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. […]

Monitoring usage of available capacity is critical though and is not immediately straightforward in Qlik Cloud (SaaS).

Analysing Sense Session Logs

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.

Not having to provision a server and manage authentication can save a lot of time for a small business wanting to use Sense.

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. […]

Using Qlik Sense as a Web Server

A while back, I blogged on Sending HTML Content via Email from Sense. What if that same HTML could be written to a web server to be picked up? What if you already had that web server available, in the shape of your Sense Enterprise Server? Read on to find out how to create data driven wall-boards and get information to users who don’t require Sense licences. […]
