Duplicating apps

When you duplicate an app, the duplicate includes all the content that you have reading rights to. For published apps, only published and approved content that is part of the .qvf file will be included in the duplicate.

Do the following:

  1. Open the QMC: https://<QPS server name>/qmc

  2. Select Apps on the QMC start page or from the Start Arrow down drop-down menu to display the overview.

  3. Select the app that you want to duplicate.

    Information noteWhen duplicating an app, the folder that stores app related content not included in the .qvf file, such as images, is also duplicated. The path to the folder is %ProgramData%\Qlik\Sense\Repository\AppContent\<App ID>. Each app has its own app content folder, with the app ID as the folder name.
  4. Click More actions in the action bar and select Duplicate in the pop-up menu.

Successfully duplicated app is displayed and a duplicate of the app is added in the Apps overview table.

Information noteYou can duplicate an app if you have create and read access to the app and read access to the Apps section in the QMC. However, for security reasons, the script will only be duplicated if you also have read rights to the script. Access to the script enables editing or removal of section access, and, as a consequence, a possibility to load data that should not be accessible.
