Proxy settings tips for the Qlik GeoAnalytics Connector

The GeoAnalytics connector accesses the internet like all connectors through the service user that runs the Qlik Sense or QlikView server. This might complicate things for companies that runs a web proxy that requires user authentication.

Note, log on to windows as the service user, which will create a profile used by the web proxy.

To overcome this the connector can be supplied with proxy settings. The connector is a .Net program so the settings are inherited for the .Net framework. Depending on the proxy the following settings may work. The settings are to be inserted in the settings file.

  • QlikView: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Qlik\Custom Data\QvIdevioConnector\IdevioGeoAnalyticsConnector.exe.config
  • Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows:  C:\Program Files\Common Files\QlikTech\CustomData\QvIdevioConnector\IdevioGeoAnalyticsConnector.exe.config

The path may vary due to how the installation was done (default folders). The settings are to be inserted in the end, in the <configuration> tag.?

Ex 1: Tells the connector to use default credentials:


   <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true" />



Ex 2: Add server to bypasslist (string is regexp):


<defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true" enabled="true" >


         <add address="https:\/\/ga\.qlikcloud\.com" /> 





Ex 3: To specify the proxy explicitly:


    <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true" enabled="true">

      <proxy usesystemdefault="False" autoDetect="False" proxyaddress="http://proxy:8080" />

If the settings above are unable to help resolve the connection issues, it may be necessary to contact the local IT department to review infrastructure and proxy settings.
