Schedule a task to run 2 times a week

Hi.

A simple question: Is it possible to schedule a server-task in QV 11 to reload a qvw-file 2 times a week, say: Monday and Friday.

... just set the control app to run daily at the time you require, and test for day of week value instead of hour.

Yes, it is possible.

Please check the server reference manual and the Configure Trigger settings.

Hi swuehl.

Thanks – I guess I must be blind, and I know it sounds like an easy thing, but in a QV environment Q11, with a QV-server, but no Publisher, going to: Document -> User Document -> Reload – it looks to me, choosing weekly reload, that one can pick one day a week, but not two.

I tried to set the default reload in the document, where it’s possible to pick two days in a week on the weekly reload, but it does nothing to the resulting reload on the server reload-sheet.

Another easy question: How do I set a task to reload once every hour, but only between 7 to 11 pm?

You can probably use the code below to create a batch file, then use Scheduler to run the task whenever you want, as often as you want.

CALL "C:\PROGRAM FILES\QLIKVIEW\QV.EXE" /R "C:\File_Path\File_Name.QVW"

I have a task that runs daily for this app, then it needs to run 5 minutes before a weekly sales meeting.  I set the batch file up then use Scheduler to run it 5 minutes before the meeting.

Hi nhallquist.

Thanks.Since QV10 batch-reloads aren’t that stable, and Qliktech recommends a qv-server reload solution. So I’m looking for a clean qv-server solution.

I am not having access to the reference manual nor the server right now, so I would need to recheck regarding non-publisher setting tomorrow, but I would assume that you could use a daily reload setting and check only the two days you want to schedule. But I'll try to check tomorrow.

Hi.

Well, the QV-support has confirmed that in fact you have to buy the Publisher, if you want to do “complex things” like reloading an application 2 times a week.

Combined with the bug that QV10 and QV11 can’t handle bat-reload-jobs, upgrading from 9 to QV 11 is not a simple or free thing to do.
