I want to develop a QVD analyzer which shows the input QVD (with path) and output QVD (with path) along with error info, if any, kindly suggest me from where should i start with.
Thanks for the reply Miguel...
I'll surely do it.
Anyother idea, like if i want to extract all the above info from the Log file, how would i do it...?
That is exactly what the QlikView Governance Dashboard is doing. You can even check its script, to see how the app is loading the the different logs to obtain that lineage information.
You don't only need the logs but also the -prj folders (the script) of every app to know exactly how the QVDs are consumed.
I am checking it
Here all the script is stored in hidden script, can you tell me from where would i get the password for the hidden script
At least in 2.0.2 onwards, the password is already in the script, in a comment.
Be aware that any change will render void the support for that app, since you have modified it.
Much of what you need is stored in the XML header. Depending on how the QVD was created, you will also get detailed lineage from there as well. You can use code like this to read the XML header:
TableName as TABLE_NAME,
%Key_QvdTableHeader_B94FCCAC68ED3E20 // Key for this table: QvdTableHeader
FROM [$(vPath)] (XmlSimple, Table is [QvdTableHeader]);
And here is the lineage:
%Key_QvdTableHeader_B94FCCAC68ED3E20 // Key to parent table: QvdTableHeader
FROM [$(vPath)] (XmlSimple, Table is [QvdTableHeader/Lineage/LineageInfo]);
