Discussion board where members can learn more about Integration, Extensions and API’s for Qlik Sense.
I work in a corporate environment developing an app, that has 500-1000 users in total.
So far we have used only the standard objects in our app, but as we are progressing, we are becoming more aware of the limits of the standard objects.
Because of this, and to improve my skills professionally, I've become interested in learning to create new custom objects.
However, the organisation I work with is very cautious, since the data we handle is sensitive. Also, there's the risk of breaking things otherwise in a serious manner.
Is it possible to make changes to the data load script with extensions?
How badly can you mess up things with a broken extension?
Any insight on this will be greatly appreciated.
This might not be the answer you want..
Yes, an extension can change the data load script, but only if the user running it has the right to do this.
And you can mess things up pretty badly.
Thank you for your answer. Of course I want to have truthful answer so I don't mess things up.
Is there a way to develop them locally so the risk would be smaller when practicing?
For almost all extensions, Qlik Sense Desktop is the best dev environment.
