from the QMC.

Yes , your solution will also work,

But you have to protect your data connections path very good, because with this data connection you can access all applications.

Kind regards

Re: Binary load from qvf file in Qlik Sense

So your data connection just points to the single app?  That would be more secure.  I had not thought of that.  Thanks
