Publishing from Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows to other hubs

If you want to make your apps available to users who do not have access to the Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows hub, you can publish them to a cloud hub.

In a multi-cloud enabled Qlik Sense Enterprise deployment, your Qlik Sense administrator creates distribution policies in QMC. The Qlik Sense administrator then creates streams for your apps. When you publish or move an app to a stream with distribution policy app properties applied, Qlik Sense copies the app to the cloud hub. In the cloud hub, the app is staged. The tenant or analytics administrator then makes the staged app available in a managed space in the cloud hub.

Staged apps

In Qlik Sense SaaS, apps without owners that are not in spaces are called staged apps. When an app is published to a cloud hub from Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows, it will not have an owner or space. A tenant or analytics administrator can assign it to a managed space from the Management Console.

For more information on managing staged apps in Management Console, see Managing apps.


If you want to use tags in apps that are distributed from Client-Managed Qlik Sense to Qlik Cloud, you need to create a custom property called Tags and then add appropriate values that can be used when distributing the app. If a distributed app has a tag value Sales, that value is synced with the cloud app and visible in the app details. If a distributed app doesn't have any tag value, the displayed value in the app details is empty.

Streams and tags

The Qlik Sense administrator can have a distribution policy that distributes published apps with added app properties with one or more tags to a cloud hub.

When an app is published to a stream in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows, distribution policies determine the target cloud hubs that will receive the app with the tags. You can set app properties that control the destination cloud hub and tags when publishing in the Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows hub. Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows copies the app from the stream to the cloud hub with the tags whenever you publish. The destination for each distribution is controlled by distribution policies managed by your Qlik Sense administrator.

Apps can be published to only one stream, but they can be published with multiple tags to multiple cloud hubs.

Tip note

Your administrator can see the time of the last sync in the stream properties.

Depending on your organization you may prefer to move apps to an archive stream with no distribution policy instead of just removing the app.

Tagged apps can be modified in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows hub, like an app in any other Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows stream. In Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows hub. You can:

  • Duplicate apps in the stream.
  • Republish the app in the stream.
  • Manage app custom properties.
  • Open the app in Published.

In an open app in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows, you can:

  • Add public sheets and stories to the app or remove them from the app.
