Publishing between Qlik Sense platforms

You cannot publish apps directly between some Qlik Sense platforms.

For example, you cannot publish an app from Qlik Sense Desktop to Qlik Sense Enterprise. Instead, you have to download a copy of the app from one platform, and then upload the copy to the other platform. You can then publish the app in the platform to which it is copied.

Note: To find out how data is shared between Qlik platforms, visit our General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance.
Note: You cannot publish apps in Qlik Sense Desktop.

When copying an app to another platform, consider the following:

  • You will have to recreate data connections on the destination platform.
  • Some functionality may not be supported on the destination platform.
  • You need the appropriate privileges to perform certain actions. For example, only the Qlik Sense Enterprise administrator can import or export apps from the Qlik Management Console.

In Qlik Sense Enterprise, apps can be imported and exported in the QMC.

In SaaS editions of Qlik Sense, apps can be imported and exported in the hub. To export, click More on an app. To import, click Add new and then click Upload app.

In Qlik Sense Desktop, apps can be copied to or from this location: C:\Users\username\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps
