By default, QlikView Publisher Repository (QVPR) is a set of XML files. These files are backed up as .zip files in %ProgramData%\QlikTech\ManagementService\QVPR\Backups.
When installing QlikView Server/Publisher, a couple of security groups are created.
The QlikView Server/Publisher services must run under an account that is member of the security group QlikView Administrators. Users connecting to QMC must be part of this group. Anyone connecting to a remote service must also be member of QlikView Administrators.
The users connecting through the API must be members of the QlikView Management API security group. The group is not created during the installation and has to be added (and populated, for example, with the members of the QlikView Administrators group) manually. A membership in this group is required to import tasks from another QlikView Server/Publisher.
The QlikView EDX security group is not created during the installation and has to be added (and populated) manually in order for users to run EDX tasks.
To delegate the responsibility of creating tasks to people not part of the QlikView Administrators group, users can be appointed document administrators. The document administrators are only allowed to access the tabs in QMC that are related to either user documents or source documents.
For more information on how to appoint document administrators, see the QMC online help.
In a default installation, this file is located in %ProgramFiles%\QlikView\Management Service. The file has a number of automatically generated tags that should not be modified, but the settings listed below can be modified.
|ApplicationDataFolder||Folder where the log folder and all other files/folders are created. The default value is %ProgramData%\QlikTech\ManagementService. This folder is where the XML version of QVPR and the LEF information are stored.|
|UseHTTPS||True = Communication runs over https. A certificate for the web site is needed to enable this setting.|
|Trace||Used for debug logging.|
|QMSBackendListenPort||Port that the back end management service listens to. The default value is 4799.|
|QMSFrontendWebServicePort||Port that the front end management service listens to. The default value is 4780.|
|MaxLogRecords||Maximum number of log records that should be retrieved for a task.|
|EnableAuditLogging||True = Track a) changes on tasks and settings made in the system, b) who made the changes, and c) when the changes were made.|
|AuditLogFolder||Path to the folder where the audit logs are saved.|

List of semicolon-separated email addresses. An email will be sent to the listed receivers in case of service failure. Adding email-addresses to the ServiceFailureAlertEmailAddresses tag activates the feature. The Management Service must be restarted for the change to take effect. This feature requires a mail server to be configured in the QMC. See Mail server setup for details.
The email subject and body can be customized by using ServiceFailureAlertEmailSubject and ServiceFailureAlertEmailBody.
|ServiceFailureAlertEmailBody||The plain-text body of the email that will be sent in case of service failure.|
|ServiceFailureAlertEmailSubject||The subject of the email that will be sent in case of service failure.|

|ApplicationDataFolder||Folder where the log folder and all other files/folders are created. The default value is %ProgramData%\QlikTech\DistributionService. This folder is where the XML version of QVPR and the LEF information are stored.|
|WebservicePort||Port that the QlikView Distribution Service uses to communicate with. The default value is 4720.|
|UseHTTPS||True = Communication runs over https.|
|DSCAddress||Port that the Directory Service Connector service uses to communicate with. The default value is 4730. If the value is modified, the tag “DSCAddress” in the QVDirectoryServiceConnector.exe.config file has to be modified too.|
|DSCTimeoutSeconds||Timeout for calls to the Directory Service Connector.|
|DSCCacheSeconds||How long the service caches the responses from the Directory Service Connector.|
|QlikViewEngineQuarantineTimeInms||How often a QlikView engine is allowed to start (in milliseconds).|
