Should I be running this from Qlikview server or Nprinting Server?

Is there a separate steps to run it from any local Desktop.

 

Thank you,

Rakul.

Hello @bluecarbon  The steps above are for a QlikView Desktop client connecting to the Nprinting Rest API. So they'd be carried out on the QlikView Desktop. 

This would then presumably enter information in the script so you can reuse the document on a QlikView server.

Hi, is there any solution for kerberos authentication method?

At the moment, I only get error 401 (Unauthorized).

Thank you, Antonio

Hello @AntonioC 

There are additional steps required to enable Kerberos for use with NPRinting. See Kerberos authentication.

Should you require additional assistance after setting this up, I would recommend posting on our Qlik NPrinting forums.

All the best,
Sonja
