Using the Management Console
The Management Console is used for managing subscriptions, users, spaces, themes, and extensions in Qlik Cloud.
Only users with an administrator role (tenant admin, analytics admin, or data admin) have access to the Management Console. You must be a tenant administrator to access some areas, such as user management and system security.
Opening the Management Console
To open the Management Console, go to the launcher menu , and then select Management Console. You can also add /console to your tenant address: https://<your tenant address>/console.
You start out in Home, which provides you with an overview of the resource consumption in the tenant. You can monitor the usage of various resources such as data capacity, generated reports, or automation runs. Home also lists the tenant's capabilities and features. For more information, see Monitoring resource consumption.
The Management Console is organized into four sections: Governance, Content, Integration, and Configuration.
This section lets you manage users, alerts, subscriptions, licenses, spaces, schedules, events, and links.
The users page displays all the users that have logged into the tenant. If a user has a certain role, it is displayed in the roles field.

The spaces page displays information of all the spaces created in the tenant as well as lets you create new spaces and edit existing ones.
See also: Managing spaces
The Alerts page displays all alerts that have been created in the tenant. A tenant or analytics admin can delete alerts and turn scheduled evaluations on or off.

Subscriptions (to reports)
Tenant or analytics admins can manage users’ report subscriptions.

With scheduling, you can view and delete reload schedules for apps in your system. Schedules can only be created from the hub.

On the events page, you can follow up on events in your system and get information about the event type and the user who initiated the event.

This section lets you manage custom content, such as apps, automations, generic links, themes and extensions.
The apps page lets you manage all apps in the tenant.

The Data content page lets you manage data connections in the tenant.

If you have a multi-cloud deployment consisting of QlikView or Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows in combination with Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS, generic links offer an easy way to make on-premises apps available in the cloud.

The extensions page lets you manage all the extensions in the tenant, as well as uploading new ones.

This section lets you manage security aspects for integration.
An API key is a unique identifier used for authentication of a user, developer, or calling program to an API. API keys are often used for tracking and controlling how the interface is used, to prevent abuse of the API.

Content Security Policy
Content Security Policy (CSP) provides an extra layer of security that helps to detect and mitigate certain types of attacks, including Cross Site Scripting (XSS) and data injection attacks.
In Qlik Sense, CSP allows tenant admins to control resources an extension or a theme is allowed to load for a given page. With a few exceptions, policies mostly involve specifying server origins and script endpoints. If an extension or theme contain links to external resources, these must have its origins allowlisted in the Content Security Policy.

You can create web integrations to add origins that are allowlisted to access the tenant. The web integration containing the allow list is connected to an ID used in for example a mashup that is connecting to your tenant. When a request arrives, Qlik Sense confirms that the request derives from an allowlisted domain and then approves the request, else not.

A webhook is an automated message that is sent between applications, often resulting from an event trigger. A webhook message is essentially a user-defined HTTP callback request that contains information about a system event and information about what type of response is needed. For example, you can create a webhook that triggers a Qlik Sense app to reload anytime new data is uploaded, or one that sends an email to a group of users whenever a new user is added to your Qlik Sense tenant.

This section lets you enable feature setting and configure identity providers.
The settings page lets you manage the following sections:
- Tenant, see Configuring a tenant alias
- Notes, see Managing Notes
- On-demand data, see Enabling on-demand app generation
Groups, see Identity providersInformation noteNot available in Qlik Sense Business.
- API keys, see Enabling API keys in the tenant

An identity provider (IdP) manages identity information for users and provides authentication services. With Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS, you have the option to use an already existing IdP when setting up your deployment. You can also choose to use Qlik Account. Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS supports any IdP vendor compatible with the OpenID Connect standard.
Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS customers are able to use their own IdP with their cloud tenant. To support the use of your own IdP, your license includes IdP. With this license there is an Identity provider section in the Management Console, under Configuration.
If you do not have an IdP, you can instead use the invite option that exists in the Users section.

Forts is a Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS solution where you can keep your data where it currently is, on-premises, in your private data center, or in a public cloud, while still benefiting from Qlik's cloud.
