Schedule reports via Qliksense

I read here: Re: Printing Reports on Qlik Sense? that allowing automated scheduling of reports via email was on the roadmap for Qliksense so I am just checking in to see if it's available now? Thanks!

Hello Rama,

I´m not skilled in java script, can you help me out with configuration of your tool?

Re: Schedule reports via Qliksense

A bit of java knowledge is required unfortunately. There is no coding required but you need to know how to update the properties file and run the java program.

Download the files from github

Update properties file to include names of the sheets you want to print, and a few other things

Run the program

That's pretty much it.

Re: Schedule reports via Qliksense

Hi Rama !,

Thanks for posting this.  I am not inexperienced.  I have updated the properties file and updated the .bat file but when I execute it on the command line, it just fails.  I'm looking at the .bat file and I'm a little confused.  The first portion the \lib\ section has backward slashes and the second portion has forward slashes.

java -cp .;d:{path to deploy base}\lib\*;d:{path to deploy base} com/qlik/automation/CronTrigger

I think I'm confuse as how to finalize this.    I have basically copied this directly into my E drive and I'm trying to excute it,,, what am I doing wrong?  Here's what mine looks like:

@echo off

java -cp .;E:\qliksense-report-scheduler-master\lib\*;E:/qliksense-report-scheduler-master/qliksense-report-scheduler/src/com/qlik/automation/CronTrigger

pause

exit /b

After executing the .bat all I get is the java help menu.

Just for fyi, here's a snap of my properties file:

hostName=https://qlik-01/sense/app/0d69ccdf-7bc4-44a4-a6e2-b0f5cc4f9033/sheet/

tempDirectory=E:/Temp/

smtp.userName=

smtp.password=

stmp.host=server.domain.com

stmp.port=25

smtp.auth=

smtp.starttls.enable=

dailyReport.sheets=Task Details

dailyReport.recipients=me@mydomain.com

dailyReport.fromAddress=QlikBI@s1qlik.mydomain.com

Re: Schedule reports via Qliksense

John,

  Try running the java -cp... from the command line and not as a .bat file. Also, check if class files are there in the path you are referencing, otherwise you will have to compile the code and run the command. Let me know if you run into issues.

Re: Schedule reports via Qliksense

Hello john.varney‌,

I know this thread is a bit old but were you able to put this to work properly?

It's a really urgent requisite I have now and I'm struggling with the configuration.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Schedule reports via Qliksense

Hello Andre,

The way this is done today (out-of-the-box) is with our Qlik Nprinting product:

Qlik NPrinting 17 - Product Tour - YouTube

In this example - I just took 2 chart objects from my Qlik Sense App - and placed them in my NPrinting Designer.

Re: Schedule reports via Qliksense

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your answer. I understand that NPrinting is the "proper" way to do this.

I was trying to do it without NPrinting as a more flexible (cheap) way

Thanks!
