27.5 Triggering EDX Enabled Tasks

In order to start the tasks that have an external event as trigger, you must make two POST type request

calls to the QlikView Distribution Service that has been assigned the task. The user making the request

calls must be member of the local group QlikView Administrators or QlikView EDX. The QlikView

Administrators group is set up during installation of QlikView Server, but the QlikView EDX group you

must create yourself in Computer Management. A member of the QlikView EDX group has only the

right to trigger an EDX enabled task.

Event Driven Execution (EDX) allows the running of QlikView batch jobs based on external events. The primary usage of EDX is to have an external scheduler or Extract,Transform, and Load (ETL) tool (for example, Informatica) run QlikView batch jobs as part of a larger batch process. There are also other use cases, forexample, triggering a QlikView batch when a file arrives and user-initiated batches.
