protect data


I am creating several projects with data extraction performed in sql .

But there is a way to protect the script so that " just me " could change the data extraction ?

You could use a hidden script - within the editor click in menu on file. Further you could use include-variables to load your script from an external file - but you need to make sure that the reload-user had access to these path and the normal-user haven't.

Re: protect data

Assuming you will look to distribute your document via Qlik Sense Server when ready to publish to production environment then you can lock down access to the document so only certain users can access it and whether they can administrate the document or just view it in Server.

There is a utility that helps you to hide and reload hidden scripts on Qlik Branch see QlikSenseScriptObfuscater

If you don't want to have the script in the app you could create a webservice that gets the script and reloads the App.
