Passing variable's value from QMC to QlikSense script

Hello,

I am looking for a functionality that is supported in QlikView, but seems to be missing in Sense:

I need to pass a variable's value from QMC (via Task) to my script.

I am running similar scripts with different conditions and I do not want to handle multiple files updates/publishing...

Anybody was able to resolve this case?

Looking forward to your suggestions.

Regards,

Vlad

Hey Vlad,

How are you? I am wondering if you found solution for this, because I also need it.

Thanks,

Max

Hi Max,

I am good, how things are going on your side?

For the topic above: there is no simple solution (!@#$!@) in QS for this task.... For some strange reason, Qlik developers have decided to ignore this functionality, at least for now...

There is a possibility to develop this feature by yourself (Qlik Sense Repository Service API ‒ Qlik Sense) , but I do have some other things to do, so I've used a workaround (loading variables from external TXT files) that works in my case....

Thanks Vlad!

I am good! Clearing my way through Qlik Sense jungles.   Looks like I'll also need to workaround this issue. No biggie.

Max.

Yes, QS is fun... But works better and really more stable than a year ago....

It should be a good product in couple years...
