In Qlik Sense access to resources, such as Apps, are governed by the Repository Service. An  account for each service is created in the PostgreSQL database during setup, such as the sa_scheduler account above. For the Scheduler to be able to access the App during reload, this account must be added into Section Access, not the account running the actual service.

See also the help documentation:
"The INTERNAL\SA_SCHEDULER account user is required to enable reload of the script in a Qlik Management Console task." Managing security with section access



Make sure the Qlik Sense internal (non-Windows) account INTERNAL\SA_SCHEDULER is added to Section Access with access ADMIN. See also Managing security with section access
