Discussion board where members can get started with Qlik Sense.
for qvw files, we can use qlikview to it as file type = "xml" and extract some file properties
but i found that it is not supported for qvf files
can we do sth similar with qvf files in other way?
Go to Solution.
you can use Engine API to get metadata from the app, or use this extension:
GitHub - countnazgul/QS-backup-and-restore-app
The qvf file does not contain a xml part anymore, the part of a qvw file you could read in to look at some properties.
It seems to hold binary data only.
I haven't seen something apart from QS desktop to open these files, so I think we currently can't look at the qvf properties in a similar way as with qvw's.
This is not possible yet with the QVF's.
maybe I can try Ralf's suggested extension
