          Hi Gerardo,

           

          In Qlikview, this is how you do it. Try the same with Qliksense :

           

          Changing QlikView Web Server log files


          By default the QlikView WebServer logs are stored in

          Windows Server 2008 – C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\WebServer\

          Windows Server 2003 – C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QlikTech\WebServer\

           

          QlikView WebServer

          1. To change the default directory when using the QlikView WebServer
            1. Goto C:\Program Files\QlikView\Server\Web Server\
            2. In the directory above, create a file called QVWebServer.exe.config
            3. Paste the following code to your new config file:

          <?xmlversion="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><configuration>  <appSettings>    <!-- Defaults to %PROGRAMDATA%\QlikTech\WebServer -->    <addkey="ApplicationDataFolder" value="NEW LOCATION" />  </appSettings></configuration>

          1. Replace NEW LOCATION with a directory you have created for the new log files.
          2. Copy the existing config.xml file in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\WebServer\ or C:\Documentsand Settings\All Users\Application Data\QlikTech\WebServer\ to your NEW LOCATION (this config.xml file contains important configurations of your Web Server that you have already made)
          3. Restart all of your QlikView services and ensure that new log files are being created in the new location.

          IIS WebServer

          1. To change the default directory when using the IIS Webserver
            1. Go to C:\Program Files\QlikView\Server\QlikViewClients\QlikViewAjax\
            2. In the directory above, edit the file called web.config
            3. Find the tag called <appSettings/>, and replace it with the following code:

          <appSettings>  <!-- Defaults to %PROGRAMDATA%\QlikTech\WebServer -->  <add key="ApplicationDataFolder" value="NEW LOCATION" /></appSettings> Note: The <appSettings/> tag is an empty tag. It is different from the</appSettings> closing tag. Replace the empty tag with the proper code above that includes the open tag and the close tag for <appSettings></appSettings>.

          1. Replace NEW LOCATION with a directory you have created for the new log files.
          2. Copy the existing config.xml file in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\WebServer\ or C:\Documentsand Settings\All Users\Application Data\QlikTech\WebServer\ to your NEW LOCATION (this config.xml file contains important configurations of your Web Server that you have already made)
          3. Restart all of your QlikView services and ensure that new log files are being created in the new location.

           

           

          Thanks,

          Sangram.

            Functionally speaking there isn't a supported method. The method that I've seen mentioned by Product Managers when this issue has come up is to use Windows junctions to have Qlik Sense write the log files to a different drive.
