Publishing to Qlik Sense Enterprise streams

The Qlik Sense Enterprise administrator publishes apps to a stream from the Qlik Management Console. The sheets and stories in the app are then available to the users that have access to the stream. You can publish your own apps from the hub, to a stream which you have publish access to. You can also move your published apps between streams from the hub.

An app that has been published to a stream is locked, although the owner of a published app can edit the thumbnail, app name, and the description of their published app. Others can interact with the visualizations and analyze the data. However, no one can edit the base sheets and base stories that were published with the app. If you have the correct access rights, you can add your private sheets and stories to a published app.

If you own a published app, you can add your private sheets and stories to a published app, and approve your own and community sheets for inclusion in the base sheets of an app. You cannot edit the base sheets and base stories of the app, but you can make them private sheets and stories if you want to edit them.

If a published app needs to be changed, it can be republished, updating the published app with content from a duplicate.

Note: This functionality is not available in Kubernetes.

Streams

The content in the hub is organized in streams. A stream is a collection of apps that a group of users has specific access to. The users of the stream can have different access rights. Some users might only be able to read the content in the stream, while others might have the rights to publish their content to the stream.

By default, Qlik Sense includes a stream called Everyone, which all users have both read and publish rights to.

All users have their own spaces, Work and Published, for the content they own. Work contains personal unpublished apps. Published contains links to your published apps. These links enable you to keep track of your published work and perform tasks such as moving or duplicating a published app more easily.

The read and publish rights on the streams are defined in the Qlik Management Console.

You can use a duplicate of a published app to use as a template for a new one.

You can move your own apps from the hub between streams to which you have publish access.

Sheets and stories

You can create private sheets and stories as a part of a published app. These sheets and stories can be published as part of the app. Published sheets and stories can be added to base sheets of an app by the app owner. You can also remove base sheets and stories from your app and make them published sheets and stories.

When working with a published app, sheets and stories are organized in sections in the app overview depending on their status.

Sheet view sections
Section Description
Base sheets / Base stories Sheets and stories that were included in the app when it was publishedor republished, or added to the base sheets and stories of the app after it was published.. All users of the app have access to these.
Community Sheets and stories that someone else has created and published to the app that you have access to. Sheets and stories in this section can be added to base sheets and stories.
Published by me Sheets and stories that you have created and then published so that all the users of the app can access them. The other users will find these in their Community section. Sheets in this section can be approved for inclusion in base sheets.
My sheets / My stories Sheets and stories that you have created but not published. No one else can see these.

Interacting with apps

The tasks that you can perform in an app depend on whether or not that app has been published.

  • Navigate between sheets, stories, and bookmarks.
  • Make and clear selections.
  • Apply/recall bookmarks.
