Disable creating log file for app reload in Qlik Server

Hello everyone,

At each app reload, Qlik Server creates a log file in C: / ProgramData / Qlik / Sense / Log / Script

There is a possibility to stop creating these log files?

Hi,

AFAIK, this option not available in current version, may be they might include in feature version.

for now you can try to re-start services/reboot the server this historical log might be cleared, if still not working create a windows batch file to auto archive/remove log file from server.

Regards,

Deva

I'm curious, why do you want to suppress these logfiles?

For security reasons, the app script is encrypted, but in the script log file the script appears unscrambled.

Re: Disable creating log file for app reload in Qlik Server

My assumption is that you are referring to a script that encrypts the actual data loaded into Qlik Sense. The script it self can not be encrypted, as it resides inside the app file which is not encrypted by Qlik Sense.

The script log only shows the actual script execution, it does not expose the data being processed. This means that disabling logging does not secure your script nor your data.

If you want to secure your environment you have to encrypt the drive where your files are stored, including the log and archived log locations. Keep in mind that log files can only be read by users with access to the storage location, so your OS level security also plays a significant role in ensuring security.

Toni,

It's possible to inject the script via API and never store the script in the app.  If someone was doing this for security or IP protection reasons, I could understand their concern about the script being in the logs.

For sure, there are a lot of possibilities. My main point is that the security focus should be a bit broader.
