Connecting to Qlik Sense from the Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed app

When you install and launch the Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed app for the first time you are prompted to select either the Qlik Sense demo server or a Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows server to connect to.

The Qlik Sense demo server is hosted by Qlik, and allows you to view Qlik Sense apps and mashups, and download apps. You can connect to the Qlik Sense demo server without Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows account credentials.

Note: You must connect to the Qlik Sense demo server at least once while online before you can access content while offline.

To connect to a Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows server, you must log in with your Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows account credentials. Before you can connect to a Qlik Sense server and log in with your Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows account credentials from the Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed app you will need to authenticate your credentials against the Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows server.

The Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows authentication link must be generated by your administrator in the Qlik Management Console. Your Qlik Sense administrator will provide you with information about how you can receive the link using one of the following methods:

  • Retrieving the authentication link from your Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows hub
  • Receiving the authentication link from your administrator
Note: If your Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed app is deployed and managed through an EMM, the hub list may already be populated for you, in which case you do not need to complete this procedure.
Note: To connect to a Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows deployment from Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed, users must be allocated the appropriate access type. Users who have been allocated User access, or a Professional or Analyzer access license, can connect. Users with Analyzer capacity licenses or login access cannot. Anonymous access is not allowed.

Retrieving an authentication link from the Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows hub

  1. Open your mobile browser and enter the URL for your Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows hub.
  2. Click ... in the top toolbar of the hub, and then click Client authentication.
  3. A dialog box opens asking you to confirm that you want to open the authentication link using the Qlik Sense. Click Open to confirm.
  4. The Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed app opens and the server is added to the welcome page.
