Shared Objects and ServerObjectHandlerBatch


so far Users were located in Domain A and created shared objects (Sheets, Charts etc.) within QVWs on a QlikViewserver. Now, the users need to be migrated to a new Domain B (and some users already have been migrated) which results in a mismatch between the shared objects OwnerID (Domain A\user) created in the past and their current user names (Domain B\user).

We used the ServerObjectHandlerBatch to adjust the usernames but it seems it didn't work properly. Users can see now their Sheets but none of the charts, tables they've created in those sheets.

The command used was :

ServerObjectHandlerBatch.exe <qvserver> <Path To the QVW> OWNALL:Domain A\,Domain B\

Does someone has an idea where to look at to get the problem (hopefully) resolved ?

Thanks a lot

Hi Thomas,

I have not got a solution, but this might be useful to someone else like me who spent a lot of time trying to understand what was going on with some server objects after you change their ownership.

The explanation is on page two (sbn 25-Jun-2014 10:06 (in response to Martin Olesen)) of the comments on the PowerTools 1.2 document at the following link:


You've probably discovered that this is how the server object handler works (in fact this is how QlikView Server functions, as the same happens if you manually change the ownership of an object from the QMC).
