Uploading apps

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 .qvf file to Upload apps. You can upload multiple apps at once. App properties, such as custom attributes, are included when an app is uploaded.

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.

Information note

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.

Information noteQlik Sense SaaS supports GeoAnalytics extensions in uploaded apps. Support for GeoAnalytics extensions will end in March 2023. To continue using these apps in Qlik Sense SaaS, it is recommended that you use map charts.

Information note

The Qlik GeoAnalytics Connector is not supported in Qlik Sense SaaS (including Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS - Government (US)). If your uploaded app used the GeoAnalytics Connector, you can change your app load script to use Qlik Sense GeoOperations instead.

Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS Government noteQlik Sense Enterprise SaaS - Government (US) users cannot import apps exported from QlikView.

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. If you are licensed for expanded apps, you can upload apps up to 2 GB in size. If you are licensed for dedicated capacity, you can upload apps up to 10 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.
