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.

Depending on your Qlik Sense Enterprise deployment, you may instead arrive at a cloud hub. In a cloud hub, you can view and interact with apps. To learn more, see Cloud hub.
