Should QV be reloaded once the Process Chains are completed successfully?
If so, what is the purpose of QV triggering the BW Process chains?
There are several ways to have QlikView Reloads triggered by BW Process Chains though. You can look for a standard practice in the Qlik SAP Connector Manual as well as another optional way that I published in here using RFC.
Thanks and regards
Yes Qlikview will be reloaded once BW process chains are complete. The purpose of this approach is that normally BW process chains are scheduled once during the night to extract all the delta postings from ECC, but during month ends since the period remains open in ECC for first few days of the new month only the overnight loads are not sufficient since the user would like to see updated data in the reports for example the posting done in ECC in morning should be visible in afternoon. Hence special loads will be needed as per requirement.
So in order to automate it, my thinking was that users should be able to trigger a job in SAP BI from Qlikview which in turn executes the process chain gets the new data to BW and then loads it to QV by triggering the QV EDX task. I am aware about the method to trigger QV tasks from SAP but haven't heard of any approach vice versa.
