Creating links to Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed app content

You can create mobile app links to Qlik Sense apps and sheets. You can also choose which selection to use, either explicitly or using a bookmark.

Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed app links use the URL scheme qliksenselink, while a Qlik Sense Enterprise link starts with https. The easiest way to create a mobile app link to an app is to:

  1. Open the app in your browser.
  2. Copy the URL.

    Example:  

    https://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc

  3. Replace https in the URL with qliksenselink.

    Example:  

    qliksenselink://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc

You can now use the modified URL on your mobile device to access the linked app in the Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed app.

Creating mobile app links to sheets

You can link to a specific sheet in an app in the same way, by replacing https in the URL with qliksenselink.

Example:  

qliksenselink://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc/sheet/7300b241-f221-43db-bb8b-8c8cc1887531/state/analysis

This would open the sheet with default selections. You can also choose to open the sheet with a specific set of selections or a bookmark.

Linking to specific selections

You can link to a set of selections by adding a selection definition at the end of the URL. You can add multiple selection definitions.

Syntax: select/{field}/{[value1;value2]}

Example: Opening the sheet with the value red selected in the color field

qliksenselink://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc/sheet/7300b241-f221-43db-bb8b-8c8cc1887531/state/analysis/select/color/red

Example: Opening the sheet with the values red and blue selected in the color field

qliksenselink://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc/sheet/7300b241-f221-43db-bb8b-8c8cc1887531/state/analysis/select/color/red;blue

Example: Opening the sheet with the value red selected in the color field, and the value L selected in the size field

qliksenselink://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc/sheet/7300b241-f221-43db-bb8b-8c8cc1887531/state/analysis/select/color/red/select/size/L

Linking to bookmarks

You can link to a bookmark that is defined in the app by referring to the bookmark id. The bookmark id can be obtained by using the Single configurator that comes with Dev Hub.

Syntax: bookmark/{bookmarkid}

Example: Opening the sheet with selections according to a bookmark with id 860f2e77-2cdc-44f2-aa19-58d46f2f69b0

qliksenselink://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc/sheet/7300b241-f221-43db-bb8b-8c8cc1887531/state/analysis/bookmark/860f2e77-2cdc-44f2-aa19-58d46f2f69b0

If the bookmark points to another sheet than the one you defined in the URL, you will automatically be redirected to the correct sheet.

Linking to sheets with no selections

If you want to open the sheets with all selections cleared, you can add options/clearselections to the URL.

Example: Opening the sheet with no selections made

qliksenselink://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc/sheet/7300b241-f221-43db-bb8b-8c8cc1887531/state/analysis/options/clearselections

Error handling

Forcing the link to be opened in offline mode

The app will be opened in online mode by default. If it is not possible to open the app in online mode, the app is opened in offline mode if that is possible.

You can force the app to be opened in offline mode by adding the ?forceOpen=offline parameter to the end of the URL.

Example: Opening the app in offline mode

qliksenselink://qlik.com/sense/app/8f8ffa0e-3fde-48a5-a127-59645923a1fc?forceOpen=offline

Tip: It is also possible to force online mode with the query parameter ?forceOpen=online.

Account is not found

If Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed cannot match the link with a Qlik Sense account, an error message is displayed. You can try to open the app in the device browser, which should work if the link could not be matched with an account.

User is not logged in to the account

The user is prompted to login to the Qlik Sense account connected to the link if needed. If already logged in to another account, the user will be logged out from that account before logging in to the Qlik Sense account connected to the link.
