Can you edit more than one master item at a time in Qlik Sense?

Hi everyone.

A client has decided to change the naming convention of Qlik Sense master items, i.e. the name, description and tags.


Just before I go down the long road of manually editing a 200 master items, is their a way to edit multiple master items?

For example utilizing an API or editing the loadscript?

I hope very much someone has an answer - and if not I believe this feature is very important in future releases when you consider the importance of master items in Qlik Sense.

Hi Alex,

You wont be able to edit from the load script as its a master item. You can create master measures using the engine API and a lot of other stuff like creating sheets, master measures, dimensions etc but I don't think editing all the 200 master items in one go is possible yet.

May be you will have to develop a script with all the master items looped through the engine api to achieve this.

Thanks,

Sangram.

Hi Sangram.

Thanks for your reply. I will try to develop a script to this and share the solution if I can get it to work.

The engine API sounds very interesting after all

Brgds,

Hi Sangram.

I have found the GetMasterObjectList() but this method seems only to return the master items. Do you have any idea what a method for return master measure/dimensions items?
