I have used EDX to trigger a QMC task from an external event. Completion of a QMC task can be set to trigger another QMC task. Also the Qlikview application can send Alert email for a predefined condition. But what I need is the ability to trigger an external event or launch a web application on successful completion of a QMC task. Is there a way to achieve this? I did not find any post on this in the forum. Appreciate your help and advise. Thanks.
Re: Qlikview QMC task triggering an external event
Yes, there is. But QlikView services will not detect any other situation than simply receiving a signal like an EDX trigger. If you want to make it more complex, you'll have to build an external solution that detects that the proper conditions are being met and sends an EDX trigger to the QlikView Management Service.
Most of these situations can be detected using native tools (for example SQL Server Agent in a MS SQL Server DB) or OS features and can send a signal towards the QMS using QMSEDX.exe. PowerShell or CMD scripting will often provide the glue logic.
If you have one or more specific cases that you want discussed by the community, please open a new discussion.
