Get active sheet name/id from Qlik Sense Dashboard

Hi guys,

I'm trying to obtain the active sheet from my QS Dashboard, in Qlik View exists the function GetActiveSheetId(), but in QS doesn't appear.

Someone knows the workaround?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Jose,

I don't know, whether exist this kind of function or not, but you can get the sheet id from AppURL.

.../sense/app/TST.qvf/sheet/ad9c308e-748a-4182-a9df-c396dbe82624/state/edit

If you use Desktop version, open QlikSense and open a browser with http://localhost:4848/hub/ and navigate to sheet, and there is the SheetID in URL.

Thanks undergrinder‌, but I want this feature to control in which page is the user, not for know the page id.

I'm using an extension called cubic-change-sheets-actions (https://github.com/cubiqanalytics/cubiq-change-sheet-actions)

I like this extension, I'll try it out.

I didn't find any method to elaborate which sheet is active, but an API document:

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense-developer/3.1/Subsystems/APIs/Content/NavigationAPI/getCurrentShee...

I think there is no easy method for this.

Hello,

Please note you can vote for this idea to implement the function
Active Sheet Name and Id as new functions on Qlik Sense

 

Best regards,
