Using apps in managed spaces

Managed spaces share secure apps with a limited group of viewers. Apps are published to managed spaces from personal or shared spaces.

Note: Managed spaces are not available with Qlik Sense Business.

Apps published to managed spaces maintain a parent-child relationship with the original app. Updates to the parent app can be republished to child apps. Parent apps can be moved between spaces without breaking the relationship. If the parent app is deleted, the app in the managed space will become an orphan and cannot be republished.

Managed space members are limited in how they can add content or change the data model of an app. For an explanation of managed space permissions, see Data sources for apps in managed spaces.

Limitations

Managed spaces have the following limitations:

  • You cannot publish on-demand apps to a managed space.
  • You cannot change the data model of a published app in a managed space.

  • You cannot download apps from or upload apps to a managed space.
  • You cannot move an app in a managed space.
