Nprinting Server and sharepoint as a NPrinting report destination

Question

  • Does NPrinting have the ability to send NPrinting reports to a Microsoft Sharepoint or other worldwide web url address destination?

Environment

  • NPrinting: All Versions

Resolution

  • It is not possible to automatically distribute NPrinting reports from an NPrinting publish task to any type of HTTP, FTP or any other worldwide web url addresspath.
  • Therefore, it is not possible to send NPrinting Reports to a MS sharepoint worldwide web address.
  • To workaround, it is possible to use a local or network path as defined here in your help pages here: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/Content/NPrinting/AdministeringQVNprinting/Folder-destination....
  • Create a network share on the Sharepoint server and use that network folder as a destination for distribution your NPrinting reports to.


Local and Network path examples:

  • Local: c:\nprinting\output
  • network: \\myfileserver\files\nprintingoutput

    NOTE: Keep in mind that the NPrinting Scheduler service user account must have NTFS file and folder security permission to access local or network share folder destinations. It must also be in the same domain as the share point or destination server host address path or the NP service account will fail to open the network path.

*This feature is not planned nor on the NPrinting road map at this time. You can check our 'ideas' page to determine if this has been requested. You can add your request at the link below if it has not.
