  1. Install/update the apps with a fully guided, click-through installer using an out-of-the-box Qlik Application Automation template. 
  2. Programmatically rotate the API key that is required for the data connection on a schedule using an out-of-the-box Qlik Application Automation template. This ensures that the data connection is always operational.

Other Qlik Cloud Monitoring Apps

Qlik Application Automation Monitoring App

This article shows how to use the Qlik Application Automation Monitoring App. It explains how to set up the load script and how to use the app for monitoring Qlik Application Automation usage statistics for a cloud tenant.

OEM Dashboard for Qlik Cloud

The OEM Dashboard is a Qlik Sense application for Qlik Cloud designed for OEM partners to centrally monitor usage data across their customers’ tenants. It provides a single pane to review numerous dimensions and measures, compare trends, and quickly spot issues across many different areas.

For more information and to download the app and usage instructions, see Qlik Cloud OEM Dashboard & Console Settings Collector.

The Qlik Cloud monitoring applications are provided as-is and are not supported by Qlik. Over time, the APIs and metrics used by the apps may change, so it is advised to monitor each repository for updates and to update the apps promptly when new versions are available.

If you have issues while using these apps, support is provided on a best-efforts basis by contributors to the repositories on GitHub.

Are there any updates on this? for instance I know that App Analyzer is now available for SaaS. Are there any other SaaS compatible apps now?

Hi!
Is there an app to analyze calculation time in miliseconds of objects inside an app?
Thanks

Hello @msan,

Analyzing object-level performance is achievable in-product through the App performance evaluation capability. The output of this process provides precise calculation times for each object in the application that was scanned. This data is not housed in any monitoring apps, as this process must be run individually on a per-app basis.

Example response of a single object within the xml output:

<SheetObjects>
  <Id>WQUb</Id>
  <ObjectType>table</ObjectType>
  <Title>Metadata</Title>
  <sheetId>ba4c8098-e3a2-4741-b527-d1e66d2de674</sheetId>
  <sheetTitle>About</sheetTitle>
  <responseTimeSeconds>0.044672686</responseTimeSeconds>
</SheetObjects>

Hello, 

Is there a possibility for SaaS users to drill down to sheet and/or object level in a report?

Like there is for on prem with Operations Monitor ?

Thx,

Sorin

Hi @Sorin39 ,

At this point in time, sheet-level and object-level usage data is not available in Qlik Cloud. While these events are technically logged and stored internally, they are not pushed as events to be consumed by customers. This level of logging is very verbose, and it would be a large increase in event logging to expose it. This is an educated guess on why it is not pushed today. @Thomas_Hopp can comment on this capability being on the roadmap or not.

 

Cheers,

Hi @Alan_Slaughter @Daniel_Pilla ,

The monitoring apps for the cloud are great. We have successfully deployed them for numerous happy customers.  

Lots of people we talk to are interested in being able to see who has been using which apps for how long.

 

Do you have any advice on how to bring this information in? Is there a plan to create an operations/Sessions monitoring app for the Cloud environment?

Thanks,

Sam

Hello @doynsc 

Happy to hear that the currently available apps are working for you!

For your idea/request, I can see that this can already be achieved with the apps we currently have. See Operations Monitor for Qlik Sense SaaS (this will take you directly to the comment including the relevant information).

All the best,
Sonja
