User Bookmarks

This morning I had a user inform me that their bookmarks are missing from an app after they returned from time off.  As far as I know nothing was done to the app.

My question is where are user bookmarks stored and how can I look at them to see what might be going on?

Thanks

Re: User Bookmarks

I had a similar issue with Qlikview many years ago.  One day, users came in and saw that their custom objects had up and left the building.  We searched for them, but couldn't find them.  We assumed that the folks in the Identity Management department in Germany had fiddled with Active Directory, but we never go to the bottom of it.

I thought Bookmarks were stored in the Postgres db, but that's a hunch, not actual knowledge.

Re: User Bookmarks

Some times I feel sorry to say, why Qlik doesn't share these things are Knowledge base articles like all others tools

are doing.

Sorry If I bother you but this is a fact in both QlikView and QlikSense that people suffer at times with things in the server part like missing CALs , loosing Bookmarks, loosing custom objects etc.

My sincere suggestion to Qlik Knowledge base would be in this real competitive world where you are facing health competition with other tools , please increase your help base , video base and knowledge base

Re: User Bookmarks

Where would they be in the QMC.  I looked under App Objects.  But there are only sheets and stories there.  No bookmarks.

Re: User Bookmarks

I made mistake there are not listed on QMC.

you should install QMC utilities at http://branch.qlik.com/#!/project/57f67b7c06e8670cd284e852

and do a backup under "Source Control Assistant" to serialize the app in json files.

one of them is named "bookmarks.json" and there you'll find all bookmarks created.
