Has anyone been able to integrate this with SAML authentication? Is it possible even with some customization? Redhat SSO for example. 



I have not heard of anyone implementing this and we do not have any plans to do so.

To add support probably a new authentication action is needed. This can be done in golang code, either by making fork of the opensource engine for the tools and implementing the action (if intention is to contribute it back)

Or for purely custom and internal usage for a customer, a fork of this template repo to make a customer specific tool using the same engine (gopherciser) and adding a custom action there (if intention is to not contribute it back)





I am working with qlik sense Nov 22 version installed on windows servers , i was using the Qlik sense enterprise scalability tool 1.7 to run some tests. It was all fine until we had to install a patch on the qlik sense enterprise (patch 12)  I am not able to connect to the site and run tests post this patching. Any suggestions workarounds/alternatives  to make this work? 

I also tried the newer version of the qsest1.8 , faced the same problem..

Thank you,




I suspect that the reason is a change in allowed headernames for the virtual proxy. On that patch, headers that start with "X-Qlik" will not be accepted. So, if you use header authentication you will need to change the name of those headers in QMC and the tools to something else, for example X-Sense-User.

Best Regards
