How to distribute NPrinting Office reports to SharePoint

How to upload a Qlik NPrinting report to SharePoint.

Environment:

 

Resolution

 

NPrinting does not have a specific SharePoint connector.

 

The following workarounds can be applied:

 

1. Distribute a Qlik NPrinting Office report by saving it in the SharePoint folder.

The best way to do this is to:

  • In NPrinting 16: set the SharePoint folder as the "Task output folder" in Task > General
  • In NPrinting 17: Add the SharePoint folder as a destination folder to the task. Destination folders are set via the NP WebConsole under Destination > Folders

If you do this, the report will be saved directly in the SharePoint folder.

This solution works with NPrinting Service only if the NPrinting service user (the NPrinting Engine User in NPrinting 17) has full access to the SharePoint folder.

An absolute UNC path is required. See Technet - Access Sharepoint via UNC?

 


 2. Adding content to SharePoint via e-mail might be a convenient option if your configuration allows it:

Review Add content to sites by sending e-mail from Microsoft.
