URL Parameters in QlikView

Hi All,

This requirement seems to be somewhat tricky to me, and may be you people can help me out on same.

We have a web portal, where when the user will hit the button, a PDF should get generated.

The PDF will be a predefined report from the QlikView application with updated data.

The access point, login screen etc, should not come into picture.

Can anyone, please tell me, how we can achieve the same, using a URL.

What all parameters, we have to pass to URL, so that on click of a button in web portal, directly the PDF will be generated.

Please assist.

Thanks & Regards,

Possible solutions

1.NPrinting tool, on schedule interval it it will generate the required report in required format and will place the file in the share location or will email the user directly

2.Use of Macro in Qlikview, you could hit the specific sheet or report from the URL parameter and you could set the triggers to generate the PDF file

3.Make use of QV server to send the PDF report periodically

Re: URL Parameters in QlikView

Thanks for all the answers.

But nothing fits tto solution.

To clear the req, I have a web portal, where i have a button called "get pdf".

The PDF will be predefined report created using the "Edit Report" section.

But, user should not be able to see, the access point, the application etc.

once the user hit the button in web portal -

-     reload will happen for QVW on server

-     Document gets opened on server

-     Predefined report will get printed and the same link will be provided to user
