Repository

On the Repository tab, the name of the database to use as repository for the QlikView Publisher (QVP) can be set. If the database does not exist, it will be created. The QlikView Publisher Repository (QVPR), is the database containing the information about every QVP task. The repository can be either XML based or stored on a Microsoft SQL Server.

Note: This tab is only available if a valid QlikView Publisher (QVP) license was installed.

One of the following options can be chosen:

  • XML Repository
  • Microsoft SQL Server

Depending on the chosen repository type, the settings available on the Repository tab will change.

Settings for XML Repository

Optional Base Path

Note: If this path contains a database with the same name, the data will be overwritten.

Migrate Data From Current Repository

When creating a database, it is possible to move the data from, for example, a company database to the new one. To migrate data from the current QVPR repository to a new path, tick this check box. To not migrate any data, untick this check box.

Warning: If the destination repository contains data, it will be overwritten. Please make a backup before continuing. If creating a database, the old one can be migrated, or the database will be empty from start.

The backup is saved as a .zip file, named using the time stamp of the file creation.
