Working with apps

Qlik NPrinting apps contain report templates, filters, and connections to Qlik Sense apps or QlikView documents.

This is different from Qlik Sense apps, which contain data, and use visualizations to explore that data.

Requirements

The Qlik NPrinting Engine configuration must be complete. See: Qlik NPrinting installation.

Testing

You can use our sample files to create your app. To download these files, see: Sample files.

Creating apps

Do the following:

  1. Log into the Qlik NPrinting web console.
  2. On the main menu, click the Apps drop-down, and click Apps.
  3. Click the Create app button.
    1. Enter a name for this new app.
    2. Ensure the Enabled check box is selected. Otherwise, your app will be ignored by the Qlik NPrinting Engine.
    3. Click Create.

You app has been created.
