Qlik Sense Workbench requirements and assumptions

The following requirements and assumptions apply to Qlik Sense Workbench.

Qlik Sense Workbench assumptions

This help is not intended to explain JavaScript, but to introduce the Qlik Sense JavaScript APIs. Rudimentary concepts of JavaScript will not be covered as much as the basic functions necessary to get a basic extension up and running.

There is no separate installation package for Qlik Sense Workbench. The editors and the API libraries are provided with your default installation of Qlik Sense.

The following assumptions apply for building extensions:

  • The user has at least some experience in Qlik Sense app development.

  • The user has good knowledge of the JavaScript programming language.

  • The user has some knowledge of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

The following assumptions apply for building mashups:

  • The user has at least some experience in Qlik Sense app development, along with greater experience in web development (see below).

  • The user has good knowledge of the JavaScript programming language.

  • The user has good knowledge of the Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML).

  • The user has good knowledge of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

  • The user has some knowledge, not a must, of requireJS.

    Qlik Sense uses RequireJS for loading JavaScript modules, so the JavaScript needs to be created as a module and then included into your html file. For more information about require.js, refer to www.requirejs.org/.

Qlik Sense Workbench Limitations

A maximum number of 10,000 cells can be pulled down to an extension.
