Document Extension – Close Document Session

Reading the forum, I noticed there’s a need for a document extension that allows you to terminate the session while using Qlikview ajax.

However, this extension never worked for me so I decided to do my own using the code used by Qlikview Ajax.

Download the document extension.

After downloading the extension, double click on it.

Session Recovery

Session Recovery

Today a business user asked me if he could save selections so when he opens a document, he can get his defaulted selections.

The first thing I thought was to use an onOpen trigger. To my surprise, onOpen triggers don’t work in Ajax. A weak point about this solution, is that I wanted to create a table with users and predefined selections and select these onOpen based on the user.

After thiking a little bit more (yes, it sometimes good to think), I remembered the “Recovery Session” feature in Qlikview Server.

This option allows users to close a document and save their selections. When they reopen the document, the session will be recovered and all
selections will remain.

This option can be found in QMc: System –> Setup –> Choose Qlikview Server –> Documents –> Check option “Allow Session Recovery”
