Proxy settings tips for the Qlik GeoAnalytics Connector

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

Note, log on to windows as the service user, that 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 the settings may work. The settings are to be inserted in the settings file at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Qlik\Custom Data\QvIdevioConnector\IdevioGeoAnalyticsConnector.exe.config 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:

<system.net>

   <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true" />

</system.net>

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

<system.net>

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

    <bypasslist> 

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

    </bypasslist> 

</defaultProxy>

</system.net>

Ex 3: To specify the proxy explicitly:

  <system.net>

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

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

    </defaultProxy>

  </system.net>
