The hub

Your administrator provides you with a web address to start Qlik Sense Enterprise. When you start Qlik Sense, you arrive at the hub. The hub is where you find all the apps that you have access rights to use. If the hub has been disabled by your administrator, you arrive at the app overview when Qlik Sense starts up.

You find your own apps under Work, as well as apps that have been published organized in streams.

You can publish your own apps from the hub, to a stream which you have publish access to. You can also move your published apps between streams from the hub. Apps can also be published from the Qlik Management Console.
