Script Governance

hi,

i have a question.

assuming there are several developers with access to the QV scripts,

is there a way find out who made changes at the script?

few lines were commented (probably by mistake) - is there a way of checking who did it?

Regards,

Shay

Re: Script Governance

A  source control system should do what you want.

Version control - Wikipedia

You can put your application under source control:

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/12.1/Subsystems/Client/Content/Source_Control.htm

Or at least use include script files and only put these under source control.

Re: Script Governance

Shay, if you move over to a Version Controlled environment, you'ld better switch to a -prj document setup as well. Because the next mystery that you will probably face is something along the lines of "who broke expression 7 in that complex pivot table object in production". And those are even less transparent to figure out.

Switching to a -prj setup will save all aspects of a QlikView document to XML files, which - being ordinary text - can be tracked in that same VCS.

Best,

Peter

Re: Script Governance

Thanks Peter and Stefan,

if I understand you right, you both suggest the -prj folder as a solution.

can anyone, please, refer me to a guide or something about this?

Best Regards,

Shay
