Deploying Qlik NPrinting™

There are three components for implementing Qlik NPrinting™:

Qlik NPrinting™ Server

 

The Qlik NPrinting™ Server is the central node in your reporting system. It is composed of the scheduler, the web engine, and the repository. In addition to these functions, you use the server to manage user administration and security, and all other server-side tasks. It also coordinates multiple reporting engines installed on different nodes to distribute the workload and to create a high availability environment.

Qlik NPrinting™ Engine

The Qlik NPrinting™ Engine creates reports based on information from scheduler. At least one engine must be installed. You can install additional engines on other computers to increase the workload capacity and the availability of your reporting system.

Qlik NPrinting™ Designer

The Qlik NPrinting™ Designer is Windows-based software that is installed only on the computers of developers who need to author template based reports. The designer is used to create and modify templates. You can launch it only from the Qlik NPrinting™ web interface..
