Publish a link to a QlikView document in a Qlik Sense cloud hub

You can publish a link to a QlikView document in a cloud hub on Qlik Sense Enterprise on Cloud Services or on Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes. You must connect your QlikView Server installation to a Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment.

To publish a link to a QlikView document in a Qlik Sense cloud hub you must:

  • Configure the connection to a Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment in the QlikView Management Console.
  • Create a task to publish the link to a QlikView document in the cloud hub for the connected Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment.

Prerequisites

  • A licensed and running version of QlikView Server April 2019 or later, with a valid Publisher license.
  • A configured and running Qlik Sense Enterprise on Cloud Services or Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes cloud environment.

Connecting QlikView Server to a Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment

To allow the distribution of links to QlikView documents to a Qlik Sense cloud hub, you must connect your QlikView Server deployment to an existing Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment.

Do the following:

  1. In the QlikView Management Console, navigate to System, open the Setup tab, and select the Cloud Deployments folder.
  2. Select the Plus icon Add button to create a new cloud deployment connection.
  3. In the Service URL field, enter the complete URL to the Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment. Select Apply to confirm the addition of the cloud deployment.
  4. You now see a new cloud deployment listed in the Cloud Deployments folder.
  5. To edit the cloud deployment connection you added, select it from the list of available cloud deployments in the left-hand side menu. Then, select the General tab.

    1. In Deployment name, enter a name for the cloud deployment.
    2. In API endpoint, enter the address to the Qlik Sense cloud hub for the Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment.
    3. Select a web server from the Web Sever drop-down menu.
    4. If selected, deselect Disable distribution of links.
  6. In the General tab under Issuer configuration, generate the local bearer token by selecting Generate configuration.
    If you want to generate the local bearer token in Qlik Cloud Services format, select Qlik Cloud Services format.
    If you want to generate the local bearer token in text format, deselect Qlik Cloud Services format.
  7. Copy and save the local bearer token to a preferred location. You will need to apply it in the Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment to complete the connection with your QlikView Server deployment.
  8. For step by step instruction on how to apply the local bearer token in the Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment, see: Configuring your Qlik Cloud Services deployment.

  9. Select Apply to confirm the changes.

Creating a task to distribute a link to a Qlik Sense cloud hub

You distribute a link to a QlikView document to a connected Qlik Sense cloud hub by creating a task in the QlikView Management Console. Once the link is opened in the Qlik Sense cloud hub, the user is redirected to the QlikView Server environment, where the document is opened.

Do the following:

  1. In the QlikView Management Console, navigate to Documents, and open the Source Documents tab.
  2. Select the source document for which you want to distribute a link to a connected Qlik Sense cloud hub.
  3. Select thePlus icon Add button to create a new document task.
    If you want to edit an already existing task, select the Edit Task button.
  4. Tip: For a detailed description of how to configure a task, see the section: Source Documents.
  5. Set the QlikView Server (QVS) machine that will manage the document. The document is always opened in the QlikView Server environment and handled by a QVS machine.
    1. Select the Distribute tab, and open the Manually section.
    2. Under Distribute to QlikView Server, select the Plus icon Add button to create a new entry in the list.
    3. Under Server, select the QlikView Server (QVS) machine you want to use for opening the QlikView document when a user is redirected from the Qlik Sense cloud hub.
    4. Under User Type select the users you want to allow to access the document. For a detailed description of the options, see: Manually.
  6. Configure the link distribution.
    1. Select the Cloud Native Links tab.
    2. Select Send links to Cloud Native to enable the distribution of the link to a Qlik Sense cloud hub.
    3. In the Cloud Deployment drop-down menu select the Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployment you want to distribute the link to.
    4. Note: You can select only one cloud deployment. To distribute to multiple Qlik Sense Enterprise cloud deployments, create a separate document task for each cloud deployment.
    5. In the Collection field, type the name of an existing collection in the Qlik Sense cloud hub. If the name you insert does not correspond to any existing collection, a new collection with that name will be created and populated with the link.
    6. Select the users or groups you want to allow to access the link.
  7. Select Apply to confirm the creation of the task.
  8. Once created, the task is listed in theStatus, Task section. See: Tasks. Reload the task to distribute the link to the Qlik Sense cloud hub.
