Configuring system function calculations

As an administrator, you can prevent some system functions from returning any value to end users, or API calls. This is an optional setting.

The following functions can be blocked from returning any value:

  • ComputerName()
  • EngineVersion()
  • OSName()
  • OSVersion()
  • ProductVersion()
  • QTProduct()
Information noteSome current applications may use the functions in conditional calculations.
  1. Navigate to %ProgramData%\Qlik\Sense\Engine and open Settings.ini.
  2. Edit the settings, see System function calculation settings in Settings.ini, and save.
  3. Restart the Qlik Sense Engine Service.

The setup is complete.
