NPrinting Tasks Ref Locations

Hi guys,

I'm trying to make sense of the error logs in NPrinting 17.4/June, but all the tasks have long coded refs rather than the name of the tasks themselves so it's difficult to know what's failing/publishing.

Is there somewhere in NPrinting where it stores which ref refers to which task?

Thanks in advance

Chris A.

Hi,

Long codec references in the logs are the Qlik NPrinting entities ID. At the moment you can decode them only manually.

First of all you must know what type of entity is referred. For example, if the message is Generating cache for connection 151027b3-f618-41c3-8eb7-c9aa9eaea688 we are speaking about a connection.

  1. Copy the code 151027b3-f618-41c3-8eb7-c9aa9eaea688
  2. Open one connection. The URL in the web browser will be something similar to https://localhost:4993/#/connections/3eb1f50a-f1e3-47cd-899f-0b38072c6f6f
  3. Replace the last part of the URL by pasting the copied id and press enter
  4. The correct connection appears

For tasks or task executions the process is similar.

For reports the ID is related to a report inside a specific task. Do first you have to decode the task and then the report.

Best Regards,

Ruggero

Hi Ruggero,

It's the task I'd be looking for. How would I see the reference for a specific task?

For a task, for example, suppose to have this message in your logs:

Qlik.NPrinting.Scheduler 17.4.1.0 Qlik.NPrinting.Scheduler.Task.PublishReportsEngineTask 20170809T125434.640+02:00 WARN RD-RPC-INEXPRPT 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 No report has been added to task df524ff5-5230-4db0-9859-9a373aa0e6e7. Execution will succeed but no report will be generated

The task ID is df524ff5-5230-4db0-9859-9a373aa0e6e7. Copy it.


Open the Qlik NPrinting Publish tasks page in your browser. The URL is something like  https://Address:4993/#/tasks/publish.


Add a / and paste the task ID. So the URL will be https://Address:4993/#/tasks/publish/df524ff5-5230-4db0-9859-9a373aa0e6e7.


Press enter and the task you are looking for appears.

Best Regards,

Ruggero
