I have a very complex requirement to pull a large amount of data from various datasources into 1 app for my userbase. I have static historic data and daily refreshing current data which needs to be combined and filtered based on criteria needed by my end user.
I had hoped i could take advantage of binary loads as QVDs are very slow for me (my data is in Canada and my servers are in UK and I have a big latency issue). By having a static app with all my history, binary loading that into my current app (which i can refresh daily) which I can then filter and spit out much smaller qvd files is a process which works when everything is updated manually. As soon as i try and do it through automated refresh tasks in QMC, the binary loads don't work. I don't have section access involved so i believe my binary load doesnt work because the files are locked in my enterprise server environment as per https://support.qlik.com/articles/000011152
Question for the group - is there a way i can run my refreshes and then store a copy of my qvf in a different location to my app folder (effectively giving me a static copy of my app which is not affected by the maintenance jobs) so I can support my binary load approach? I've attached a rough image of my logic. Any advice welcome.
One thing you can do is create a physical copy(QVF) of your history app and store it under any other location than Qlik Apps. And then use the Legacy mode in Qlik Sense to do a binary load from that file.
For example, assuming your history.qvf is stored under C:\HistoryData\ then your binary load after enabling the legacy mode in Qlik Sense will look like below.
