"Reload Now" functionality invocation through the QlikView Server API

Hi,

I am planning to use qlikview for the business intelligence part of our application.
I have a question about the qlikview server api.
Using the Qlikview server API , is it possible to invoke the "Reload Now" functionality for a certain qlikview document?
Thanks in advance,
Agha Furrukh

You can issue an EDX trigger that will start a reload task. The information for this is in the QlikView Server manual.

"Reload Now" functionality invocation through the QlikView Server API

Hi,

Thanks for the response. I can now invoke a task using the EDX Trigger.

Here is how I do it: I have the reload task as an external event and invoke the event through an EDX trigger.

However now I have run into another problem:

The EDX trigger only works if I have an empty password when I set the reload task as an external event.

But, when I try to set some value for the password, it always returns the following message:

"Error Could not trigger task. Bad password. Task = ...."

Thanks in advance,
