Email notification on load failure (Qlik Sense 3.2)

Hi All,


Is it possible to send SMTP notifications to an email address for task failures in Qlik Sense? We are currently monitoring our jobs manually by logging into the QMC and looking for failures multiple times a day. I would to have something similar to my automated SQL Server jobs where they send out alerts on the failure event. If there is not a built in feature, does anyone know where the logs are located for the failure events. I appreciate the help! Thanks

Re: Email notification on load failure (Qlik Sense 3.2)

The log4net documentation for implementing task failure alerts seemed like a possible lead but the qlik documentation didn’t seem sufficiently detailed enough for me to implement. While searching the previous community posts I came across the thread below:

I appreciate your suggestion!

Re: Email notification on load failure (Qlik Sense 3.2)

We've implemented as shown in the example and receive emails every time a error is thrown when a task fails.

You would of course have to add it to the scheduler and not the audit proxy.

<logger name="System.Scheduler.Scheduler.Slave.Tasks.ReloadTask">

            <appender-ref ref="MyMailAppender" />

   </logger>

As will all things Qlik/Java case is important.

Set up per instructions for custom logging:
