You must configure QlikView Web Server Access Point to connect with the Qlik Sense machine.

Do the following:

  1. Click the System tab.
  2. In the QlikView Web Server folder, open the current QlikView Web Server machine.
  3. On the Access Point tab, click Server Connections.
  4. Using the drop-down menu, change the name of the QlikView web server from local to the machine name.
