Re: QlikSense Folder Structure

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?

Hi Reshma,

I would recommend the below folder structure. Please find the below table to know what folder refers to what.

Folder Name

Usage

  1. Include Files

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

5. Applications

Applications relate to project specific should be stored under this folder for back up with daily version

6.Documents

Any project specific documents should be stored under this folder

7.Extensions

We should store any external extensions under this folder before it can be imported into Qlik Sense.

Re: QlikSense Folder Structure

I am using Qliksense November 2017. I am not very clear about the contents of "Extraction scripts" folder. Will that be a qvs file?
