How to configure a generic URL for a Multinode Qlik Sense Site

Hi There,

I would like to configure a generic hostname for a multinode qlik sense site that consists of 1 central node and 3 RIM nodes. Is there a way to have 1 common url, let say "https://qlik-internal-reports.com" point to a proxy which internally redirects the traffic to the under lying nodes, based on load balancing.

Currently, each node (Hub or QMC) can only be accessed using specific hostname urls. For example:

Central Node - https://qlikserver01.com

RIM Node1 - https://qlikserver02.com

RIM Node2 - https://qlikserver03.com

RIM Node3 - https://qlikserver04.com

What I want is to be able to access the qlik infrastructure using a common hostname, so that even if one of the nodes is down, the end user will not be impacted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

You can go with F5 load balancer having all these nodes in it.

If I use an F5 front end load balancer, are there any configurations to be made on the Qlik Sense side to get it working ?

I have had the same issue. There is a documentation provided by the Qlik Sense. https://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-14734

Hello!

Did you manage to do it?

I mean not using F5, but with virtual proxys through qlik sense.

Can you share your experience?

Thanks!
