Tenants: Productive versus Development

Hi experts

We are currently running on premise Enterprise on Windows. I have to plan a Qlik Cloud solution.

Currently we need a test environment to test and release new Qlik versions. This I think is obsolete in the Cloud. Furthermore on our productive on premise system we do have connections which are showing to Qlik folders which are used for apps in streams for quality/test reasons.

I don't like the later scenario as it augments the task load. When testing I am doing this in my or the key users work folder. The latter one will release the testing and I set the app (and its related underlaying scripts) to the stream and later to the space.

How does it look like in the Cloud? How do you fulfill your testing requirements / environment of new or adjusted apps and scripts?

Thank you, Tom

Hi @TomBond77 testing and development in Qlik Cloud uses the concept of shared spaces for collaboration and development/modification of applications. As opposed to the separation of environments(Test/Production) which you are used to with Qlik Sense. A shared space in the  hub is used to develop apps and also to control access to applications.  Roles are assigned to members within the Space to implement this.

For a complete explanation please refer to these help pages and the embedded links;

Hope this helps!

I'd like to follow up on this question, specifically on data connections.

In Qlik Sense Enterprise, the apps in our TEST environment point to TEST database whereas the apps in our PROD environment point to our PRODUCTION database.  The data connection names are the same so migrating from one environment to the next involves no changes to the script.

Below is a hypothetical example...

Will these spaces have similar functionality?  In other words, will I need to modify the script data connection when I migrate an app from a TEST space with apps that point to TEST databases - over to a space that has the same apps but point to PROD databases?

In Qlik enterprise, I don't need to worry about this because the data connection name is the same.
