    EDX task with variable

      Hi All,

      I'm trying to fire the EDX task with variable.
      QlikView Server manual, section 26.2 Triggering EDX Enabled Tasks, contains following sentence:
      "The variables are entered according to the same pattern as in QEMC"

      I've been searching for the explanation of "pattern as in QEMC" without success.
      I have tried to fire the EDX task using following message:
      <Global method="RequestEDX" key="SgdqD6cAevbmS4dO1D28PjRtVyZ6RFPS"><i_TaskIDOrTaskName>Test/QV _EDXVarTest.qvw</i_TaskIDOrTaskName><i_Password /><i_VariableName>vLoadVar</i_VariableName><i_VariableVal ueList>2</i_VariableValueList></Global>

      Task is reloaded, but it does not consider the variable parameter.

      Can you tell me how the variable section of EDX message should look like?

      Looking forward to hear from you.

       

      Kind regards,

      Janusz

        • EDX task with variable

          Hi All,

          After spending some time with the QlikView support, finally I know what is going on.

          First at all, the syntax od the EDX message included in the QVS manual has a gap. To send the variable to the EDX task, syntax should be like that:

          [..]
          <i_VariableName>VarName</i_VariableName>
          <i_VariableValueList>
          <string>Value1</string>
          <string>Value2</string>
          <string>..and so on...</string>
          </i_VariableValueList>
          [..]

          Second, variable will be considered during the EDX task, only if you are using Publisher license. This is a bug (ID 25299). It should work also with the standard QVS license. Probably it would be fixed in the next release, but QlikTech is not sure for 100%.

          Kind regards,

          Janusz
