NPrinting doesn't refresh the metadata

I need to refresh automatically the metadata. My client needs to do this every morning, but they can't do this manually.

How can I set this automatically?

I have NPrinting 17.2.1 and Qlik Sense 3.1

This is a bug.

NPrinting 17.3 (planned for February next year) should resolve the issue completely.

Re: NPrinting doesn't refresh the metadata

Currently it is not possible to automate this step.

It is a roadmap item as part of the expansion of the reporting APIs but there is no timeline on this functionality at the moment.

Isn't there any alternative solution for this? I really need to do this, we need to finish a project and this issue will affect us on the delivery terms.

Re: NPrinting doesn't refresh the metadata

Update: When I restart NPrinting services, the metadata is realoaded. I think I can set a scheduled restart or something to do this, but I don't know if this is the best alternative solution.

Re: NPrinting doesn't refresh the metadata

Any opinion about this? I'm still stuck on this problem. My client will be very disappointed if this isn't resolved.

Re: NPrinting doesn't refresh the metadata

Hi Carlos,
Yes you are right restarting nprinting services reloads metadata. and we can have a windows job to stop and start the nprinting services.

But restating the services every time or scheduling the restart  is definitely  not a good option and we may mess up the connections.

Thanks - sravan

Re: NPrinting doesn't refresh the metadata

You are right, today I was testing this "solution" but it's very unstable.
