Duplicating an app

You can duplicate an existing app, to create a copy to develop further. You can only duplicate an app that you have created yourself unless your administrator has assign you a security role with duplication enabled.

If you have an admin role, giving you the administration rights needed, you can create duplicates of apps from the QMC.

To learn more about duplicating an app, see Managing a Qlik Sense site: Duplicating apps.

To learn more about default administration roles, see Managing a Qlik Sense site: Default administration roles.

Note: When you duplicate a published app, only the base sheets and stories will be included in the copy.

Do the following:

  • In the hub, long-touch/right-click the app you want to duplicate and select Duplicate.

    A toast notification is displayed for a while, at the bottom of the screen, when the duplication starts. A new toast notification will be displayed when the app has been duplicated and give you the possibility to update the app list. If the duplication fails, an error message will be displayed.

A copy of the app is created under Work. You can click the app to open it and start adapting it according to your preferences.

Note: Because of how the synchronization of data works in multi-node sites, apps containing images may display broken thumbnails or images inside the apps if opened right after being duplicated or imported. The broken images are restored when the synchronization is complete. To check if the images have been restored, refresh the browser window.
