Creating apps

Qlik NPrinting apps contain report templates, filters, and connections to Qlik Sense apps or QlikView documents.

This is different from Qlik Sense apps, which contain data, and use visualizations to explore that data.


The Qlik NPrinting Engine configuration must be complete. See: Qlik NPrinting installation.


You can use our sample files to create your app. To download these files, see: Sample files.

Open the Qlik NPrinting Server

Do the following:

  1. Open your browser and point it to your Qlik NPrinting Server by opening the URL https://YourServerName:4993.
  2. Note: Use the https protocol and the port 4993 for the standard installation. For example: https://localhost:4993
  3. Log into the Qlik NPrinting Server using your Windows or Qlik NPrinting user account with administrative privileges.
  4. Click on the Qlik NPrinting login button.
  5. Close the Welcome to Qlik NPrinting pop-up window if it appears.

The Qlik NPrinting dashboard will appear. It shows the most recent apps, tasks, and reports.

Deleting apps

The user role that you to use to delete an app must have the Delete permission enabled.

Warning: Deleting an app will remove all associated reports and filters.

  2. Locate the app you want to delete. Use the View and Filter options if there are many apps.
  3. Click on the V icon in the Actions column for the app that you want to delete.

The app is removed from the Qlik NPrinting Server.

Creating connections

Qlik NPrinting uses data from specific QlikView documents or Qlik Sense apps. You must create at least one connection, but there is no limit to the number of connections you can add to a Qlik NPrinting Server app.

Connections are associated with individual apps in Qlik NPrinting. Each connection is specific to the app. See: Creating connections .
