Q: Can we make App specific Data Job alerts (Success/Failure)?
A: Yes, if you would like to get an alert when a specific app has been reloaded successfully or otherwise has failed, then you can use “System alerts”
Q: From which Qliksense version onwards alerts are available?
A: According to the help page: Minimum recommended version of Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows is February 2019.
Q: How can I get an alert if a QlikView job fails to load, or if an NPrinting job fails to execute?
A: Not possible, for now Qlik Alerting is only available to set it up with Qlik Sense, starting from QS February 2019 .
Q: Hello, I have a questions regarding the conditions. They seemed to only use operators, but can we apply filters or selections to the alert?
A: Yes, you can apply filters and conditions.
Q: In DATA alert, can you edit an ADDED MEASURE?
A: If you mean if you can edit a measure once it has been created, yes you can do it after from the QA web console.
Q: Is it mandatory to have different machines for Qlik Sense and Qlik Alerting?
A: Not mandatory but best practice is to have them in separate machines.
Q: Can you loop through Selections to test condition on each?
A: Yes, using filters and more advanced conditions, you can find some examples in our Help Page.
Q: Since it's included in SaaS, does that mean there's no added cost?
A: Yes, exactly, for Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS there is no extra cost, but it is only available for SaaS Enterprise, not in Qlik Sense Business.
Q: Can Custom notifications be used to send alerts in another language?
A: Yes, sure, it can be sent in any language as they are custom notification so you only need to put whatever text you like.
