Hi Paras,

I forgot to mention you need to edit the content admin role. Or you can create a new one if you like.

QMC--> Security Rules-->Content Admin--> Edit--> Context--> Both in Hub and QMC

That works very well. Tested in the latest version, 2.1.1.

Hi,

I'm not sure if I got it your question .Do you want to see each other app?

if this is the case, you can go to Documents/Qlik/Sense/Apps then copy the qvf and paste in each other folder.

Thanks -- to clarify, we want to see the scripts used to load the data in the app. Right now, I can see all the apps but I can't see the data load editor scripts created by the other developer.

Hi,

Is the script blocked? if so, you can uncheck the lock when you are in script editor.

If this not solve, maybe when you made the copy of the app, it was in 'read only' mode, so, you need to go to the qvf  you copy-> right click -.> properties -> uncheck read only mode

Hi Paras,

Assuming you are using Qlik Sense Enterprise (Server), you won't be able to see the script unless you "own" the app and it is in your "my work" stream. If you have sufficient rights you can copy your colleagues app such that you have a copy in "my work" or you can take ownership of the app. If you don't have the level of access required to do this you will need to get an administrator to assist.

If you are using Qlik Sense Desktop then Mauri's advice is correct.

For future reference, it helps us to help you if you can tell us exactly what product and version you are using.

Cheers,

Rod

Hello,

Also, if you get to be a content admin (option in QMC--> Users--> Add Role), you can start seeing each other's app and script etc. as long as it is published.

Thanks Serhan! I am going to request access to get added to that role and circle back if it resolves the issue. Thanks!

I received the content admin access but for some reason can't see the data load editor scripts on a published app...is there anything else that I could check? Thanks!

here's our qlik sense version if that helps.

Hi Paras,

The data load editor is not available in published apps, it is a basic security feature. However, now that you have appropriate access (assuming your implementation of the default "content admin" role hasn't been modified and isn't being overridden by another rule) you can take a copy of the app to work with in your "My Work" stream.

Do you have a copy of the app in your "My Work" stream? If not, now that you have appropriate access you should be able to take a copy of the app by right-clicking / long-pressing on it and selecting "duplicate". Alternatively, if you can access the QMC go into the Apps section, locate the app you wish to examine, select it and then use the "more actions" button to duplicate the app.

Hope this helps.
