The other way is enable Document logging, which it will tell you what process executed the reload either "QVB" = Publisher or "Qlikview Desktop" = Desktop. Then you can create a application that can read / feeds from those logs so it can be easy to read. Attached article explain how to enable Document logging.
Thank you for suggestion. It's a bit "excessive" approach (I have to detect the Load Type within the application itself), so I have to do the log file load BEFORE my main data load, but after the application has started.
My only concern is if QV releases log file to be accessed by other processes during the reload (looks like it is).
But in general, this should work, thank you.
I was hoping that this variable or parameter will be accessible to developers since QV writes this information (Process Executing: = .....) to the log file anyway. But it looks like one of "undocumented" features....
