Discussion board where members can get started with Qlik Sense.
can the variable overview be hidden, since I am facing that in the QlikSense edit mode, although I haven't seen any reference regarding hiding / showing variable overview in the help.
Go to Solution.
Oh ok, because in your original thread post you explicitly asked whether it can be hidden.
You can only view the variable editor on unpublished apps, once it's in a stream you won't be able to fiddle with variables as far as I know.
Variables belong to App.Objects resource which means they can be referenced to in security rules and prevent users from being able to "Read" that resource.
So the admin hided the overview at the QMC?
That's not the variables but the application's fields you're refering to.
In fact, when an application is published to a stream, users who have access to the app can only use master items (master dimensions and master measures) created by the author of the application.
With that, Qlik want to encourages the use of master items, so that:
Developer: do all the 'difficul' work; create the app; have control of the dimensions/measures to use, prepare everything
final users: performs analysis, create new chart by simple drag and drops without having to build complex measures.
=> Governd self bi for better results
Not 100% sure what you're trying to achieve as I think you refer to variables in a different context than me.
Maybe you can possibly elaborate a bit more on your use case?
check this picture and the picture in the first comment.
please check the 2nd pic and the 1st.
Understood - and you want to hide it, correct?
no I wanna see it, it is hidden in an App.
