On-Demand reports

On-Demand reports are Qlik NPrinting reports created manually within the QlikView AccessPoint interface or the Qlik Sense visualization extension.

You can download reports directly from the On-Demand interface, without using the NewsStand.

QlikView AccessPoint interface

To enable On-Demand reports, you must:

  • Install the Qlik NPrinting On-Demand add-on on your QlikView Server or server cluster.
  • Configure On-Demand settings on the Qlik NPrinting Server to enable On-Demand report creation in your Qlik NPrinting apps. This includes:
    • Adding your QlikView Server as a trusted origin.
    • Enabling your Qlik NPrinting reports for On-Demand.

Once enabled, users whose security roles permit On-Demand report creation can then create reports within the QlikView AccessPoint interface. Only reports enabled for On-Demand reporting are available within the QlikView AccessPoint interface. Administrators can manage the execution of On-Demand report tasks.

Qlik Sense visualization extension

The On-Demand reporting extension is a visualization extension that adds a button to create Qlik NPrinting reports on demand in Qlik Sense. It is included in Dashboard bundle.

See: On-Demand reporting extension.

You need to have access to a Qlik NPrinting Server (June 2017 or later) with a Qlik NPrinting app that is connected to the Qlik Sense app that you are designing. This Qlik NPrinting app contains your report templates. There are some additional requirements:

  • Reports need to be enabled for On-Demand in the Qlik NPrinting web console. See: Enabling On-Demand reports.

  • All users running On-Demand reports need to be added as users in Qlik NPrinting, with a security role that supports running On-Demand reports.
