The cloud hub

Depending on your Qlik Sense Enterprise deployment, you may arrive at a cloud hub when you start Qlik Sense. In the cloud hub, you can create, share, and interact with apps.

The cloud hub is divided into three sections:

  • Home
  • Explore
  • Your profile

Home

When you log into the cloud hub, you will start in Home. Home displays recently added apps you have access to, your favorite apps, and your recently added collections.

Explore

In Explore, you can view the apps and spaces to which you have access. You can also create new apps and spaces. For more information, see Creating apps in the cloud hub. By default, Explore displays all apps from the spaces to which you have access. You can select individual spaces from the spaces drop-down to view apps from that space. You can also view QlikView document links that have been published to the cloud hub.

You can view apps in either a tile view or list view. You can also filter apps by tag. When filtering apps by tag, you will only see the tags that contain at least one app to which you have access.

Apps can be sorted by alphabetically, by creation date, or by modification date. You can filter apps by apps you own or apps others own.

Apps

You can add apps to the cloud hub in both Explore and from Your content in your profile. You can create new apps, duplicate existing apps, or upload apps. You can upload apps exported from the cloud hub or other versions of Qlik Sense. You can keep your apps private or you can share them with other cloud hub members. To learn more about Qlik Sense apps, see Creating apps .

Each app in the cloud hub displays the app name, description, owner, and the modification date. You can click on the app to open it. You can click More to view more options for the app including:

  • Viewing app details

    Details provides an overview of app information. It shows the dates of app creation, last modification, and the last reload. Details also shows the tags applied to the app and who can access the app. You can also view the reload history for an app from Details.

  • Sharing the app

    You can share the app with all other members of the cloud hub. Sharing grants read access to your app to other members of the cloud hub.

Spaces

Spaces are areas in the cloud hub where apps are stored. Spaces can be personal or shared.

All users have a personal space where apps they create are stored by default. Personal spaces are private, but apps from the personal space can be shared with other cloud hub members. For information about sharing apps from a personal space, see Sharing apps in the cloud hub.

Users with a professional license can create shared spaces. Shared spaces are private when first created. Shared spaces allow collaborative development of apps. Spaces also limit access to apps in the space. Access to apps in the space is granted by adding members to the space.

You can select spaces to which you have access to from the drop-down in Explore. You can also create new spaces from the spaces drop-down.

For more information, see Working in shared spaces.

Organizing apps in the cloud hub

You can organize apps using tags, private collections, and favorites.

You can add tags to your apps to group them with related apps. Apps can be tagged during creation or by editing the app. You can only tag your own apps or apps in a space in which you have edit permission. Tags are shared in the cloud hub, but you can only view your own tags and tags assigned to apps that have been shared with you.

You can organize apps with private collections. Collections enable you to group both your own apps as well as those of other cloud hub members. Private collections are not shared with other cloud hub members. To add an app to a private collection, click the plus icon on the app. In the window that opens, you can also remove the app from a collection, or create a new collection.

You can also favorite apps. To favorite an app, click the star icon on the app. To view your favorites, click your profile icon, and then select Favorites.
