Action - External - Open Qlikview document


I have a requirement wherein I have to open an application from other application using open qlikview document action,

The application which is to be opened should activate a particular sheet,

I got to know that using triggers in the application we will able to open a particular sheet,

But the problem is we have an application which is having section access and we are deploying through loop and reduce method so we will not be able to give triggers in  that application.

One more problem is each time when I am coming to the main application and click on the action button from any other sheet, It has to open other sheet in the the application which is landing, Please suggest is there any way for doing this.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Action - External - Open Qlikview document


Please try like this:

To land for a particular sheet from another qlikview app, you can re-write the URL instead of triggers also or pass the sheet id as the parameter in the URL try like this:


this will land you that particular sheet.

To pass the triggers for section access document you need to have ADMIN access
