You can export apps. For example, you might want to use the app in a local version of Qlik Sense, or export the app to another Qlik Sense site. For an unpublished app, all content is exported. For a published app, only published and approved content that is part of the .qvf file is included in the export. The exported app is saved in the default download folder of your web browser.
When you export an app, you can optionally export the app without any data. When importing an app without data, you can replace apps with sheets and stories without impacting the data or data model.
Do the following:
Open the QMC: https://<QPS server name>/qmc
Select Apps on the QMC start page or from the StartS drop-down menu to display the overview.
Select the app that you want to export.
Click More actions in the action bar.
A pop-up menu opens.
- Click Export.
- To export the app without data, clear Export app with data.
The Ongoing transports dialog opens. Any other transports initiated by you are also displayed in the dialog.There is a maximum limit for simultaneous transports, and if the maximum is reached an error message is displayed.
A spinner is displayed during the file export. When the file export is complete, m is displayed and the browser automatically starts to download the app to the default download folder of your web browser.Warning: Do not close or log out from the QMC before the export and the download has finished – if you do the export cannot be completed and the app (qvf file) is lost.
Click E to cancel the export.
è and Aborted are displayed and the export stops.
Click OK to remove a failed item è.
The item is removed from the Ongoing transports dialog.
When the export and file download have finished, m is displayed. When all your transports have finished successfully, the Ongoing transports dialog closes. If there are any failed transports, the dialog is displayed until the overview page is refreshed.
Moving apps with ODBC data connections
When you move an app between Qlik Sense sites or Qlik Sense Desktop installations, data connections are not included. If the app contains ODBC data connections, you must create new connections, or use the ones that already exist at the new site. You also need to make sure that the related ODBC data sources exist on the new deployment. The ODBC data sources need to be named and configured identically, and point to the same databases or files.
