Logging in Qlik ODBC Connector Package consists of two different parts.

  • Qlik ODBC Connector logging
  • ODBC driver logging

 

Qlik ODBC Connector Package Logging

    • Edit Qlik ODBC Connector Package config file. Default location; C:\Program Files\Common Files\Qlik\Custom Data\QvOdbcConnectorPackage\QvODBCConnector.exe.config
    • Locate the LoggingLevel setting and change the value to ALL
      <setting name="LoggingLevel" serializeAs="String">
	        <value>ALL</value>
      </setting>
    • Logs can be collected from C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Custom Data\QvODBCConnector\Log 
    • Disable debug logging after finished troubleshooting, by setting LoggingLevel setting and change the value to INFO
      <setting name="LoggingLevel" serializeAs="String">
	        <value>INFO</value>
      </setting>

Qlik ODBC Driver Logging

Warning: Modifications to the Windows Registry cannot be supported by Qlik. Always ensure you have a viable backup before beginning this procedure. Modify the registry at your own risk.
Note: Older Qlik Sense versions may use the registry path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Simba\Simba SQL Server ODBC Driver\Driver
  • Open Windows Registry Editor (RegEdit.exe)
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Qlik\DRIVER_NAME\Driver 
    Replace DRIVER_NAME with the actual subfolder matching the desired data source
  • Create the following String values, if they are missing
  • Change the LogLevel value to desired log level, as advised by Qlik Support
    • 0 = Disabled
    • 3 = Detailed
    • 6 = Debug
  • Logs can be collected from the path defined in LogPath value in Step 3
  • Disable logging after finished troubleshooting, by setting LogLevel to 0
