Editing an analytic connection

With analytic connections you are able to integrate external analysis with your business discovery. An analytic connection extends the expressions you can use in load scripts and charts by calling an external calculation engine (when you do this, the calculation engine acts as a server-side extension (SSE)). For example, you could create an analytic connection to R, and use statistical expressions when you load the data.

Do the following:

  1. Select Analytic connections on the QMC start page or from the StartS drop-down menu to display the overview.

  2. Select the analytic connections that you want to edit and click Edit in the action bar.

  3. Edit the properties.

  4. Property Description
    Name

    Name of the analytic connection. Must be unique. Mapping/alias to the plugin that will be used from within the expressions in the app using the plugin functions, for example, SSEPython for a Python plugin or R for an R plugin.

    Host

    Host of the analytic connection, for example, localhost if on the same machine or mymachinename.qlik.com if located on another machine.

    Port Port to use when connecting.
    Certificate file path

    The full path to the certificate. The path should point to the folder containing both the client and server certificates and keys. This path just points to the folder where the certificates are located. You have to make sure that they are actually copied to that folder. The names of the three certificate files must be the following: root_cert.pem, sse_client_cert.pem, sse_client_key.pem. Only mutual authentication (server and client authentication) is allowed.

    Note: It is optional to set the certificate file path, but the connection is insecure without a path.
    Reconnect timeout (seconds) Default value: 20
    Request timeout (seconds) Default value: 0
  5. Click Apply in the action bar to save the analytic connection.

  6. Successfully updated is displayed at the bottom of the page.

Note: Changes made to the settings in the QMC will override the settings in the Settings.ini file.
