How do I reload NPrinting metadata automatically

Hi,

I am using NPrinting 17.3 and I want to print my reports with refreshed content whenever QV Server reloads applications with new content.

However, I still need to go to click Reload metadata in order to get the latest content printed. This doesn't seem very intuitive to me as I always thought it should be automatically taken care of...

Is this expected, or am I missing something out here? I read somewhere that there was a workaround for NPrinting 17 and earlier to solve this (mis)behavior: on Qlik desktop client Settings > Document Properties > Server>, I've also checked Enable Push from Server, Enable Dynamic Data Update and chosen Refresh Mode to Server performs refresh automatically without client action.

I'm still not getting expected results i.e. I still need to refresh the connections manually by clicking "Reload metadata"...

Is there any working solution that is verified to work?

Thanks.

Hi Glenn,

If you are using a Server (qvp://) type Connection to the QVW in NPrinting you should get fresh data without the need to reload metadata.

Basically, once a report is made available to a user community, executing "Reload metadata" is primarily for getting any structure changes to the qvw, right?  ...things like new columns, charts and other objects that one may want to add to their report.
