Qlik NPrinting generic LDAP user importer

Qlik NPrinting is the reporting platform for QlikView and Qlik Sense. A report generation process can virtually generate a customized report for each user, starting from the same report template, based on the user profile. Also, the report distribution channel can be differentiating for users or groups, subsequently the users list is one of the critical parts to manage.

NPrinting offers an out of the box method to import users from a third party directory  here which requires accommodating the list of users to import into a preformatted Excel file and create a task to run the import process on a schedule base or just in one shot. It’s up to you to take care of the exporting process from the user’s source directory.Starting from the June 2017, NPrinting has released also a set of APIs which allows building your own importer.


Waiting for a more integrated user management solution, covered soon by the product, a couple of extensions has come out. One is the “Import Nprinting Users from Active Directory” from Erik Gustafsson (a command line tool for import users coming from AD). The other is this one, which targets a more generic LDAP and offers a web interface to connect and map the metadata.

You can find the software on Branch (here ) or GitHub (here ) with a 3 minutes’ video tutorial showing the process from the download to the user's import.

Requirements:

Requires Node.js

Installation:
