Back Up Qlik Sense Enterprise Client Managed Applications

It is common to back up Qlik Sense Client Managed servers at a server level, often with a virtual machine snapshot. Applications can be backed up by having copies of them in different streams or work areas on the server. Apps can be exported one application at a time using the Export function, which is time consuming. Or a file level backup can be made by copying the repository, but apps are hard to identify as they all have a GUID for the name. This post looks at a simple way that all apps can be copied to a different location, as a QVF file, with a sensible file name. […]

Monitor and Notify Sense Capacity Licence Usage in Qlik Cloud

Capacity licences are a great way of granting many, infrequent, users access to your Qlik apps. Monitoring usage of available capacity is critical though and is not immediately straightforward in Qlik Cloud (SaaS). This tutorial, and sample app, show how you can monitor usage and alert when usage is exceeding what is expected. […]

Loading Data from Online CSV Sources into Qlik

There are myriad different data sources out there, and it is possible to load any of them into Qlik. Some are easier than others, sure, but there is always a way. There are good articles and posts on some of the trickier sources, but today I want to show you how you can bring in CSV data from GitHub. This means you can pull up to date, crowdsourced and governed data directly into your applications, just by following these simple steps. […]

Analysing Sense Session Logs

There are a number of monitoring apps that ship with Qlik Sense Enterprise on Premise, some of which you need to upload to your site. All of these are black-boxes to an extent though. What if you want to build your own analysis over the Sense log files? Well, this blog post has you covered. […]

Reading RSS Feeds with Qlik REST Connector

Qlik Sense can consume data from just about any data source and present it visually. One rich source of data you may not have considered though is the RSS feed for a blog. This can, however, be loaded by Sense just like any other source. This blog post describes how and gives the code for reading from WordPress (and perhaps other) RSS feeds. […]

Instant Qlik Sense Application

Over the years I’ve gathered a number of bits of code that I have reused, across both QlikView and Sense. Something that is always helpful is allowing users to pick expressions and/or dimensions in their applications. Recently I decided to pull the most useful techniques into a single app, which you can download and use. This post introduces the QI Instant Sense Application and describes a bit about how it works. […]

Cloud File Services and Qlik Sense Business

Sense Business is Qlik’s flagship Cloud offering, and it is now possible to build and securely share full featured apps in the Cloud. Not having to provision a server and manage authentication can save a lot of time for a small business wanting to use Sense. If you are loading flat files though (such as CSVs or Excel files) it is not so obvious how to bring them in. This post explains all. […]

Triggering events with Qlik, IFTTT and Webhooks

Something I often say is that a Qlik dashboard is only worthwhile if it causes someone to take an action. But what if that action could be taken automatically? IFTTT (If This Then That) is a platform that allows different services to talk to each other and trigger events. In this post I look at how a Qlik load script can start an action. Specifically, it defines how you can play We Are The Champions on the office stereo when a new customer is won. Obviously. […]
