Parsing Qlikview logs to capture user activity

Dear people,

We are trying to capture the clicks made by a user on a given dashboard, and thus get some data around their historical footprints around a dashboard. We plan to analyse the data in python and create some custom views for users when they log in again and create some kind of a personalization.

I need to understand what kind of logs would be required to do this activity. Would audit and session logs be sufficient. If yes, if anybody has done anything around the same topic, it would be very helpful indeed.

Re: Parsing Qlikview logs to capture user activity

That should cover it
You may need to Enable "Audit Logging" on the Logging tab of the QMC (Management Console).
QEMC > System > Setup > Qlikview Server > Logging > Enable audit logging.

You can process the "Audit*.log" files yourself or use the QlikView Governance Dashboard

Yes, the audit logs will provide information regarding the users' actions on the documents.
