As Shraddha gave you the extension, you may need to use it as Navigation Action>Open Website in settings.

It would take users to other app in hub, if they have access to.

Re: How to create a app containing a selection field to select other apps

I need a dropdown showing all my apps in one app. Say i have A, B, C and D apps. The D app should contain a dropdown containing all remaining apps A, B and C and also populate master measures and master dimensions from other apps.

Thanks

Why an extension?

He can use the classic simple table that qlik sense offers.

Create an inline table:

load * inline [

Application, Application URL

app1, https://url of the app

];

then create a simple table; as dimension: Application URL, its label: Application and representation : URL:

Re: How to create a app containing a selection field to select other apps

I am using the sense-search extension. The problem in the extension is the app id is hard coded, i am it will be available for only app at a time. So, what i wanted to do is load a file containing all app id's and app name.

The User will select an app name say Cloud(app id - 123), Phone(app id - 124) and Laptop(app id -125). Then the app id should automatically change in my extension.

I tried providing DOM XPATH to the app name, but had no luck. If something is not clear kindly let me know.

Below is the code that i want to modify to make my app dynamic.

Thanks everyone.

var config = {

        host: --

        prefix: "-,

        isSecure: true,

//app: $app,

//document.getElementsByClassName(div class ="ellips-text"),

        app:x "3da25264-8a45-491f-b354-87a8a5e1338a",

        port: 443

      };

Yes Shraddha. I explained the full scenario below.

Re: How to create a app containing a selection field to select other apps

Check for below extension, mainly the SCRIPT behind this app

http://branch.qlik.com/?&_ga=2.213965584.661076975.1512395043-2070926411.1506006316#!/project/56def4...

Not an easy task to create your own governance app which stores all other apps.

But maybe you are looking for this?

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Extensions\QlikSenseGovernance-master\Project\Current Release - v2\2 - Qlik Sense Developments

Above folder location will take you to example apps to view script after you install the extension.

Or look into Document Chaining
