Connection with Qlik Sense -Are Domain user and NTLM authentication still required for base environments?

Good afternoon everyone,

reviewing the requirements to connect NPrinting with Qlik Sense (link), I still see these requirements:

  • In the QMC, you must give RootAdmin authorization to the Windows user that runs the Qlik NPrinting Engine Windows service. That Windows user must also be a domain user. See: User accounts.

From what I understand, connection and authentication with Qlik Sense is performed through certificates (exported from Qlik Sense), so... Is this point still relevant in base environments? (so just basic report generation, no On-Demand)

 

And, secondly, I'm questioning (for base environments) if NTLM authentication is relevant too:

  • Microsoft Windows NTML authentication on the Qlik Sense proxy. SAML and JWT are not supported. If your virtual proxy uses SAML or JWT authentication, you need to add a new virtual proxy with NTLM enabled for Qlik NPrinting connections.

 

Many thanks,
Riccardo

Hi,

The requirements listed in https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/February2021/Content/NPrinting/DeployingQVNprinting/NPrinting-... are required if you want to connect Qlik NPrinting with Qlik Sense. If you do not meet those requirements the connection will not work, included the installation of the certificates. 

In case you want to use also On-Demand there are some more requirements listed in https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/February2021/Content/NPrinting/On-Demand/Create-Report-On-Dema...

Best Regards,

Ruggero
