Managing spaces


Managing spaces

Spaces are managed in the Management Console on the Spaces page.

The Spaces page lists space name, space type, space owner, description of the space, and the space creation date. Use this page for deleting a space, changing the owner, editing the space, and creating a new space.

The following are the space types:

  • Personal spaces: In personal spaces, only the owner can edit apps. You cannot co-develop apps in personal spaces. You can share apps outside your space, but only for viewing.
  • Shared spaces: Shared spaces allow you to co-develop apps with a closed group of users. The actions that you can perform with an app in a space are determined by permissions and your license. When enabled by a tenant administrator, users with a professional license can create shared spaces in the hub, and then add members and assign them permissions in the space. Tenant and analytics administrators, or users with the shared space creator role can also create shared spaces.
  • Managed spaces: Managed spaces enable governed access to apps. Managed spaces are restricted to members. Permissions are assigned to members when they are added to a managed space. Permissions define what members can access in a space. Apps that you develop in a personal or shared space can be published to a managed space. Only space owners and target app consumers can open apps in a managed space. Other users can open apps if they have viewing permissions. Only tenant and analytic administrators, or users with the managed space creator role can create managed spaces.
  • Data spaces: Designated spaces to create, manage, and share data assets. To create a data space, you must be a tenant admin or a data admin, or you must have a special role that lets you create data spaces. The user who creates the data space is the owner of the data space. The owner can add other users to join the space and assign them roles inside the data space. The space roles determine what permissions each member has inside the space and whether they can edit, add, and consume data assets from the data space. Data spaces are managed from the Data home, but members of the data space with the required roles can browse the data space and consume certain data assets from the Analytics home.

Expanded apps and dedicated capacity

With expanded apps and dedicated capacity you can work with larger apps. You can assign expanded apps or dedicated capacity to spaces when you create or edit spaces.

Information noteExpanded apps and dedicated capacity are not standard features in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS. If you want to purchase expanded apps or dedicated capacity, contact Qlik Sales.

Assigning expanded apps or dedicated capacity to a space

Do the following:

  1. In the respective windows for creating a new space and editing an existing one, select Expanded apps or Dedicated capacity.

    When you hover over the info sign, you see the names of the engines, those for general purposes and those for reloads. However, if it is the first time engines are provisioned, the information will be 'No engines'.

  2. Click Create/Save.
Information noteNote that even if you can see the names of the engines, they are not immediately available for use. Provisioning of engines may take a couple of minutes. To test whether the engines have been activated, you can upload an app and try to open it. If the app is opened, activation is completed.

In a similar manner to when you activate expanded apps or dedicated capacity, deactivation will take time before the switch from the dedicated engines to others is completed. Started sessions are retained to avoid unexpected closures. It is required that apps are closed on all engines for the switch to be completed.
