Installation Preparation


Prior to installation, you must place the following files on the machine you intend to install the Quill API.

  • 1) Tarball containing the installer; NS will provide this prior to installation
  • 2) Trusted SSL certificate in either .crt or .pem format (Tableau requires this SSL certificate to be issued by a central Certificate Authority - i.e. no self-signed certs)
  • 3) Trusted SSL private key

 

In addition, prior to installation, you must obtain the following information, which will be inserted into the config.yml file during installation (see Installation Steps):

 

  • 4) viz_url: Fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) of the machine where Quill Extension is installed
  • 5) license_key: NS will provide this prior to installation
  • 6) license_secret_key: NS will provide this prior to installation
  • 7) license_id: NS will provide this prior to installation
  • 8) ssl_cert_path: Absolute file path (as opposed to relative file path) to the SSL certificate on the Quill Extension machine
  • 9) ssl_key_path: Absolute file path (as opposed to relative file path) to the SSL private key on the Quill Extension machine

 

For Qlik Extension installs only, there are a few additional parameters to add:

  • 10) qlik_admin_user: user with admin access to QlikSense, used for maintaining license compliance (e.g. "DOMAIN\\username")
  • 11) qlik_hostname: URL(s) for the QlikSense hub in which the extension will be installed
  • 12) qmc_hostname: hostname of your Qlik Management Console
  • 13) cors_origins: if you want to create Mashups with the Extension, specify the request origin(s) so the Extension can run in a Mashup

 

When you have obtained the information specified above and have placed the files on your machine, you are ready to complete the Installation Steps next.
