Discussion Board for collaboration on Qlik NPrinting.
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
Go to Solution.
This is a bug.
NPrinting 17.3 (planned for February next year) should resolve the issue completely.
Anyone? I really need any suggestion for this
Thanks in advance
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.
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.
Any opinion about this? I'm still stuck on this problem. My client will be very disappointed if this isn't resolved.
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.

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