Hi,

I'm new here  and hope this is the right place to ask this.

Is there an add-on/ extension to the Qlik enviroment (I useQlik sense) that can document(export) load scripts/ object scripts/ object settings/ etc...

Preferable some sort of text file. 

I would like to compare to app versions and see what was changed.

Thanks for any answer.

Best regards,

Marc

I can suggest several approaches.  

1. You can serialize the app to json with something like  https://github.com/Philips-PHM/qlik-cli or QRS as described here https://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Monitoring-Administration/Sense-App-Metadata-Analyzer/gpm-p/15921....  You can also build some nice metadata extracts with corectl https://github.com/qlik-oss/corectl.

2. QS Document Analyzer https://qlikviewcookbook.com/recipes/download-info/qs-document-analyzer/ collects metadata and gives you an interpretation of the properties. However, it does not yet have a compare function although I expect it will by the end of this year.  You could also use the connector that's included with DA to build your own extract files and compares. 

3. There are commercial products that manage versions and report on differences. Platform Manager https://in4bi.com/platform-manager-qlik-sense/ and WIP https://www.ebiexperts.com/products/ are two that come to mind.
