How to use Qlik NPrinting APIs inside a Qlik View load script
I've been looking around for a while to trigger an NPrinting task from an external event using NPrinting APIs in order to put together some task chaining because Qlikview and NPrinting apps are part of a bigger BI process that starts from the ETL.
So I tried a lot with a python script since I had some background with the environment, but I had no luck for a few days to set up an NTML authentication on my NPrinting server before I realized that I can do that simply from a Qlikview application that I can trigger form the QMC right after the successful load of the related application without having to manage heterogeneous environments.
So based on an article by Gianluca Perin I have managed to put together the Qlikview script, I would if be happy to share the qvw with you, if, like me, you've had the same issue!
