    Copy all jobs via xml?

    James Phillips

      All, is it possible to copy certain files into QVPR and have the jobs automatically re appera with all the triggers and dependancies?

      We upgraded from SR2 to SR3 and lost all jobs. Without having to recreate the wheel, can I not copy over certain files and have it all back? I have the old folder saved off on another drive so I have access to all of the files. I just cannot seem to put the right "Puzzle" together for all of it to work



      Any Ideas?

          Why did upgrading to SR3 make you lose all your jobs?

          I think this is possible. I've never tried it with ALL tasks, but since it definitely works with 1 task I don't see why not. Stop the Distribution, Management, and Publisher services. Here are the files that you will need to copy (replacing the files that are there):

          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\Workorders should contains 1 xml file. Don't replace it, but rather open it for editing and then copy the contents of the backup into the new one (so that the new name is preserved)
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\DistributionDetail.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\DocumentTask.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\ExternalProgramTask.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\Rule.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\SourceDocument.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\SourceDocumentFolderResource.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\TaskCategory.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\TaskDependency.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\QVPR\Trigger.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\Qlikview Distribution Service\Workorder.xml
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\Qlikview Distribution Service\1\Workorder.xml

          Once the files have been replaced, you can start the stopped services. I think that should do the trick. Let me know how it goes.

            If you have temp license, You can try copying the files using remote management services.
