Unpublish app


Qlik Sense performs the following procedure:

  1. Check if the app is a session app. If so, publishing is not supported. A session app only exists in the Qlik Sense Engine Service (QES) memory and is not linked to any file.
  2. Save the object in the repository database.
  3. Request the Qlik Sense Repository Service (QRS) to unpublish the app.


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

  • <MachineName>_AuditActivity_Engine.txt


Access denied

Access denied error
Description Command=Unpublish app;Result=8;ResultText=Error: Access Denied
Message Could not save objects
Action Check if the disk is write-protected as the publish operation could not flush the objects needed before unpublishing the app.

REST connection failure

REST connection failure error
Description Command=Unpublish app;Result=18;ResultText=Error: Rest connection failed
Message REST client response error
Action As there is no response from the QRS, check if it has stopped running or if it cannot process requests.
