Bookmark definitions


Where can I find bookmark definitions? Whether it be document bookmarks, or other types, where are the definitions stored?

I exported a bookmark to an xml file, and then loaded it back into a QlikView file to try to view the definition, but with a brief analysis I couldn't easily see a definition.

Is there an existing tool to identify bookmark definitions? Or has someone developed a method?

Thanks in advance.

It depends on types of bookmarks.

from help:

  1. 15.1 Bookmark Types

The current state of selections can be saved as bookmarks for later use. Bookmarks capture selections in all

states defined in a QlikView document. When recalling a bookmark created in version 11 (or later) the selections

in all states will be applied. There are different types of bookmarks:

Document bookmarks are stored inside the qvw document. They will always be available to whoever

opens the document locally or from a QlikView Server.

User bookmarks are stored separately on the user’s computer. They will only be available to the

user who created them on the computer where they were created. If the document

is moved or renamed all personal bookmarks related to it will be lost.

Personal Server bookmarks

are only available when working with a document on QlikView Server and

only to authenticated users. They are stored in a repository on the server and

are accessible to the user from any computer where authenticated.

Shared Server bookmarks

are only available when working with a document on QlikView Server and

only to authenticated users. Any user who has created a personal server bookmark

may flag this as shared to other users. They will then become available

to other users. Just like personal server bookmarks shared server bookmarks are

stored in a repository on the server.


I hope this will help you,

Hi

michael.solomon:

Did you find any solution or more information regarding your problem?

I'm also having a bit trouble reading the data model that the XML generates in QlikView..

Thanks

Terje,

I didn't find any other solution than to investigate the XML file more.  I ended up referring to 3 fields that gave me a good feel for the bookmark definitions.

  • Bookmark.Name
  • BookmarkFieldItem.Def/Name
  • FieldValue.Text

I can't say for certain these would satisfy all scenarios of bookmarks, but it worked with my small sample.
