    Execute a QVW on Server WITHOUT Admin rights ?

      can a user WITHOUT admin rights execute a QVW script on the server, f.e. to manually reload the data ?

      If so, is this possible from:


      - the web interface

      - the qlikview client, when it is connected to the server


      the user should only execute the script

      - no changes to the script are necessary, but the script does not need to be "read only"


      this (a reloead/execute function) would be extremely usefull.

          Hi Alexander

          Without administrator i.e the person who uses qemc must have to have administrator rights to run this succesfully.

          some times port sharing is required.

          and some times tunneling is required.

          which cannot be acheived by normal user

          Therefore its Manditory to have Admin account in order to run services and to administrate qlikview properly.

              i assume that my question was lacking some information

              port sharing etc. is not necessary for the user if the server is allready running (server is running under different user)


              there are a few qvw on the server which are also executed on the server. the data is loaded from SQL.


              is it possible, to execute a allready running qvw (located on the server, allready loaded by the server and displayed by the portal)

              through the qlikview client on the server (resulting in the QVW file using the servers ram and cpu, not the client)?

              One option you have here is to give the user the ability to trigger an EDX (Event Driven Execution) access in Server/Publisher.  They have to be a member of the "Qlikview EDX" security group on the server (you have to manually create this group if you haven't already.)  Also, you must set the reload in Server/Publisher as "On event of another task." "External event" (corrected)




              I haved used Rob Wunderlich's RequestEDX vbscript in conjunction with a simple batch file I set up for the user to trigger the reload event.  So all he/she has to do "double click" on the icon for the batch file, and it triggers the reload.  Keep in mind any member of this group could kick off any reload if you don't set up EDX passwords. Repost if you need more explanation.
