What is the difference between Source Documents and User Documents? Should we save same files in both locations of server(Source Documents and Documents folder) ??? Please clarify
Source document is a folder use by QlikView Publisher for reloading and distributing QVW. The QVW stored in this folder is not visible to end user in AccessPoint.
User Document folder is the folder that store the QVW that visible to end user in the AccessPoint.
Publisher will automaticallly publish the QVW stored in Source Document to User Document folder once the scheduled task is completed. (This will include access rights, data reduction, etc...)
As per the last line------------(Publisher will automaticallly publish the QVW stored in Source Document to User Document folder once the scheduled task is completed. (This will include access rights, data reduction, etc...))-------------
For example I have Example.QVW
The Example.QVW is mounted under (D:\Deployment\....) for User Documents
Now I have created the task for the Example.QVW. Do I have to mount same location (D:\Deployment\....) in Source Document or it is not necessary ?
If your answer is not necessary then I have pointed(E:\Testing\....) for Source Document then how the users will see the updated Example.QVW in Access Point?
Hope you understand my question!
The flow is Source Document -> User Document.
Publisher will open the document in Source Document, reload and Publish (copy) it to User Document. Normally the Source Document folder is different from User Document folder. The source and user document path is defined in System tab in QMC.
Let me add to khim_hoe reply. The User Document folder is the Root or Mounted Folders you setup in the QMC. See below image.
I am working on QEMC v10. I created a new folder and added the folder to the folder section. I can see it in the source document tab but I cannot expand it to see the subfolders. However, I do see it in User Documents and I can expand it. I have not scheduled any tasks on these documents becuase I cannot get to them in Source Document tab to create tasks. Two questions:
1. Why cant I expand the folder in Source documents?
2. Why are the qvws showing in User Documents when I did not schedule a task?
FYI: I am not server trained or certified. I know the basics and that is it.
Do you have a publisher license?
