Qlik Sense Applications

In this section, you configure and manage the synchronization of the Qlik Sense applications with Qalyptus Hub. This will allow users to find in the same place (Qalyptus HUB) their Qlik Applications, reports, and other resources.

As in Qlik Sense Hub, a user will see only the applications to which he is entitled.

At the end of the synchronization process, the new applications will appear, the existing apps will be updated, and the applications deleted in Qlik Sense will be removed.

You can synchronize a specific application. This will only sync metadata for that app.

Available configurations for a Qlik Sense application

For a better user experience, you can configure each Qlik Sense application to appear in the desired way in Qalyptus HUB.

  • You can choose in which folder or subfolder the application will be located
  • If you manage different Organizations, you can choose an organization for the app. Only the members of the organization can see the application (a member must also be authorized in Qlik Sense)
  • Create a Mashup. You can easily create a custom mashup and linked it to the app. Users will be able to open the app as a standard Qlik Sense app or as a mashup
  • Choose if you want to allow to open the app as a standard app, like a mashup, or both
  • Choose what will happen when the user clicks on the app’s Thumbnail: Open the app as a standard app or as a mashup. This option depends on the choice of the previous option.
