Can't connect to Azure Server with Qlik Analytics Plugin for Visual Studio

The documentation says

Specify the following:

  Host with or without port.
http://server.domain.comSmiley Tongueort/  

  With or without virtual proxy. 
http://server.domain.com[Smiley Tongueort]/[VirtualProxy]

however, when I supply the web address for the Qlik Sense server I get an error message - "Can not connect to that server, check host and try again!"

I've scoured the web, tried every conceivable combination of possible entries and several settings adjustments to simply establish connectivity in order to test the plugin with no success/progress. The documentation seems to overlook via brevity the most basic step in using this tool.

Any advice/insight would be greatly appreciated.

Is anyone able to shed any light on this topic? Or offer any suggestions?

Hi,

At the moment The Qlik Analytics Plugin for Visual Studio only supports NTLM. Is your Azure Server on the same domain / AD?

Hi Curt,

Could be a possible with the active directory settings or some privilages. Did you confirm that with your infrastructure team?

Re: Can't connect to Azure Server with Qlik Analytics Plugin for Visual Studio

Thank you for your reply!

When you say "is you azure server on the same domain / AD?", what are you referring to? The domain of the machine with Visual Studio installed that I'm using to attempt connection?

The Azure server is setup using local users accounts. The domain would simply be the server name.

The PC with Visual Studio is not on a domain - so it's domain is simply the computer name.

Thanks for replying!

AD is not a variable in this case and I have full privileges to all aspects. If you're suggesting there is a setting I can manipulate, would you expand?

Re: Can't connect to Azure Server with Qlik Analytics Plugin for Visual Studio

Hi,

When you connect to the Azure server you will be connecting as "mycomputerdomian\myuserid".

Here are some points to check:

Does "mycomputerdomian\myuserid" exist with the required  credentiales on your Azure server?

Does "mycomputerdomian\myuserid" exist in the Qlik Sense QMC as a user with the correct credentials?

Is "mycomputerdomian" or the ip-adress of that computer white listed in the QMC (see Virtual proxies - Advanced)?

Please let me know if this helped you or if you still have problems.

Best regards

Re: Can't connect to Azure Server with Qlik Analytics Plugin for Visual Studio

The problem I am having is when I launch Visual Studio and attempt to connect to the Qlik Sense Server (hosted in Azure environment).

The only option when connecting via the Qlik Analytics VS plugin is to provide the host url. There is no area to provide any user credentials.

So once the url is in the popup dialog, I click okay and (almost) immediately receive a "Can not connect to that server, check host and try again!"

What am I missing / doing wrong???

Re: Can't connect to Azure Server with Qlik Analytics Plugin for Visual Studio

Hi,

I have created a Qlik Sense instance on a Azure virtual machine (Windows Server 2008 R2) and after getting all configurations done properly I have managed to connect with the Qlik Analytics for Visual Studio Plugin running from my development computer.

To help you I need more information on your setup and configuration.

Are you running VS on the Azure Server or on your development machine?

Is the Azure server on a domain or a workgroup (stand alone)? If on a domain is it the same as your development computer?

Can you access the qmc and the hub on the Azure server:

* with localhost (http and https)?

* with internal computername (http and https)?

* with external computername (http and https)?

Can you access the qmc and the hub from your development or a local computer with the external (azure) computername (http and https)?

More questions will come depending on your answers.

Re: Can't connect to Azure Server with Qlik Analytics Plugin for Visual Studio

Thanks - I appreciate your help.

Are you running VS on the Azure Server or on your development machine?

VS is run from development machine

Is the Azure server on a domain or a workgroup (stand alone)? If on a domain is it the same as your development computer?

Azure server is on the local domain (i.e. the subdomain portion of the cloudapp.net url)

Can you access the qmc and the hub on the Azure server:

Yes

* with localhost (http and https)?

Yes - but only from within RDP session on server; Not from development machine

* with internal computername (http and https)?

* with external computername (http and https)?

These two are the same (if I understand what you're asking). I can access using the following (all required un/pw):

  • http(s)://localhost/hub --> using browser on server
  • http(s)://computername/hub --> using browser on server
  • http(s)://computername.cloudapp.net/hub --> from any browser
  • http(s)://ip_address/hub --> from any browser

Can you access the qmc and the hub from your development or a local computer with the external (azure) computername (http and https)?

Not clear what is being asked but answer above may cover this one too.
