This article describes how to import Qlik Sense apps by using an automation. There are 2 possible approaches:
Import an app that's on the same tenant
Import an app from an exported app file
1. Import an app that's on the same tenant
The difference between this approach and the Copy App block in the Qlik Cloud Services connector is that you can specify whether or not to include the data that's in the app. This can be done by setting the "No Data" parameter.
Export App: This block will trigger an app export of a QCS app to a temporary file on the Qlik Temporary Content Service and output the Id of that temporary file. Choose whether you want to include the app's data by setting the "No Data" field to "true" or "false".
Import App From Export Id: This block will import the file from the Temporary Content Service. Specify the File Id that was returned by the Export App block. Optionally, you can define other parameters like for example the name of the target app.
2. Import an app from an exported app file
Export app This approach allows you to import an app from a file. First, use the Export App To Base 64 Encoded File block in combination with the Cloud Storage connector to create the file on any of the supported destinations. In the below example, Dropbox is used.
Import app To import the file again, use the Open File & Read Data From File blocks from the Cloud Storage connector and use the output from the read block as input for the Import App From Base 64 Encoded File block from the Qlik Cloud Services connector.
