Nprinting Services Account Logon

Hi,

I have an Nprinting environment already set up with scheduled task already set up as well. This works fine however I want to change the service account logon information to another service account on services.msc. So I want to change the logon for the following services

Qlik Nprinting Engine

Qlik Nprinting Scheduler

Qlik Nprinting Web Engine

My question is when I change the logon for the services above, will the affect any scheduled tasks or reports already setup in Nprinting?

Also if I want to point an output to a folder on a different server, where would I do it?

Thank you

Re: Nprinting Services Account Logon

yes it might.

I will not tell you all the consequences but the ones i can tell you straight away are:

  • NRinting account running engine needs to have QlikView License so you will also have to lease a license to this account
  • It needs to belong to certain groups depending on your setup (QlikVIew or Qlik Sense) (details are in help document)
  • If you use section access or any other funny user related tricks in your application (like sometimes we hide sheets in QlikVIew documents so only NPrinting account can read them - this would have to be adjusted)

It does not harm to try, but before get familiar with help document https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/June2018/Content/Introduction/Introduction.htm and read section about users, about deployment and installation of each service as it will highlight all requirements you have to meet with this new service account

hope this helps

cheers
