The QlikView Server service has 3 logging levels exposed in the Management Console interface:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High.

There is a fourth logging level equivalent to debug logging that is not visible from the QlikView Management Console. 

This logging level can only be set by modifying the settings.ini file and will result in a large amount of logging data being created with Debug severity. We recommend monitoring file sizes and archiving files where needed.





You can enable Debug logging for the QlikView Server service by modifying the server's settings.ini

  1. Stop the QlikView Server Service
  2. Navigate to C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer
  3. Locate the settings.ini
  4. Open it in a text editor.
  5. Modify the file by:

    In the [Settings 7] section, locate: Verbosity= 
    Change the value to 900. If the line does not exist, create it.

    Create the line SystemLogVerbosity=5 

  6. Save the file.
  7. Start the QlikView Server service
