This page will collect all relevant release information about Power Tools for QlikView, and will be continuously updated with each new release and with any patches that are issued. This way we hope for a more consolidated view of the Power Tools suite.
Please note that this matrix only describes the compatibility with QlikView 12. It does not indicate whether or not Power Tools are officially supported, because they are not.
Provides insight into the QlikView Server .shared files belonging to .qvw documents. The .shared file stores server data such as server/shared bookmarks, server objects (charts and objects created by a client via the server), annotations and other data that is specific to the document. The tool visualizes the content of the binary .shared file and provides options to "Repair" legacy files, as well as defrag large .shared files.
A custom data connector for QlikView that much like the SharedFileViewer provides insight into .shared files, but instead allows to load data straight from .shared files into QlikView documents for analysis. The tool supports extraction of data like ownership, size and type of objects, expressions, annotations, bookmark selections (fields and values) and much more.
QlikView Server Agent
A small service utility that allows easy management of QlikView services. Also allows for quick change of credentials across multiple services at the same time.
QlikView Server Super Agent
A monitoring tool for QlikView Server, that monitors Qv services regardless of version (9+) and reports any service outage with email notifications and/or log files.
QMS API Client
A highly useful tool that gives its user the possibility to interact with the complete setup of QMS API functions in QlikView Server without typing a line of code. Visualizes data structures and enables the user to parameterize and test every function call based on their own data or data from the QMS API.
Qv User Manager
A command-line tool to list, add, remove and edit CAL and user information in a QlikView Server remotely.
Scans the current subnet for other QlikView Servers and visualizes information like license, root folder, version and such. Also enables certain administrative functions.
Reload Schedule Migration Tool
A small step-by-step instruction tool that helps migrate reload schedules from non-Publisher databases in 9 to Publisher databases in 10 or 11, by manipulating the QVPR database (XML repository required) directly.
Server Object Handler
Enables listing, ownership changing and deletion of server objects in documents hosted on a QlikView Server remotely. Also allows ownership changing to be performed on a selected number of server objects matching a given name pattern.
Server Object Handler Batch
The command-line little brother of the Server Object Handler, that does all the same, but from any command prompt or batch script.
Visualizes and enables searching in and editing of the QlikView Publisher Repository database (QVPR), when in XML format.
Shared File Repair
Uses the upgraded .shared file verify and repair functionality that was re-introduced in QlikView Server (QVS.exe) SR5, by providing a GUI to execute verify/repair operations on one or more .shared files and report the result. Note that even though the verify/repair functionality first came into QVS in 11.20 SR4, this version requires the upgraded functionality in 11.20 SR5.
