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.
