Proxies

The Qlik Sense Proxy Service (QPS) manages the Qlik Sense authentication, session handling, and load balancing.

The Proxies overview lists all the available proxies. The following table presents the available fields and buttons. By default, only some of the fields are displayed. You can use the column selector (') to add fields.

Tip: You can adjust the column width by dragging the header border.
Node The name of the proxy node.
Status

One of the following statuses is displayed:

  • Running

    The service is running as per normal.

  • Stopped

    The service has stopped.

  • Disabled

    The service has been disabled.

Tip: Click ] in the Status column for more detailed information on the status.

Checking the status of Qlik Sense services.

Tags The tags that are connected to the proxy.
Service listen port HTTPS (default)

The secure listen port for the proxy, which by default manages all Qlik Sense communication.

Note: Make sure that port 443 is available for the Qlik Sense Proxy Service (QPS) to use because the port is sometimes used by other software, for example, web servers.
Allow HTTP

Status values: Yes or No.

Yes: Unencrypted communication is allowed. This means that both https (secure communication) and (http) unencrypted communication is allowed.

Service listen port HTTP

The unencrypted listen port, used when HTTP connection is allowed.

Authentication listen port

The listen port for the internal authentication module.

Note: When editing this port as a user without admin privileges, you need to run the repository in bootstrap mode before the changes take effect. See: Services
Kerberos authentication

Status values: Yes or No.

Yes: Kerberos authentication is enabled.

REST API listen port

The listen port for the proxy API.

Note: When editing this port as a user without admin privileges, you need to run the repository in bootstrap mode before the changes take effect. See: Services
SSL browser certificate thumbprint

The thumbprint of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate that handles the encryption of traffic from the browser to the proxy. When editing a proxy certificate and the Qlik Sense services run with an account without administrator privileges (see Services), you need to configure the private key permissions for the certificate, (see Changing to a signed server proxy certificate).

Keep-alive timeout (seconds)

The maximum timeout period for a single HTTP/HTTPS request before closing the connection. Protection against denial-of-service attacks. This means that if an ongoing request exceeds this period, Qlik Sense proxy will close the connection. Increase this value if your users work over slow connections and experience closed connections.

Max header size (bytes) The maximum total header size.
Max header lines The maximum number of lines in the header.
