Hi,

How can I embed pdf files to Qlik sense App? I am using hub for development.

Version - Qlik sense November 2017

You can't bundle in qlik sense.

What we usually do is to put a web server in front of Qlik sense and have a folder where we put the pdfs...

This is also best practice...

Kind Regards,

Dion

Can I put the pdf in server/shared folder and provide a link to it? Like a url used to access hub/qmc?

Re: Embed pdf file - Qlik Sense

There are 2 options:

1. Let Qlik manage the security and the content => Use the content library

2. Manage your own shared folder and security with a web browser... ==> use Ngninx, Apache or IIS.

Re: Reverse Proxy and Authentication port redirect

The former is easier to do...

Kind Regards,

Re: Embed pdf file - Qlik Sense

I would like to go with the first option.

I have created a new content library and uploaded my pdf file and created security rule.

Now, how can I access the pdf from my Qlik sense app?
