This is an experimental project intended to explore creation of a "community contributed" Qlik Server Side Extension (SSE). The SSE feature in Qlik is very useful, but it's possible that over time customers may end up running and managing a number of different SSE tasks. This projects aims to explore if a repository of common SSE functions can be developed and deployed.
Contains functions to be added to the server. Each function is written as an individual .js files. Subdirectories are allowed.
The functions must export the following symbols:
functionDefinitionthe function that will be used as the first parameter to server.addFunction(fn, config).
functionConfigan object that that will be used as the second parameter to server.addFunction(fn, config).
Functions should catch any potential errors. An uncaught error may terminate the entire server task.
Read more about writing functions in the qlik-sse doc
Running the Server
Configure the SSE in your Qlik installation by following these instructions
node index.js [options]
--allowScript=trueenable inline script execution.
--port nspecify server port. Default is 50051.
If you wish to use functions that send mail, you must configure the nodemailer properties.
- Rename or copy /lib/mail/sample-mailOptions.js to mailOptions.js.
- In mailOptions.js, configure SMTP host, port and authentication and other properties as required.
Generated documenation of individual functions may be found here
Contributions are welcome. Please fork the project and submit a PR.
I'm particularly looking for contributions of:
- New functions
- Convenience classes or restructing ideas that make implementing new function easier or more robust.
