Meta files - General information


A file with the extension .meta is saved for each QVW on your QlikView Server and will be located in the same folder than the QVW together with the .shared file.

The .meta file shares the following information concerning the QVW document:

  • Whether creation of server objects is allowed for this document and for which user
  • Availability information (With which client can the user open the QVW document, if download is allowed and session collaboration)
  • Performance information (Session timeout for the document)
  • Whether Audit logging is enabled for this document
  • On which node is the document available and is it preloaded.
  • Authorizations when DMS mode is used to control access rights.
  • The category the document belongs to
  • Attributes associated with the document

All these settings are set directly on the document in the QlikView Management Console (QMC) in Documents > User documents

Resolution:


If corruption of .meta files is suspected, it is generally recommended to remove the files and set these settings again.
