There was a discussion about how to get EDX remote task execution feature in Qlikview 11.
Author did include a lot of artifacts which explained the entire new procedure. Unfortunately some of the users were not familiar with Microsoft C# projects and they were having confusion how to make use of these tools. I tried to reply there , but the thread was closed. Intension of this post is to help users who are struggling to replace their old EDX task.
In the abovementioned post you can find an attachment called_CommandLine_v1.exe. Extract this exe to any location of your choice. You will get following files after the extraction
QMSEDX.exe.config & QMSEDX.exe.
Both of these files are essential for executing the task
Following is the syntax for using the exe file
/// Commandline call:
/// qmsedx -task=name [-qms=qmsaddress] [-password=pwd] [-variablename=vname] [-variablevalues=vvalues] [-timeout=timeout] [-pollinterval=interval] [-verbosity=verbosity]
/// -task [REQUIRED]: The name or id of the task to execute.
/// -qms [OPTIONAL]: The address of the qms. Default is the local host.
/// -password (-pwd) [OPTIONAL]: The password required to execute the task, if set.
/// -variablename (-vn) [OPTIONAL]: The name of the variable to pass on to the task, if set.
/// -variablevalues (-vv) [OPTIONAL]: A semicolon separated list of values of the variable to pass on to the task.
/// -timeout (-to) [OPTIONAL]: How many seconds to wait for the task to finish. Default value is one minute.
/// -pollinterval (-pi) [OPTIONAL]: How often to check the status of the task. Default value is every five seconds.
/// -verbosity [OPTIONAL]: The level of output, 0-5. 0 will not produce any output and 5 is the most verbose.
I copied both these files to a server and created a .bat file with following code
C:\Users\Username\Desktop\qmsedx -task="DEV SAP BW ScriptBuilder" -password=123.
(In order to create a bat file, just write your argument in the notepad and save it with extn .bat)
Then i executed it using command line and the task executed in my publisher. Read the whitepaper that is attached in the previous post for more information
Although the EDX task execution feature went away with 11, it is still easy to execute the task from an external system.
