load a qvf file using qlik sense or qlikview

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?

thanks

Hi Jery,

you can use Engine API to get metadata from the app, or use this extension:

GitHub - countnazgul/QS-backup-and-restore-app

Re: load a qvf file using qlik sense or qlikview

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.

Hi Jerry,

This is not possible yet with the QVF's.

Thanks,
