How to access mounted folder?

My default access point ROOT directory is C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Documents

I have created a new mounted folder C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\xyz with the name xyz and made it unbrowsable.

It is not showing at Access Point - this is what I wanted. The question is how do I access it? What url to use?

Thanks

I am assuming that you're trying to access a particular QVW, in which case, here's how to do it.

Assumption: This is using a default setup of QlikView Server and using QlikView Web Server, so if you are using IIS or a non-standard setup then you will need to play around with it.

Potential issue: If you need to play around with this, then you should use an account with a Named CAL if possible so that you will not assign any document/session CALs to the QVW that you're going to play around with. If those aren't available then be sure to go in the QlikView Management Console --> Documents --> User Documents --> Locate the QVW --> Document CALs --> Set the number of CALs to zero and click Apply.

So when you open up a file located in the root folder, like the Golf Quest.qvw you'd access it using:

http://localhost/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc.htm?document=Golf%20Quest.qvw

When you have another arbitrary folder mounted, then you'd connect using this URL, whether the folder is browsable or not:

http://localhost/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc.htm?document=ARBITRARYFOLDER\QVWFILENAME.qvw

Of course replace localhost with however you access your Access Point.

If you're using an alternative setup then place a QVW in a mounted but browsable folder, open it in the Access Point, move the QVW to a mounted but non-browsable folder and change the folder name to match the new folder.

I already made all necessary changes in console. I do not want the file to be showing up at Access Point. That is why I made it unbrowsable. My question is what is the URL to access the file from a client browser?

It should be

http://10.1.2.81/qlikview.com ( with Ip Address)

or http:// servername/qlikview.com  ( with servername)

One more question.

I am an admin on the server - when I access the document - no problem. When another user with a Named CAL accessing the document in the mounted folder - permission denied. Do I need to add windows permissions to this folder for that users?

Why the do not have permission to see the document?

I allocated 0 document CALs for that file
