How can we change the name of application ?.

Suppose I deploy the application on server by name called ABC.QVW. I assigned the 100 doc cal and scheduled the reload task of the ABC.QVW.

But after some time I want to change the name of application on server from  ABC.QVW to XYZ.QVW without affecting assigned doc cal and scheduled task.

how it can be possible ?.

Please  share your idea and knowledge.

You could try to rename the .meta and .shared files along with the .qvw file.

hello sunil,

I did it through QMEC.

task creation includes Reduce Tab

Name written as  %Applicaationname%

and changed this Applicaationname with some other Name

and it is also working fine without any problem.

hope this helps you

hii sunil,

what about assigned doc cal if you change the name of application ?.

Hi Sunil,

As Karl points, license information are stored into .PGO files, so first backup your production folder with services stopped, rename all files in the original folder from ABC.PGO to XYZ.PGO, .Meta and .Shared

However, tasks should be disabled first in the QEMC, before moving or renaming the file, then recreated on the new names. You can try manually editing the WorkOrder.xml file under C:\Users\All Users\QlikTech\DistributionService although I'd do it manually, otherwise the "ghost" task may still appear causing unexpected behavior on the Server.

Hope that helps.
