JWT authentication

Introduction

Qalyptus will use the JWT authentication to allow you to embed your Qlik Sense apps in Qalyptus HUB and create reports. Your Qlik Sense apps and reports will be in the same place and organized as you wish in folders and subfolders.

JWT authorization capabilities in Qlik Cloud are available on an "as requested" basis for embedded analytics use cases on Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS tenants only. If it is not yet activated (check in Identity Providers), contact your Qlik account manager explaining that you need to activate the JWT capability to allow embedded analytics and reporting.
