Import app


Import app


Qlik Sense performs the following procedure:

  1. A request is sent to the Qlik Sense Repository Service (QRS).
  2. If you have access to the Qlik Sense system where the app was created, the following happens:
    1. The QRS stores metadata in the repository database.
    2. The QRS contacts the Qlik Sense Engine Service (QES).
    3. The app is migrated (if necessary).
  3. The QES imports the app (including objects) and persists it.


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

  • <MachineName>_AuditActivity_Repository.txt
  • <MachineName>_AuditActivity_Engine.txt

Proceed as follows:
