Without using EDX, can we trigger a task from external application?

Hi,

i have tasks created in the QMC, and i can be able to trigger and run the task using EDX.

but i want to know whether can we trigger the task without using EDX?

is there any other way to do that?

What are you requirements, that EDX doesn't meet?

You can always trigger reloads using the command line for either the QV.exe or the distribution service, but you would need to handle document distribution, exception handling, etc. manually.

Hi,

thanks for reply,

actually to run the EDX task, we need to add the user to QlikView EDX or QlikView Administrators group.

so if someone wants to run the task who is not in the Group, then how we can do that?

we have tasks like distributing reports to Server, Reloading and executing VB Scripts task in the Supporting task.

so how we can run the task without using EDX from an external app?

client wants to know that can we do this?

I've implemented the script identified in the following discussion by Vlad Gutkovsky...

http://community.qlik.com/thread/36620

The necessary users need to be added to the 'QlikView EDX' group, but it prevents them from launching a batch or executable file from their PC.  I added a network group to the 'QlikView EDX' group, simplifying the administration of the permitted users.

The task you create to be called by EDX can then trigger the supporting task upon successful completion.

Good luck,

B
