Trigger load in QVMC by external event (EDX)

Hi all,

I want to trigger a task in QVMC (reload of a QV report) by running a .bat file.

  • I have downloaded the QMSEDX.exe and QMSEDA.exe.config
  • I have created the task which is triggered by EDX and the password is 000

My problem:

I cant seem to get the .bat file to work properly and trigger the reload in QVMC.

My .bat file looks like this:

"<filepath>QMSEDX.exe -task="Test EDX.qvw" -qms=http://<QVserverName>:4799/QMS/Service -password=000"

exit

Can anyone give me a "step-by-step" for dummies ?

Thanks in advance

If you run this command from the DOS command line, what does the QMSEDX program return?

Edit: add -verbosity=5 to your command line to get the largest amount of feedback.

It does not return anything. Even without the "Exit" part of the command, the command window only birefly opnes and then it is closed automatically

A step-by-step guide can be found here: Trigger QV Task using command line arguments

Searching for a specific term like "QMSEDX" with just type "Documents" marked, will always return useful information from the extensive resource library in this community.

Re: Trigger load in QVMC by external event (EDX)

This is what you get when you run the bat/cmd file. Instead, open a CMD prompt window and enter your command line (starting with "pathtoprogram\QMSEDX.exe...") and add the -verbosity=5 command line option.

the command prompt only returns the message that QMSEDX is not a valid win 32 program.

Re: Trigger load in QVMC by external event (EDX)

There you have it: your copy of QMSEDX is either broken or not suitable to run on your OS. Can you download the latest copy again (1.0.4 I guess), check the zip for any errors and extract a new copy of QMSEDX?

Re: Trigger load in QVMC by external event (EDX)

Hi,

BTW, thank you so much for your help!

Now I got a different error message running the .bat:

"D:\QlikView Storage\EDX\QMSEDX.exe" -task="4_Development\Test EDX.qvw" -qms="http://10.120.0.400:4799/QMS/Service.htm" -password="123"

I suspect it may be that I do not have the correct  QV server box (ref your post)

10.120.0.400 is the server address

I have tried to follow the recipie from your post,to find the QV Server box (properties on my computer), but the computer name there does not work either.

Any ideas?

this is the error message

Re: Trigger load in QVMC by external event (EDX)

I don't think your server software is at fault. However, check the following:

  • 10.120.0.400 is not a valid IP-address. It will never work
  • On the QlikView server, is port 4799 (the one you are using) opened?
  • Are you running this on the QlikView server itself (in a remote session)? If you are, use localhost as server name. If not, try to open http://serveraddress/qlikview to see whether the AP is showing up  Whenever that works, you can be sure that the serveraddress is correct.

Best,

Peter

Re: Trigger load in QVMC by external event (EDX)

I would also recommend using localhost if you are running this on the server.

You can verify the address from QMC like this:

System/Setup: Click on Management Service.

In Summary on the right you will see :

"To connect to the API of this Management Service use: https://<server>:4799/QMS/Service "
