Anonymized Data Upload Instructions for Hosted PoC

This article describes how to prepare for a Metric Insights Hosted PoC if you also use Qlik Sense.

What to Expect in our Proof of Concept (PoC)

1. Prepare the Qlik Sense QVF file

Export the application QVF file:

  1. Go to management console https://<servername>/qmc/
  2. Select Apps in the menu on the left
  3. Select app and more actions, export

If your application has Section Access in the data load script, duplicate your application and remove or comment out the Section Access code before exporting.

2. Upload the QVW to Metric Insights

1.  Go to: ftp bob.metricinsights.com

2.  Provide the username and password you've been supplied with

3.   Open the "upload" directory. This is the only directory you’re allowed to upload to on the ftp site:

cd upload 

4. Change the working directory:

lcd /local/directory

5.  Store a file by executing this command:

put local_file

On the receiving end, files go here: /var/ftp/demo/upload/

[OPTION 1] Command line (Mac Terminal, Windows PuTTY)

5.  Сlick Quickconnect at the top right corner of the screen (see screen below)

6. Once the connection is established, you should see a directory tree on the right-hand side that includes the 'upload' directory. Double-click it to open it. Then just drag your file from the left-hand side to the upload directory

OPTION 3 - Dropbox

We can also share a Dropbox folder for you to upload the QVW file.
