Moving an app from a Qlik Sense Desktop installation

When you save an app that you have created in Qlik Sense Desktop, the images included in the app are bundled together with the rest of the contents of the app. This makes it easier to share an app with another person, or to move the app to another computer.

You can move an app that you have created in Qlik Sense Desktop, including its images, to another computer with Qlik Sense Desktop, for example by e-mailing the app.

Moving an app created in your current installation of Qlik Sense Desktop

If the app is created in your current installation of Qlik Sense Desktop, the images in the app are automatically bundled together with the rest of the contents of the app.

Do the following:

  1. Create an app using Qlik Sense Desktop.
  2. Save the app.
  3. Locate the app on your hard drive. The default location is <user>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps.
  4. Copy the app to, for example, a portable device.
  5. Paste the app in the Apps folder on another computer with Qlik Sense Desktop.

The app is now available from the hub.

Moving an app created in an older installation of Qlik Sense Desktop

If your app was created in an older version of Qlik Sense Desktop, prior to version 2.0, the images in the app are not bundled together with the rest of the contents of the app. You must open and save the app before the app is moved.

Do the following:

  1. Open the app using the new version of Qlik Sense Desktop.
  2. Make a change in the app.
  3. Save the app.

    Now the images included in the app are bundled together with the rest of the contents of the app.

  4. Locate the app on your hard drive. The default location is <user>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps.
  5. Copy the app to, for example, a portable device.
  6. Paste the app in the Apps folder on another computer with Qlik Sense Desktop.

The app is now available from the hub.

Moving an app to another Qlik Sense platform

You can move an app created in Qlik Sense Desktop to a different Qlik Sense environment, for example Qlik Sense Enterprise. To move the app you will have to copy it to your computer, and then upload the app to the Qlik Sense environment of your choosing.

The app will be available from the hub.

For more information on how to move apps between Qlik Sense platforms see Publishing between Qlik Sense platforms.

Note:

If you move a Qlik Sense Desktop app to a Qlik Sense environment, you need to handle the images separately. The same applies when moving an app that was created using Qlik Sense.
