Exposing a pdf document to extranet qlikview users

As the name extranet suggests, we have external users accessing QV via webservers in DMZ. We need to expose a PDF document to these users as a link on one of the dashboard.

IF anyone has implemented this, kindly suggest. Based on my knowledge, we need to have these documents on a mounted drive within IIS. will appreciate any specific steps.

Re: Exposing a pdf document to extranet qlikview users

Hi,

Yes, this can be done. You will have to create a virtual folder in IIS or QVWS and then reference the folder in the URL. Like http://testserver/documents/test.pdf

Not sure what release of Qlik you are running, but there is a bug that will cause issue with the early releases of 11.20 SR12 that will cause issues with the URl

Re: Exposing a pdf document to extranet qlikview users

You can also do it with the help of having all emailid listed in excel and simply have the list loaded as Island in your application. Look at the below example -

You can to distribute Sales pdf to 10 users then follow the below steps;

1. list all the users in one excel and name the column Sales Users list

2. Load the excel in your application

3. Go to QMC and select the respective application

4. Create a task and select sales pdf and look through the Sales user list fields which you have loaded through excel

With the help of above steps you will be able to send the emails to external users without doing too many things.

Hope this help.
