how to add extensions for the old apps imported from Qlik Sense Desktop to Qlik sense cloud?


I had apps created in Qlik sense Desktop version back in 2017 and now when I have imported those apps in Qlik sense cloud version i am not able to see all the components in the  visualization sheet e.g. the export button which used sense-export-master extension is not shown in the visual (screenshot attached for reference). Also the qsSimpleKPI extension not reflecting.

Could you please let me know how to upload all the extension files that I already have in my system (as a backup) in the Qlik sense cloud?

Hello @robhagat,


You can upload and add any extension to SaaS environment following the steps from here: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/cloud-services/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/Admin/mc-extensions.htm


Adding a new extension


Do the following:

  1. In the Management Console, go to the Extensions section and click Add in upper the right-hand corner.
  2. In the pop-up, click Browse to select an extension file, or drop a file in the designated area.

    Note:You cannot upload an extension with the same QEXT filename as an existing one.

  3. Optionally, add tags.

  4. Click Publish.

  5. If the extension you just uploaded contain external resources, you need to allowlist the origins in the Content Security Policy. See Managing Content Security Policy.

Hope it helps 🙂
