When you’re troubleshooting or diving into logs, it’s useful to have a mapping of object types. The name of an object is defined by the developer of that object, so there tends to be little convention – other some basic syntax rules and that Qlik Sense only allows one instance of the name per site.
Knowing what each type means is useful when inventorying a site for upgrade or migration.
Following a system restart, an overnight shutdown or a system update, some Windows services don’t always come up successfully. This script runs via Windows Task Scheduler and accepts one or more service names.
If the service isn’t running, it attempts to start it – and produces a log file to capture the incident.
The main benefits of this script are that it requires a single row addition per log, with no manual increment of the version number, and the version control information can be surfaced by the engine either to the UI or via the APIs.
From Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows September 2019 (the option became configurable via the QMC in November 2019), users have the option of enabling one or both of QVD and QVF encryption – adding at-rest protection from people who shouldn’t have access to your valuable files. This is enabled server-wide and applies to all content on the environment.
The big issue that I see is that any security office is going to require that any and all encryption is enabled – without understanding the issues this could cause.
