Discussion board where members can get started with Qlik Sense.
Can you recommend a standard folder structure for QlikSense development?
Help me out. Folder structure for what exactly?
For development and deployment. Like folders for QVD, Source excel, Images etc.
What if we are not using QDF? I suggested the user a folder structure like Resources, QVD, Include etc. I am looking for a standard like that.
And what exactly is this QDF? Do we need to install it? How does it work?
I would recommend the below folder structure. Please find the below table to know what folder refers to what.
Contains script files (.QVS and .TXT).Data connections, and variables files should be stored under this folder.
2. Source Files
Input Files like excel files/csv files should be stored under this folder.
3. Extraction Scripts
Extraction scripts will be generated to extract data from source files and any other data bases. This script should be saved under this folder as a backup file.
4. Output Files
All the Output Files generated by using script should be stored under this folder like qvds
Applications relate to project specific should be stored under this folder for back up with daily version
Any project specific documents should be stored under this folder
We should store any external extensions under this folder before it can be imported into Qlik Sense.
I am using Qliksense November 2017. I am not very clear about the contents of "Extraction scripts" folder. Will that be a qvs file?
Extraction scripts is qliksense file which contains database tables extraction and storing qvds script.
