Master items disappear from the exported or duplicated copies of sheets (on a published app)
Master items disappear from exported or duplicated copies of sheets. This includes when a published app is duplicated or exported via the HUB or QMC. This will result in the duplicated app. showing error(s) and a message This linked visualization is invalid. The master visualization has been deleted or the link to it has been broken.
Note: The raw application file (.QVF) can be imported directly from the shared content folder and will retain all Master items.
Review the security rules configured in the system. A custom security rule designed to allow for Master Items to be added to a published app may exist and needs to be removed.

The underlying problem is a security rule that is configured to allow for adding/creating Master Objects in an application after it has been published. This is what will cause the visualization error when that app is duplicated or exported.
