various files of qliksense app

Hi All,

I am new to Qliksense. Unlike qlikview, qliksense file(qvf) contain other dependent files(like thumbnail images) which store in different folders.

Also, i see that, to view the qvf file in the hub, i have to place it in the Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps folder of my computer.

Could you please explain me the folder structure of Qliksense app?

If i want to share my qvf file with someone(who has qliksense license), which all files i need to zip and give it to him and vice versa?

Also is there any blog or document that gives this information.

Hi Suraj,

I would suggest you to zip the 'sense' folder ( in C:\Users\<User>\Documents\Qlik ) and share it. This will copy all the files across along with the thumbnails and even extesnions if used in your app.




The binary (with the embedded images) is in %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps

If you're using extensions (%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Extensions), then those will need to be shared or installed on the other user's machine.
