Distribution policies

To be able to distribute apps from Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows to Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS, you must define distribution policies. Distribution policies are used to determine whether a published app can be distributed to one or more of the deployments in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS. If a published app is not covered by a distribution policy it will not be distributed.

The Distribution policies overview lists all the available distribution policies.

Information noteDistribution policies is a subsection of Cloud distribution and only available if you have a license with multi-cloud.

The following table presents the available fields and buttons. By default, only some of the fields are displayed. You can use the column selector (Table) to add fields.

Tip noteYou can adjust the column width by dragging the header border.
