MSC - Deployments

With a multi-cloud setup, you can either deploy to Qlik Sense Enterprise for elastic deployments or Qlik Cloud Services. Qlik Sense Enterprise for elastic deployments supports deployment to public or private clouds on a customer managed infrastructure. Qlik Cloud Services supports deployment on an infrastructure managed by Qlik. Currently, you can set up one of each of these deployments.

The setup differs depending on whether or not you use a local bearer token.

Setup with a local bearer token

A local bearer token simplifies the deployment setup. Instead of using the token endpoint, client ID, and client secret properties to retrieve a bearer token from the IdP, a bearer token is generated locally.

Before you start setting up your deployment, make sure you have the API endpoint, provided by Qlik in your welcome email.

To set up your deployment:

  1. In the bottom left corner, click Set up new.

  2. Enter a deployment name.

  3. Enter the API endpoint, which is sent to you from Qlik.

  4. Enter audience: qlik.api. Audience is needed by the app distribution service to get API tokens from cloud.

  5. Select Use local bearer token and click Apply.

    The local bearer token for elastic deployments settings are displayed.

  6. By default, the Qlik Cloud Services format check box is selected. The text box then displays the IdP definition. If you clear the check box selection, the IdP definition is displayed in regular text. Use this format when you deploy to Qlik Sense Enterprise for elastic deployments.

  7. Choose the format you want to use and click Copy to clipboard to save the text. You need this text when you configure your tenant.

  8. For QCS, you paste the IdP definition in the Paste local bearer text box on the tenant configuration page.

    For QSE for elastic deployments, you paste the IdP definition in the values.yaml file.

Setup with IdP integration

Before you start setting up your deployment, make sure you have the following:

  • Client ID and client secret (collected from your IdP provider)

  • Token endpoint

  • API endpoint (provided by Qlik in your welcome email)

To set up your deployment:

  1. In the bottom left corner, click Set up new.

  2. Enter a deployment name. (You can use this name in distribution policies for the distribution of apps.)

  3. Enter Client ID and Client secret.

  4. Enter Token endpoint, also known as Authentication URL.

  5. Enter API endpoint, which is sent to you from Qlik.

  6. Enter audience: qlik.api. Audience is needed by the app distribution service to get API tokens from cloud.
