Qlik GeoAnalytics Server settings


Qlik GeoAnalytics Server settings

Cheat sheet for useful settings in QGA Server. Full documentation available here: http://developer.idevio.com/ravegeoserver/


Allow QGA connector to reach local databases and files

Needed to access local file systems (like reading shapefile) and access GIS databases like PostGIS.


Modify the file C:\ProgramData\IdevioServer\server3\modules\geoanalytics\config\GeoAnalyticsModule.xml

and restart server.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<GeoAnalyticsModule enableDatabaseAccess="true"/>


DB Drivers should be installed in ~ ProgramData/Qlik GeoAnalytics Server/server3/lib

More info on connecting to DB; http://bi.idevio.com/geoanalytics/connect-to-database-in-geoanalytics-plus


Allow QGA Server to access local image files

The server block per default requests (with 403) to the same machine / local network.

Then "Blocked access to local network: ..." should be in the server log.


Modify the file C:\ProgramData\Qlik GeoAnalytics Server\server3\modules\webmap5\config\WebMap5Module.xml

and restart server.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<WebMap5Module allowGetResourceLocal="true" />

Force QGA Server to set https as referal protocol

When doing port forwarding or using load balancers in front of QGA server(s) then it's necessary to tell the QGA server to use https as the protocol in subsequent calls. The protocol behind the LB is normally http.

Update C:\ProgramData\Qlik GeoAnalytics Server\server3\modules\webmap5\config\WebMap5Module.xml:

Add <WebMap5Module forceSSL="true"/>

How would you combine the allowGetResourceLocal and forceSSL attributes in the same xml config file?

Would this work?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


Do this instead:

<WebMap5Module forceSSL="true" allowGetResourceLocal="true" />

Thanks, Patric
