Making visualizations, dimensions, measures available to all user

I see the Content Library but I am not exactly sure what you put in it or how you would access the content.

My goal is to have scripts, measures, dimensions, etc. available across all apps.  I see how you create Master Items within an application.  But they are only available in that app.

Is this possible to do and if so how?

Re: Making visualizations, dimensions, measures available to all user

Hi Mark,

Scripts, measures, dimensions, master visualizations, sheets, stories and Bookmarks are constraint to an app only. Where as the Data connections, visualizations, extension objects are global.

Its not possible to make measures, dimensions, master visualizations, sheets, stories and Bookmarks global but... you can make the script partially global.

1) create a folder connection to a new folder on your server and call it Scripts.

2) Create text files and save your scripts in that folder.

3) Now you can make use of the include statement in your load script editor to read the text files.

This is just a work around.

Thanks,

Sangram Reddy.

I think you need something like this for what you want: GitHub - mindspank/architeqt: A inheritance engine for Qlik Sense
