Security Rule - Duplicate Apps in QlikSense Hub

good afternoon,

I would like to create a Security Rule, which allows ContentAdmin to duplicate an app in QlikSense Hub (if the App is published)

I have created:

((user.roles="ContentAdmin")) and ((resource.resourcetype = "App" and !resource.stream.Empty()) or (resource.resourcetype = "App.Object" and resource.published = "true"))

with Create,Read,Update and Publish selected, but do not get the option to "duplicate" when right-clicking the app.

The app Owner is the only one to have the duplicate option.

I have found references to this in other posts, but they lead to a dead link.

thank you,

‌Hi Andrew,

As it is now, only the app owner can duplicate the app in Qlik Sense Hub (creating security rules will not work in this case).

Best regards,

Emilie

Update: Please try the June 2018 release (when it's released). There will be a "Duplicate" action that can be used for this.

Hi Andrew,

Not sure if this information is of any help. Anyway, there has been discussions about this. Unfortunately, I'm not sure when it will be implemented.

Best regards,

Emilie

another thread here Re: Unable to allow a "Duplicate" option

I reached Qlik support and also reached today our Account manager to see if they can push this enhancement in the future versions.

Re: Security Rule - Duplicate Apps in QlikSense Hub

I am having extensive discussions right now with Qlik's Enterprise Architecture folks. Interestingly enough, they told me they do not see this as a big deal and they did not really hear other customers complaining about this.

What you can do to help to push this is to submit a ticket though official support channel and refer to this thread.

Re: Security Rule - Duplicate Apps in QlikSense Hub

Slightly related - and a solution that is working quite well for us here:

App duplicator for Qlik Sense on Branch.

The idea is to provide a one-page web site that allow users to create new apps based on existing Sense apps that have been designated as "templates".

Put some effort into making the templates good, and you are likely to get better quality apps, more consistent code style etc across the board - good things if you have lots of people developing lots of apps. Or if you are just lazy and don't want to copy-paste the same skeleton code into empty apps created from the hub.

The UI looks like this:

Create_app_from_template_2.jpg

Might at least help solving some of the app duplication uses cases we all struggle with..
