Embed QlikView app in Web Page

We have to build a Web page using Django/html-css and embed QlikView app in Web page.

I  embedded qlikview app in the web page using <iframe>. But the purpose of this integration of QlikView in webpage is to pass the CurrentSelections of QlikView to Webpage, where the CurrentSelections can be used for other purposes.

Please guide me on how this can be achieved. I'm very new to QlikView, have been googling last couple of days and reading through every material didn't get much information. I have tried reading CurrentSeletioon values by using JS GetSleetced. contentWindow etc options, but it wont work.

Please help. Thanks for your time

Re: Embed QlikView app in Web Page

Hi ,

1. Create a variables and store the current selections.

2. Create a button event/trigger to pass that to your web page by opening a URL option.

Note: This will work if the selection are few/ default selections.

Re: Embed QlikView app in Web Page

Hi

1. Create Variables in Qlikview to assign the current selections. For each field you need to create separate variable.

2. Create a URL with Parameters. the passed parameters should be accepted in web.

3. Create a button with action to open a URL which you created in step 2.

Thanks Krishnapriya Arumugam,

It has to be dynamic. We need to do this for couple of qlikview app's on the webpage.

If we modify the currentselections, the new selections should be passed to Cognos.

Can you please guide me , if this is achievable

Re: Embed QlikView app in Web Page

Yes the selections are dynamic but you should limit the parameters that you are passing.

Challenge will be the URL size should not grow and you need to have some SAML query while passing the parameter into Cognos.

Current selections values should be placed in Variables and it will change automatically.

Will share you some sample qvw shortly.
