Apps can be added to the cloud hub by creating new apps, duplicating existing apps, or uploading exported apps.
Any cloud hub member with the professional license can create apps in the cloud hub.
Creating a new app
You can create apps by clicking Add new and then New analytics app. When you create a new app, you can specify the destination space of the app. By default, apps are added to current space.
You can create a new app directly from a dataset. From the Home tab, go to Your data, or from the Explore tab, navigate to the dataset in the Data tab.
Do the following:
- Select Open dataset on the dataset you want to create an app from. When the Details page opens, select Create app from data button in task bar. A modal appears with configurable descriptive fields for your app; enter Name and Description(optional) for your app, then Create.
Your new app will open to Insights view in a new browser tab.
You can duplicate any app you have access to by clicking on the app and selecting Duplicate. The duplicate can be modified: you can add different data or edit sheets.
Duplicating apps has several uses. For example, you can copy an app to use it as a template. You can also duplicate apps as a form of version control, and store older ones a space created for archival purposes.
Duplicated apps keep the original data sources and data. If you did not create the original data sources used in the app, you will have to recreate data sources in the app.
If you duplicate an app published to the cloud hub from Qlik Sense Enterprise, the data sources in the app may not be supported for apps in the cloud hub. You will not be able to reload data. You can change the data sources in a duplicated app, however.
You can upload an app you exported from the cloud hub or another Qlik Sense version into the cloud hub.
You can upload apps by clicking Add new, then Upload app, and then adding your app
After uploading the app, you need to add data sources to the uploaded app.
You can continue working on the app. If the app is ready, share the app with your cloud hub users, or move the app to a shared space.
Apps uploaded into the cloud hub must be from Qlik Sense 3.1 or later.
On-Demand apps are not supported for upload to the cloud hub.
The Qlik GeoAnalytics Connector is not supported in SaaS editions of Qlik Sense. If your uploaded app used the GeoAnalytics Connector, you can change your app load script to use Qlik Sense GeoOperations instead.
Preparing apps from other versions of Qlik Sense for upload
While the cloud hub supports uploading apps from other versions of Qlik Sense, there are limitations:
- Uploaded apps cannot exceed 1 GB in size.
Uploaded apps include data already loaded into the app, but the data sources are removed. If you want to reload attached files and data connections, you will need to re-add them. Ensure you have the information to add the connections to your app again.
- Uploaded apps do not include any community or private sheets. You need to approve all sheets and stories you want to keep as base sheets and stories before you export the app.
Adding data and content to apps in cloud hub
Once you create your new app, you need to add data.
After you add data, you can create sheets, stories, and visualizations. Sheets, stories, and bookmarks in your app are private until you make them public.
For more information on creating sheets and visualizations, see: Creating and editing visualizations.
