    Qlik Deployment Framework Deploy Tool can run in several different modes:

    • QDF Install
    • Add/update Containers – if writing an URL to a valid framework the deploy tool will automatically present available containers. From here you can add new containers and/or upgrade the system
    • Upgrade available.
      1. Upgrade – the deploy tool identifies a newer version, you are recommended to upgrade
      2. Upgrade unknown deploy tool could not identify the current version, you are recommended to upgrade to latest QDF.
      3. Reinitiate replaces the framework built in scripts (within all containers), re-initiation can be done if Qlik scripts been compromised or minor fixes replacing the same framework version.

    Please read DeployTool Readme for more information.


    Container Type Selector

    From QDF version 1.7 you have the possibility to select between three container layouts. This mean that QDF Deploy tool extracts different container layout (folders) depending on the selection done in the Container Type Selector.

    Automatic upgrade from 1.x.x to 1.7.0 via the deploy tool, just point Deploy Path URL to your QDF root folder and the deploy tool will suggest to upgrade.
