External Program Task

I am needing to create an External Program Task that will send automatic email when several schedule task chains have completed.  The e-mail is sent with the name of the task schedule the date and the body of task completed. I have already completed building the task called Send Email Message.  

I would appreciate any insight that you can provide to me.

Hi @wallace0834 

If what you need is to be able to create the task in Qlik Sense QMC and then trigger it, I think you need to upgrade to May2021. It introduce an option to call a .bat o powershell file when configuring the task

I started using it in feb2022 and works fine, don’t know how it works en may2021

Best,

Thanks.  We are using Qlik Sense May 2021 in a multi-node environment.

Hi @wallace0834 

Here you have an example

This one uses node to execute a .js file that makes copies of a template app. (Similar to qlikview publisher)

When I execute the script in PowerShell, it works great.  When I created External Program and link it to a schedule task, it sends multiple e-mail instead of just one.  Could you please provide any suggestion on how to fix it?
