Re: how change app folder in sense server?

some correct and work. I foget add empty line below. Thank you tech support Qlik that pointed out my mistake

And there steps to change Work Folder sense server:

Go to C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Engine and Open Settings.ini

Add these lines in the file:

[Settings 7]

DocumentDirectory=C:\qv

Remember to have an emty line below otherwise the settings won't apply

Restart the Qlik Sense Engine Service

If you want to move you already created apps you need to move them manually

You can change the default App storage in the "Engine" settings for Qlik Sense.

- Open the Management Console

- In the menu to the left select Engines

- Configure (double click) your Central Engine

- Change the "Working Folder" for your Apps

Re: how change app folder in sense server?

You are mistaken. I checked. This we specify the location of files that the server will look at planning problems rebooting.

I changed the setting to 0.95 and in this release. Changes only the position of qvd files, and binary files the application remain in the same place C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Apps.

from log file serv_system_engine.log

Mount: Found Mount  at location C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Apps  browsableINTERNALsa_scheduler

I look in DB with PGadmin. Work folder is d:\qsense\app

If, indeed, change the "working directory" should change the location of the binary application files, then I really will contact technical support Qlik that to report a bug.

DocumentDirectory = d:\qsense

No results.
