How to clean Document Category List on QMC

Hi,

in the QMC, sometimes we can have old categories we would like to delete.

Is there a way to do that ?

Re: How to clean Document Category List on QMC

HI Johann,

There is not easy way without editing an XLM file. If you decide to do this please make sure you have a backup of it.

You will need to go to C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\ManagementService\QVPR (default installation). There you will find the Category.xml and at the bottom is the Category names.

The line would look like this.

<Category Name="testing" ID="5ccdfd87-fbd2-4efe-8a2f-9905068cddea" ModifiedByUser="QV11\Administrator" ModifiedTime="2013-10-15T11:39:12.5462693-04:00" />

Re: How to clean Document Category List on QMC

Stop the QlikView services before editing the file. Then start the services again after saving your edit.

Please restart the QMC and QDS Services. That should fix the issue.

Re: How to clean Document Category List on QMC

I have QlikView version 12 installed on a Windows 2016 Cloud machine.

There is no such path as .../QlikTech/ProgramData

This is what I could find in the installation directory : 

C:/Program Files/QlikView/Management Service

In this I can only see the QVPR dll files and no xml files where i can remove/cleanup labels

There is one QVPRXML.dll which of course is encrypted
