QlikSense IIS Redirect after authentication


let's see if I can get my problem right as this is not my main job

My problem is that I have got a QlikView-Server that is accessed via IIS. Now, I have also got a QlikSense-Server (installed on another machine) that should also be accessed via IIS as it should be the same domain.

What did I do:

Qlik Sense:

In the QMC I changed the virtual proxy setting of Windows authentication pattern to "Form" in order to get a form to authenticate.

I also added the internal and external IP / domain of the "main" - server that has the IIS to the host white list of the virtual proxy.


I added 4 rewrites in the IIS to rewrite the external domain into the local IP of QlikSense server. Port 4248 is used as it is just http we use here.

hub/(.*) --> <ip>/{R:0}

sense/(.*)--> <ip>/{R:0}

windows_authentication/(.*)--> <ip>:4248/{R:0}

form/(.*)--> <ip>:4248/{R:0}

On the IIS we installed the RewriteModule (was already installed), ARR (added) and the WebSocketModule (added).

What happens:

It is now possible to access the QlikSense-Server with the external adress http://<url>/hub/.

I then receive the authentication form and am able to authenticate.

I get the ticket back (this is what I think happens).

But then, he stucks with https://<external url>/hub/?qlikTicket=<ticketnumber>.pK4n and does not redirect to /hub/my/work/.

I read a lot of articles and discussions today but I can't find a solution here.

I think the problem was discussed here: Reverse Proxy and Authentication port redirect (by

Did anyone had this problem before or has an idea of why this happens?

Thanks for any help!
