Qlik Sense uses certificates for authentication. A certificate provides trust between nodes within a Qlik Sense site. The certificates are used within a Qlik Sense site to authenticate communication between services that reside on multiple nodes.
If you want to add a third-party tool to your Qlik Sense installation, you need to export the certificates.
You can use the exported certificates to do the following:
- Use an external authentication module.
- Move the certificates manually to a node, instead of using the QMC functionality when creating a new node.
