Triggering EDX Enabled Tasks

To start tasks that have an external event as trigger, the QlikView Management Service API (QMS API) must

be used. The user making the request calls must be a member of the QlikView Administrators local group or

the QlikView EDX local group. The QlikView Administrators group is set up during the installation of

QlikView Server, but the QlikView EDX group must be created manually in Computer Management.

Members of the QlikView EDX group only have the right to trigger EDX-enabled tasks.

The method to use has the following signature:


Parameter Purpose

guid ID of the QlikView Distribution Service (QDS) where the task is defined.

taskNameOrId Task name or ID of the task in string format.

password Password (if required by the task).

variableName Variable name (if required by the task).

variableValues List of values for the variable.

The returned result contains information on whether the task was successfully started or not.

How to use the above API in VB Script?
