Qlik Deployment Framework is packaged into the Qlik Deployment Framework Deploy Tool. This is a management tool that extracts and maintains containers. The tool will also extract examples and documentation if selected.
Qlik Deployment Framework Deploy Tool can run in several different modes:
Please read DeployTool Readme document for more information.
Container Type Selector
From QDF version 1.7 you have the possibility to select between three container layouts. This mean that QDF Deploy tool extracts different container layout (folders) depending on the selection done in the Container Type Selector.
QVC library option
QlikView Components (QVC) is an open source library that can optionally be installed using the deploy tool. QVC works as an extension of the built-in QDF library, read more on QVC here.
Upgrade to v.1.7.2
Automatic upgrade from 1.x.x to 1.7.2 via the deploy tool, just point Deploy Path URL to your QDF root folder and the deploy tool will suggest to upgrade. Only vanilla QDF should be upgraded automatically, internal QDF script code (.qvs) will be updated so any custom modifications would be removed.
