Could anyone please confrm that Workbench can be used remotely from Qlikview server(on another machine)?
And if so, I'm trying to use DataSource object to connect to Qlikview server: I'm specifying QvsHost property of DataSource object, but having no luck with connection.
The question is stupid, but could anyone please provide me with QvsHost naming pattern. Like for example, if you've got Qlikview server installed on SERVERNAME, then QvsHOST property should be equal to ...
If it's any help, I can open the Access Point from my local machine. Do I need to open any ports for Workbench connection?
First thing to be sure of is that your license allows for workbench it would have a line in the LEF for the server like:
If you do not have this in the server LEF you cannot use workbench.
By Remote I am assuming you have Visual Studio on your work station and QV server is on another machine. This perfectly fine. However you must have the proxy configured so that communication can occur. When you did the install and you did the test did you get any errors?
In the web config file you must have the following when the QVS is on another box.
Do I need to install WorkBench on the server? The problem is that I don't have Visual studio installed there and to be honest don't have a spare licence. Is it suppossed to work with Express version by any chance? Cause I seem to have troubles installing it.
No workbench does not have to be installed on the server. You will "Publish" you sites to the webserver, like any website. If you need help with this recommend getting in touch with your Account Manager and have expert services work with you, etc.
