Nprinting On-Demand request retention time. How long are On-Demand reports kept in memory?

How many days are On-Demand request coming from Qlik Sense or QlikView kept in memory? Where are they saved?

Is it possible to change this?



Environment:

 

The days NPrinting keeps an On-Demand request in memory depends on a parameter that can be added in the scheduler.config file.

 

Resolution:

 

The NPrinting On-Demand requests (both QlikView and Qlik Sense) are kept in memory in the "C:\ProgramData\NPrinting\ondemand\responses" folder for  some days and then automatically removed:

  •  completed requests remain for 30 days
  • aborted requests and failed requests are kept in memory for 6 days

It is possible to change these values by adding an entry in the "scheduler.config" file that is saved in "C:\Program Files\NPrintingServer\NPrinting\Scheduler":

  1.  To change the days to keep for completed requests, add this tag and specify the number of days:         
    <add key="completed-days-to-keep" value="30" />​
  2. To change the days to keep for aborted requests, add this tag and specify the number of days:
     <add key="aborted-days-to-keep" value="6" />​

 

!Note: NPrinting Installations, system folders and files are limited to the "c drive"  where the installation is performed by default. This point remains documented in each Qlik NPrinting Product Release notes.

For details visit: Qlik NPrinting Known issues and limitations. File and folder redirection to different local or network locations is not currently available.

@Sonja_Bauernfeind is it possible to change the storage location from C:\ProgramData\NPrinting\ondemand\responses?  We don't want to store the reports on the application drive.
