    Track QMC changes

    Manish Madan

      Hi All,

       

      Someone has changed a setting on QV server(ON QMC). We have to track who has made a change.

      how we can track it.we tried looking at qlik audit logs but it has Qlik access point auditing details.

       

      Please suggest.

       

      Thanks

          The managament service also offers the capability to audit changes in a separate log file. The auditing is mostly related to task definition changes.

           

          There is a switch in the QMC, but it is greyed out. To enable QMS auditing, follow these steps: Check for when/by who a Publisher task was disa... | Qlik Community

           

          Best,

              If you use XML for your repository then locate your QVPR directory

               

              C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\ManagementService\QVPR

               

              by default.

               

              You will find files like QVSCluster.xml there are many different files to represent different aspects of your QlikView setup. You'll need to find the correct file depending on which setting you want to see the changes to..

               

              Most entries in these XML files have entries like

               

              ModifiedByUser="DOMAIN\USER" ModifiedTime="2016-08-01T11:25:40.5569422-05:00"

               

              and from here you can see which AD user last made change and when that change was.

               

              If you have automatic QVPR backups enabled then in this QVPR directory you will find another folder Backups which will in turn have a zip file for each back up made going back through time.

               

              With this you might be able to find the changes made to your setting of interest and who made them.
