EDX as mentioned in the other two posts is a mean by which you can trigger a QMC task external to QlikView, but I think what you want to do is programatically create tasks rather than using the QMC gui.

The QlikView Management Service has an API which exposes pretty much all of it's functionality. An introduction and documentation are available here:


Be aware that it it's probably a non trivial task to replicate the ENTIRE task functionality of the management service but you may be able to create sufficient functionality to meet your needs.

I have used reference link as below:

QlikView Management API - #1 Setting up a Visual Studio project

But unable to understand what parameters to provide. what needs to be changed as per settings in qms?

<endpoint address="http://localhost:4799/QMS/Service" binding="basicHttpBinding"

bindingConfiguration="BasicHttpBinding_IQMS" contract="QMSAPIService.IQMS"

name="BasicHttpBinding_IQMS" />
