Qlik Sense: change default app Path with environment variables

Hello!

This is my firts post. I've a question:

In the version of Qlik Sense Desktop (Win 7 environment), I need change the default Apps path, using environment variables of Windows.

I tried this, but doesn't work:

-- Settings.ini file:

[Settings 7]

StandardReload=0

DocumentDirectory=%QLIK_APPS%

where %QLIK_APPS% is a environment variable with the path of the my Apps.

The log of System Engine of Qlik Sense is:

Severity    Timestamp    ProcessId    ThreadId    UserId    Server Started    Message

...

INFO    20160505T131817.022+0200    11976    20368    Internal\Engine    20160505T131813.000+0200    Mount: Found Mount  at location %QLIK_APPS%  browsable

...

How can I change app folder in settings.ini using environment variables?

Thanks in advance.

Hi sangram,

Thanks so much for you reply, but I want to use dynamic path (with ¿environment variables is the way?).

In Sense Server 2.1 File Storage Locations uses:

[Settings 7]

DocumentDirectory=c:\appfolder

where the path for Apps of Qlik Sense is static.

I need use a dynamic path, like:

[Settings 7]

...

DocumentDirectory=%QLIK_APPS%

where the environment variable QLIK_APPS containt the path dynamicaly.

Thanks!
