How to pass parameters (user/password) through url

Hello,

Any idea why this link works and automatically passes the user/password and open the qvw:

qvp://<IP ADDRESS>/Test/Test.qvw?userid=admin&password=123

However this one doesn't. He still pops up the user/password text box:

http://<IP ADDRESS>/QVPlugin/opendoc.htm?document=Test/Test.qvw?userid=adm&password=adm

This is QV 11, IE8

Are you trying to pass section access password or Windows password?

Re: How to pass parameters (user/password) through url

Hi Nayan,

I was browsing the community to find a solution for a similar issue. I have a couple players which are not member of the AD domain. I would like to play some presentation, retrieving some embedded web content from Qlikview. However, the application keeps prompting for a username and password.

We are using QV11 with IE10.

We do get to the point where it bypasses the login prompt but the next message is "No Connection"

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance,

Erik

Re: How to pass parameters (user/password) through url

Wrong link. You should use smth like this:

http://fbc-qv/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc.htm?document=Demos%2FFB%20Visual%20Analyzer%202.6%20(SLXMASTER)%20-%20%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BF%D0%B8%D1%8F.qvw&host=QVS%40fbc-qv&USERID=admin&PASSWORD=slxmaster

construction:

1. http://fbc-qv/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc.htm - general link to AJAX module

2. document = ... afterpart with all parameters for general link. All comands in it must be separated with &.

Authentification is part of 2 and mustn't be separated with ?

     I have the same situation in  Windows password? ,do you resolve this problem?

Re: How to pass parameters (user/password) through url

Hi,

I don't think passing parameter is supported now earlier it was.

Bill Britt can confirm the same.

Hi,

Ashfaq is correct if you are using the AJAX client.

Connection Pseudo-URLs

When connecting to QlikView Server from Windows clients, either via the Open in Server dialog or via

link files, the identity to be used is specified via the pseudo-URL document address.

The syntax is:

qvp://[[username]@]servername [:(port | protocol)] /

[documentname.qvw][?paramname=paramvalue{&paramname=paramvalue}]

where

username is a Windows user ID

servername is the name of a server running QlikView Server

documentname is the name of the QlikView document (excluding qvw extension)

port (e.g. 4749) can be used to specify a specific port used by the server

protocol (e.g. http) can be used to specify tunneling protocol

paramname := (USERID | XUSERID | PASSWORD | XPASSWORD | MACRO |

IIS_AUTHENTICATE )

USERID denotes a section access userID in clear text

XUSERID denotes a scrambled section access userID

PASSWORD denotes a section access password in clear text

XPASSWORD denotes a scrambled section access password

MACRO denotes the name of a macro to be run when the document is opened

(only one macro allowed)

IIS_AUTHENTICATE denotes a single-use key (40 hex characters) for IIS integrated authentication.

paramvalue is a valid value for each parameter.

@ without username denotes anonymous identity.

If user identity is omitted altogether, the logged in Windows identity is assumed.

Examples:

qvp://www.qliktech.com/AcmeStores.qvw

qvp://@www.qliktech.com/AcmeStores.qvw

qvp://john.doe@www.qliktech.com/AcmeStores.qvw

qvp://www.qliktech.com:http/AcmeStores.qvw
