User Reload Options in Access Point

Hello community,

we have applications where usually one person is responsible for the overall data. How can I, as an admin, give such a user the option to reload the application, ideally from within another application where I can enable section access?

We don't have publisher.

I've read quite a few posts and played around with EDX and a batch file (http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-2650) but as I understand it, this only works when I set the reload schedule of the application to "On an External Event" in QMC. Which then looks like that a normal scheduled reload of, say once a day, won't work anymore. But please correct me if I'm wrong.

So in the end I'm looking for a secure way to let certain users reload "their" applications without breaking the normal scheduled reload and without "touching" (opening) the application in the desktop edition. If the IE-Plugin should make this process easier then I will install the plugin for the according users.

Hope you can guide me to some workflow that does this.

Thank you,

Thorsten

Re: User Reload Options in Access Point

Ideally for your scenario the best solution would be to buy Publisher, so that you could create a secondary task as "On external event". In Publisher you could also allow these users as Document Administrators so that they could manage the apps in QMC. But Publisher is quite expensive...

One workaround is to set the reload schedules as "On external event" to enable EDX, and set the periodic reloads in the Windows Scheduler.

If you plan on using EDX via a button in a QV app, I think that this app shoud be used via IE Plugin. You'll have to use some macro code that will be easier to make it work in IE Plugin rather than AJAX. (but in AJAX it is also possible...)

Re: User Reload Options in Access Point

You could maybe give the user access to run qv.exe with command-line parameters on the server to reload the application. You'd need to lock it down quite well though and the same user would need access to the underlying data sources.

Otherwise, it is EDX with Publisher I believe.
