Hi,

Yeah, you can find it from session.log file.

File location by default, it can be found in %ProgramData%\QlikTech\QlikviewServer.

Hi devarasu07

Can you explain this one?

  • Client Machine Identification: The ID of the client machine that opened the session.

Is ID = IP address?

Re: Detect IP user?

Hi,

as mentioned earlier you can find it from User Session Log file

if you have sever access go --> windows - start (win key +R) then navigate to below location

%ProgramData%\QlikTech\QlikviewServer\Logs

Note: if you wanted to display this client IP address info. at dashboard level try to configure below document analyzer for qlik sense (try to search app from qlik branch or rob blog post) 

PS: i've configured document analyzer for qlik view and able to display that user IP address.
