Qlik Sense Server 3.2 SR5 Host Name

Hi all,

I am installing a Qlik Sense Server 3.2 SR5 on my production Server (Shared Persistent Single Node installation).

We have a Host Name for our Production Server

i.e. MachineName :- QSenseProdServer1

      HostName :- MyCompany.com

We wish our users to use URL like https://mycompany.com/hub/ when accessing Qlik Sense.

My confusion with the server installation window is when the Host Name window shown below appears

Should I use the assigned hostname i.e. mycompany.com or QSenseProdServer1 inside the window.

Kindly suggest. Thanks in advance....

Best Regards

better to manage it in DNS, create your host and redirect the users to Qlik sense hub.

Hi Yousef,

The HostName is assigned in DNS only. Ideally the setting should work even by keeping the default value.

I just wanted to be sure on this as I do not wish to have a trial and error. Thanks...

Hi Michael,

The value for the installer is the fully qualified hostname.

To use https://mycompany.com/hub/  , you set this up later by binding a valid certificate for mycompany.com to the proxy, adding mycompany.com the the virtual proxy's whitelist and ensuring the DNS entry for mycompany.com points to your server.
