How to remove "/QLIKVIEW" from URL

Hello,

We are upgrading from Qlikview 8.5 to Qlikview 10.  In our current Qlikview 8.5 setup, which we use IIS, we have our URL as qview.company_name.com.  With Qlikvview 10 we are using the Qlikview Web Server and our link is qview.company_name.com/qlikview.  I tried going into the Qlikview web server and setting the name of the E:\Program Files\QlikView\Web path to be a blank for the name instead of the default which is QLIKVIEW.  When I go to qview.company_name.com the site comes up but it won't bring back a list of available documents to view.  Does anyone know if there is a way to setup the Qlikview Web Server so we don't need to have the /qlikview root folder name at the end our our URL?

Thank you,

Brian

How to remove "/QLIKVIEW" from URL

Hi, Brian

At this root folder (which your left as a blank), you need to include a simple html page to redirect it to the  qview.company_name.com/qlikview page.

You can get a script for this here:

(please, also check Rob's comment about content=0)

Hope this helps,

How to remove "/QLIKVIEW" from URL

I figured it out.  Instead of changing the pre-existing QLIKVIEW alias to blank which pointed to the E:\Program Files\QlikView\Web path I just created another entry pointing to the E:\Program Files\QlikView\Web path with a blank alias.  I think the index.html had a references to teh QLIKVIEW alias name so when I removed that I think that caused it to break originally.  All seems to be working well now though when I go to http://qview.company_name.com.

Thanks again,

Brian
