Is there a way to hide a sheet from the App Overview, but still access objects from it?

I am using a few objects from an app in a mashup and I need those objects to run off the app's data model but I also have users accessing the app and I don't want to have the mashup objects visible. Is there a way to hide a sheet and it's objects from being viewed in the app without actually blocking access to the sheet which would mean they couldn't see the objects in the mashup?

I don't want to create a 2nd copy of the app as it's pretty huge and don't want double the memory footprint.

Make them Master Visualizations and then delete them from the sheet. Master Viz's have ids, same as sheet visualizations and you can use the id in your mashup.

Hi Andy,

If you are pulling the objects by the ObjectId. You just can hide the sheet adding a conditional in sheet properties not by user.

If the sheet is hidden, you still can access the objects.

Does it make sense?

Thanks,

Carlos M

Is the conditional field on sheets from one of the newest releases?

Well, I have worked with QV since version 11, and the option is in there.

Oh, that's Qlikview but I'm trying to do it in Qlik Sense.

Oh Sorry for that. No, you do not have that option in QS.

You can do it by extension or mashup.
