Configuring extraction of app names from Qlik Sense
These settings are optional.
If you don’t do anything app name extraction is turned on by default.
Qlik Sense’s APIs return all its app metrics relative to an app ID, not the app name.
This is fine as the ID is guaranteed to be unique, but the downside is that the ID doesn’t tell us humans much.
Butler SOS therefore provides an app ID-to-app name mapping with a configurable update interval.
Butler-SOS.appNames section of the config file controls if this mapping should be done at all, how often and which Sense server should be used to get it.
A more comprehensive description of Butler SOS’ strategy for getting correct names of Sense apps is available in the Concepts section.
Settings in main config file
# Extract app names
enableAppNameExtract: true # Extract app names in addition to app IDs (tue/false)?
extractInterval: 60000 # How often (milliseconds) should app names be extracted?
hostIP: <IP or FQDN> # What Sense server should be queried for app names?
anonTelemetry to true enables telemetry, setting it to false disables telemetry.
