App contents

A Qlik Sense app is a task-specific, purpose-built application. The user who creates an app is automatically designated as the owner of the app. An app can be reused, modified, and shared with others.

When importing an app to a server, or exporting an app from a server, related content that is not stored in the .qvf file, such as images, is also moved. The related content is stored in a separate folder: %ProgramData%\Qlik\Sense\Repository\AppContent\<App ID>. Each app has its own app content folder, with the app ID as the folder name.

Note: Content that is uploaded to the AppContent folder is only available for that specific app. If you want content to be available for other apps, use the Content libraries.
