How to modify Qlik Sense Engine's Settings.ini

This article supplements documentation that requires changes to the Qlik Sense Engine Settings.ini. No settings are provided in this article. 



  • Stop the Qlik Sense Engine and Qlik Sense Service Dispatcher services on all nodes with engines.
  • For each of the nodes: open Notepad as Administrator
  • Open the Settings.ini file (by default located at C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Engine\Settings.ini)
  • Modify the file to fit this schema:
[Settings 7]
  • Note the blank line at the end of the file
  • The file will look like this:
User-added image
  • The key and value will be provided by other knowledge articles or by a Qlik Support technical resource
  • Save the file
  • After these changes have been made on all nodes, start the Qlik Sense Engine and Qlik Sense Service Dispatcher services on each node.
  • In Qlik Sense Desktop, path to the file is C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Settings.ini (The <username> will be the user who installed Qlik Sense Desktop)

Hi, I've already updated my setting.ini on my local Workstation and it works well. But on the Qlik Sense Enterprise Server i don´t find this file. Can I add a new settings.ini file in the default path on my Qlik Sense Server?

I want to change the OverrideScriptSecurity to can Execute in the Qlik Sense Script on the Hub Version.


Thanks in advance!

Hello @SimonAichmayr 

You're looking to implement this, correct? https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/June2020/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/Scripting/ScriptRegularS...

Regardless: Before you go forward with creating a file, double-check that you're looking on the right node. So it's the Engine nodes you are looking for. Once you're certain, stop the Qlik Sense services and create your settings.ini file. Note that there should be a blank line at the end of the file.

Save it. Start the services. 

Hope this helps!


Hello @Sonja_Bauernfeind 

Yes, thats correct. I already found the file and I did the steps to get it done.

It works properly!

Thanks for your advice.
