  • URL
  • Enter the path to the second QlikView Server in this text box.



    Information noteQVP links can only be opened in QlikView Desktop.
  • Link Machine Name
  • If the QlikView Server cluster is not exposed externally with the same name as is used internally, an external name must be entered in this text box. This is to enable QlikView documents in the QlikView plugin. To mimic the behavior of version 8.5, it is possible to enter (FromRequest) (including the parenthesis) in this text box. The name exposed externally will then be the same as the URL that the client uses to connect to the QlikView AccessPoint, that is, the setting is taken from the request coming from the client.

    Information noteIf this text box is left empty, the name exposed for the clients will be the computer name of the QlikView Server.


To entirely remove a configured entry from the list, click on the Delete icon,Delete.
