    qvp connection in nprinting

    Anjali Ahlawat

      Hi,

       

      I have an urgent requirement where i want to make a qvp connection with my qvw using NPrinting 17.3.

       

      The qvw is in the same server itself.

       

      I saw in community that the template in nprinting gets updated only with server and cluster connections ,not with local connections.

       

      I want to copy that qvp path and paste in nprinting server connection to proceed further.

       

      PLease let me know if there is any possible suggestion.

       

      Thanks in advance.

          Hi,

           

          About Connections refer to Creating connections ‒ Qlik NPrinting. The chapter "Connecting to QlikView documents on the QlikView Server" is related to QlikView Server connections.

           

          To find the document address, usually it is qvp://QlikViewServerName/Document.qvw. Before to create the NPrinting connection, open the same document by using QlikView Desktop; you will see the correct server address. Refer to https://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/12.1/Subsystems/Client/Content/Open_in_Server.htm

           

          If you connect a QlikView Document as local, to see the updated data after a reload you need to run an NPrinting connection cache reload. If you connect the same document via qvp (QlikView server) you don't need the NPrinting metadata reload to see the updated data in NPrinting reports.

          I would to suggest you to upgrade to June 2017 because it has a new feature that lets you to trigger the connection cache generation. So you can connect a QlikView Document as local, update it and schedule an NPrinting cache reload.

           

          Best Regards,

          Ruggero

              Hi Ruggero,

               

              Thanks a lot for the revert but I am still stuck at the same place.Please help me with the below queries:

               

              1. Please tell me can I go for a qvp connection even if my application and nprinting resides in the same server?

               

                  2. Upgrade to June 2017 because it has a new feature that lets you to trigger the connection cache generation. So you can connect a QlikView Document as local, update it and schedule an NPrinting cache reload.: I tried this as well still my reports are showing the old data only. Is there any task that I have to create for nprinting cache reload ?

               

                   3. To find the document address, usually it is qvp://QlikViewServerName/Document.qvw. Before to create the NPrinting connection, open the same document by using QlikView Desktop; you will see the correct server address :

              When I am using open in server,it is not showing or connecting to any qvw document as such. Can I make a qvp connection for the file residing in the same server or no ?

               

              Overall,

               

              All i want is my report should show the updated data.PLaese help me in this as I am not getting solution from anywhere.

               

              Thanks in advance.

              Hi,

               

              If qvw and Nprinting are in the same server, then you can use local path qvp is not necessary.

              If qvw and Nprinting are in different instances, then qvp path will help.


              Thanks

                  my qvw and nprinting are in the same server,but the prob is with refresh of my qvw ,my template is not refreshing in local connection and i have seen somewhere in qlik community that we should either have a server or cluster connection to make it work. that's why I want to know how can i make a server connection.

                   

                  Thanks everyone.
