  3. Use default port or change if needed.  

    Note:  In a production environment, Qlik GeoAnalytics must be installed on a separate server from that of the Qlik Sense Server.  Therefore, select ports 80 and 443 as defaults.  However, when installing for a proof of concept (POC) or trial, you may install GeoAnalytics Server on the same Windows server as the Qlik Sense Server.  For this scenario, change the ports from 80 and 443 (e.g. 8080 and 4430).

  1. The xml file contains a number of services that will show up in the window but they remain disabled. Check ENABLED for all the new services in the following order:
    1. Enable all services that are not for module geoanalytics or module webmap5, service map.
    2. Enable all remaining services.
  2. If a service in the list turns red when enabled it means there was an error.  You can hover the mouse over the service to read more about the error. To fix the most common errors, first make sure the zip files were extracted correctly.  Then, restart each red service (disable then enable). Restarting the services should fix the most common error that is caused by enabling services in the incorrect order.  Each error is also represented in the log (Server Administration -> View Log).

 

Confirming the Installation

  1. Open the GeoAnalytics Server Administration console and select WebMap5 Module > Diagnostics Pages > Default map > Go To Diagnostics Pages > Simple Test

Hello @avl_dlimi

There was no Server release for August 2021, so that's accurate. If you are worried about compatibility, you can find a compatibility table here:  GeoAnalytics server supported versions.

 

All the best,
Sonja
