On-Demand reporting extension connection issue with NPrinting

Hi,


I'm trying to connect Qlik Sense with NPrinting through the on-demand reporting extension without success.

I follow the steps of the following video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZ0AdBd91tA

and I get the following error when trying to connect with the NPrinting server.

Hi,

  1. Exit from the Qlik Sense editing mode and enter again
  2. Be sure that you have at least one report with On-Demand option enabled
  3. Be sure that the user you are using to login has the rights to use On-Demand reports in Qlik NPrinting

     

    Best Regards,
    Ruggero

Hi Ruggero,

How can I know what is the user I am using to login? Do you  mean the Qlik user or the computer user? With computer user it still not working, and with the Qlik user, I can't create this user in NPrinting as it doesn't have any domain.

It won't work.  On-Demand MUST use NPrinting windows authentication  and each user must be pre-registered in nprinting as user with a completed 'domain account'.  The on-demand extension uses the login/ntlm API endpoint to authenticate to NPrinting in order to select a report to run ... and that endpoint is windows auth only.

As far as I know I am already using windows authentication with the domain users...

Hi,

The domain user must be present in Qlik NPrinting and have the rights to run On-Demand reports. So create a Qlik NPrinting user, connect to the related domain user and give him a role with the On-Demand rights.
