Managing generic links

If you are a tenant admin, you can create and edit generic links from the hub or the management console. The following procedures describe how to create, edit, and delete generic links in the management console. You can either create a single link or upload a CSV file with one or more links.

Note:

Qlik Sense only supports UTF-8 encoding for generic link CSV files.

In the Management console, generic links are administered on the Generic links page.

Generic links overview

If you have a multi-cloud deployment consisting of QlikView or Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows in combination with Qlik Cloud Services or Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes, generic links offer an easy way to make on-premise apps available in the cloud. A tenant admin can add generic links from the hub, and from the management console. The linked apps are presented in the same way as the native apps, but they are opened in their respective environments.

Currently, only app links can be uploaded, and a link can only be uploaded to one space. However, a space can have more than one link.

You can upload a CSV file to add several links at the same time.

The following properties are present:

Property Description
Name Name of the app.

This field is required when uploading a CSV file.

Type Type of app: QlikView, Qlik Sense, or Other.
