Start session


Qlik Sense performs the following procedure:

  • A new proxy session starts when a user accesses Qlik Sense.


In case of success, log entries are written in the following files throughout the procedure:

  • <MachineName>_AuditActivity_Proxy.txt


Cannot start session

Cannot start session error

If a user cannot start a new proxy session, it is most likely related to:

  • The configuration of the Qlik Sense Proxy Service (QPS)
  • Installation-specific issues

Search for any log message with the following information:

Command=Start session;Result=<different from zero>;ResultText=Error: <error message>

Message If you find a log entry similar to the one described above, evaluate the information in the Message field.

If there are no log entries for Start session, check the configuration of the QPS by examining the log entries for the Start proxy command.
