How can i import 1) QVF's 2) QVD,s files from one environment (QA) to another environment (DEV) please?
Note: I am working with Qlik Sense Enterprise version (Qlik Sense server).
I do not have access to QMC.
I think that you'll need to export your files (under QMC, apps, select the app, more actions, and then export)
and then import it in the new site.
But I do not have access to QMC.
Like can i copy all binary files (hence QVF's files are save in binary format in server unlike desktop) from one environment to other environment. is it possible?
It's a bit unusual for Administrator (I am assuming you are since you are migrating files from one environment to another) not to have access to QMC.
But yes, you can do it without QMC...
1. QVDs are just normal files, you can copy/paste them from/to folders...
2. Applications are a bit tricky since Qlik is not storing them in "normal" format.
3. They are located in \\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Apps folder on your system:
So you need to know which file(s) to copy, but you find it by looking at URL(s) in HUB when you are opening your application(s).
Paste these files into corresponding folder in your DEV system....
Kind of hack, but works....
Unfortunately Its not worked out.
My source path : E:\Appa (configured directory) in QA environment.
Target path: C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Apps\ in DEV environment.
is it fine?
Does not matter, actually. As long as there are files with names similar to "5XXXXXX7-5XX4-4XX1-8XXA-EXXXXXXXXXX5" there ....
No, you do not need to stop/restart services as long as you copying files. Moving them will be blocked by the system, though.
You just need to refresh your Hub on destination system to see the new files....
I would suggest not to copy/paste all the files from old system to the new one at once... It might create a conflict with existing files/app's names.
Find couple files you need to copy and detect their App's IDs (these 36-charecters strings above) and copy/paste them first...
Yes, initially i moved 2 apps only.
I need to be assigned token (user pass or login pass) for to do this?
Actually i tried to create new app here but getting error message as "you have no access pass".
