Management console

The management console is used for managing licenses, user assignments, manage spaces, themes, and extensions in SaaS editions of Qlik Sense. The management console should not be confused with the Qlik Management Console (QMC), which is used for managing Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows. Only users with Tenant Admin role have access to the management console.

The management console user interface is made up of four conceptual sections, each consisting of a number of different pages:

  • Governance: manage users, licenses, spaces, schedules, events and links
  • Content: manage custom content, such as themes and extensions
  • Integration: manage security aspects for integration
  • Configuration: enable feature settings and configure identity providers

Accessing the management console

You access the management console by adding /console to your tenant address: https://<your tenant address>/console, or by using the navigation link Administration under user profile in the hub.

Users

The users page displays all the users that have logged into the tenant. If a user has a certain role (tenant admin), it is displayed in the roles field.

Spaces

The spaces page displays information of all the spaces created in the tenant as well as lets you create new spaces and edit existing ones.

Schedules

With scheduling, you can view and delete reload schedules for apps in your system. Schedules can only be created from the hub.

Generic links

If you have a multi-cloud deployment consisting of QlikView or Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows in combination with Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS or Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes, generic links offer an easy way to make on-premise apps available in the cloud.

API keys

An API key is a unique identifier used for authentication of a user, developer, or calling program to an API. API keys are often used for tracking and controlling how the interface is used, to prevent abuse of the API.

Content Security Policy

Content Security Policy (CSP) provides an extra layer of security that helps to detect and mitigate certain types of attacks, including Cross Site Scripting (XSS) and data injection attacks.

In Qlik Sense, CSP allows tenant admins to control resources an extension or a theme is allowed to load for a given page. With a few exceptions, policies mostly involve specifying server origins and script endpoints. If an extension or theme contain links to external resources, these must have its origins whitelisted in the Content Security Policy.

Web

You can create web integrations to add origins that are whitelisted to access the tenant. The web integration containing the whitelist is connected to an ID used in for example a mashup that is connecting to your tenant. When a request arrives, Qlik Sense confirms that the request derives from a whitelisted domain and then approves the request, else not.
