    Shared Persistence

    You can now deploy a multi-node site with shared persistence. This means that nodes share a single repository database and a single network folder for the application files. You can either share the central node repository or set up a high availability database cluster as the repository database. This allows for higher volumes of changes, such as reloads and removes delays caused by synchronisation.

    This is the current recommendation from Qlik for all new installations for Qlik Sense. The synchronised Persistence will be deprecated in Qlik Sense 4.0

    Known Issue: Shared persistence is causing timeout issues in some single node installations. The cause of this is currently not known.

     

    Desktop Authentication?

    AQlik Sense Enterpriseadministrator can allow users to authenticate theirQlik Sense DesktopagainstQlik Sense Enterprise.

    The usage for this is currently unknown and this cannot be used with the Qlik Analytics Platform.

    Users can also authenticate with the Cloud.

    Upgrading to Qlik Sense Desktop 3.2 SR2 means users must authenticate the app with either Qlik Sense Enterprise or Qlik Sense Cloud.

    Apps are not synchronised between the Desktop and the Server and there is no option to upload local apps to the Server or Cloud.
