Creating connections

Before you can create report templates, you must first create source connections from Qlik NPrinting to QlikView documents or Qlik Sense apps. Each report, filter, and task is linked to one or more QlikView documents or Qlik Sense apps.

Connections must be added after the initial creation of a Qlik NPrinting app. You can add new connections, or modify existing connections for each Qlik NPrinting app. There is no limit to the number of connections you can add to an app.

Connections are to the Qlik NPrinting Engine, not to the Qlik NPrinting Server. In a production environment the Qlik NPrinting Engine and Qlik NPrinting Server are installed on separate computers. The firewall rules and DNS resolution must be configured on Qlik NPrinting Engine computers, not on the Qlik NPrinting Server.

Nota: This section describes how to connect specific QlikView documents or Qlik Sense apps to Qlik NPrinting. If you are installing Qlik NPrinting and trying to connect to a QlikView or Qlik Sense server see: Connecting Qlik NPrinting with QlikView and Connecting Qlik NPrinting with Qlik Sense.
