Is it possible to stop users from creating new applications in Qlik Sense Enterprise? Is so, how?

Hi all,

Is it possible to stop users from creating new applications in Qlik Sense Enterprise from the Hub? Is so, how?

It seems like anyone who has access to the Hub can create an app.

Yes, it should be possible within the security rules.  I believe that there is a default rule allowing everyone to create apps (shown below). If you modify this with certain user groups that should restrict app creation to only specific user groups instead of all users that are not anonymous.

Hi John,

You have to change the default "CreateApp" rule to exclude the users you don't want to create apps.

using the default rule, the user is allowed to create apps and have the stream "my work" avalaible :

Exclude users or change the following rule :

After exclusion, the personnal stream and the ability to create apps are removed :
