Hi everyone, we installed QlikView Version 9 (latest release) and played around with the reload capabilities. This is what we did which we thought would work but did not:
- Created a simple QVW that has inline data - Set the reload schedule within the document (Settings->Document Properties->Scheduler) to be every 5 minutes - Copied the document to the QlikView server document root - Waited 5 minutes - no reload - Went to the QMC and saw this (see screenshot below)
Are we missing anything? The documentation says you just set the settings in the QVW document and the server should just pick it up. Looks like it doesn't...
We were under the impression that you just set the reload settings in the document, upload the file to the server and then it picks up the reload settings on it's own with no changes to be made in the QMC. Looks like that's not the case and why the QMC shows nothing!
The QlikView Reference Manual (for QlikView Desktop) states on page 19:
"When designing a QlikView document it is now possible to define a default reload schedule in the Document Properties dialog (see page 37 in Book II). This can in many cases reduce the administrative overhead of setting up a reload task when adding new documents to the server. From the QMC or QEMC you may accept a proposed schedule with a single click."
So it sounds like all you do is set the schedule in the Document Properties and then the server should pick it up and allow the admin to enable everything with a single click.
I do agree this sounds like a bug. I'm going to file a bug with their support.
