For example – you have a main project’s folder QVProject and want to place addon files to the 7z folder inside of that – see the pic.This file should be extracted to your project’s folder.


To include addon into your QlikView project – add to the Reload Script next statements:

SET vLogRetentionPeriod = 7;

SET vLogsFolder = '..\Logs';

SET v7zFolder = '..\7z';


And set up next settings in variables:

  • v7zFolder – path to the Addon files folder. Without trailing slash;
  • vLogsFolder – path to the log-files archive folder, where they will be stored and archived. Without trailing slash;
  • vLogRetentionPeriod – number of days for logs retention period. All log-files older than this retention period will be zipped.
