Import app


Qlik Sense performs the following procedure:

  1. Check if the app can be migrated to the current version of Qlik Sense (if needed).
  2. Open a copy of the app to import.
  3. Remove unwanted objects (such as connections) from the copy.
  4. Request the Qlik Sense Repository Service (QRS) to save the app.


In case of success, log entries are written in the following files throughout the procedure:

  • <MachineName>_AuditActivity_Engine.txt
