Navigation API

Note: If you are using Qlik Sense Business or Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS, see the API documentation at the Qlik (Developer Portal).

This API is reliable and breaking changes are unlikely.


The Navigation API allows you to navigate within a Qlik Sense app, and is meant to be used in visualization extensions, and will not work in Mashup scenarios.
