New QlikSense Enterprise setip - best practice for folder ogranizing

We are setting up new QlikSense enterprise environment. I have few questions as to what is best practice or different ways to organize folders.

In our QlikView environment we have devided streams into 3 ways. Generators, data, application. how do we setup similar data flow in qliksense folders. 

 

Server:

C:  Windows 2016 OS

😧 QlikSense (Share) assuming this is where all the publish app will reside.

E: Can we store data here. if yes how do we allow end user to access this from server. (is it security rule?) Do we create predefined folder here and share it?

 

With QlikView you can RDP to server and organize files in its appropriate folders and manage it, however not sure how you do the same in Sense.

Try best to avoid storing anything in shared folder of Qlik Sense.  The deployment of Qlik Sense is different from QlikView.

You directly create apps/extractors from your work area(it eventually gets stored in the shared folder). The apps are then published to streams(you can decide who access what stream via security rules)

Hope this helps.

You do not store applications as in QlikView, they are handled automatic my the server. You only need to find a good folder structure for your data files.

what will good folder structure.

Do users normally have data folder on server and do all developer have access to it? how do you facilitate access to D:data folder for developers who will develop via browser

I've worked with Qlik sense access rights and folder structures at multiple companies. The need for securing applications and data differ a lot. I would recommend you to ask the business or system owner about their data.

In QlikView (and Qlik Sense) I've worked with the Qlik Deployment Framework for handling these folder organizing questions, I really recommend you to take a look at the QDF documentation even if you are not planning to implement the framework. There QDF has it own forum here at Qlik Community.
