How To Export NP 16 Templates and Import to NPrinting 17+ Environment

You have decided to migrate to NPrinting 17+ Platform from NPrinting 16 and you want to use your existing NP 16 templates rather than rebuilding everything.

NOTE: 

  • You must be running QlikView NPrinting 16 SR 3 or higher to leverage the project export tool found in the NP template editor. 
  • Entity Reports cannot be migrated to NPrinting 17+ platform at this time. There is no 'Edit Template' button/report editor for Entity Reports in NP 18. Thus the entity reports cannot be imported and will need to be manually recreated

 

Environments affected:

 

Updated: A New Migration tool will be available from November 2019 release of NPrinting and later versions. See the following links: 
 


Notes:

  • You can only import NP 16 report templates and related report objects only
  • You must generate the same source application in both NP 16 and NPrinting 17+. For example, you must generate the SalesDemo.qvw in NPrinting 17+ if that is the QVW that was used to build the report on the NP 16 platform.
  • at this time it is not possible to migrate schedules, jobs, tasks, filters or any other items etc. These items must be recreated in NPrinting 17+ versions
  • It is only possible to migrate reports and their respective report templates at this time. 
  • A comprehensive tool for importing additional NP 16 items is expected for release later in 2019
  • Link fields created in NPrinting and QV bookmarks used as NPrinting filters cannot be migrated to NPrinting 17+ platform as these features will not be available on that platform.
  • End of Life support for NP 16 extended https://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Support-Updates-Blog/Qlik-NPrinting-16-Important-Support-update/b...
