Where do Apps reside when created from the hub?

We have had Qlik Sense now for a few weeks and created an app on the hub.  it immediately appeared in the app section of the QMC but I was wondering "where" the app actually resides?  I have looked through various click folders on the server and can't find it.

thanks

Also is there a way to copy the .QVF file  from a desktop installation into the QMC?  I know I can import but when you import not all of the thumbnails come in.

thanks

cathy

Hi - Qlik Sense Enterprise saves the apps under a default folder. You can see it from the qmc under engines -> properties.

The QVF files are named with a GUID file name. You can find out which GUID for which app by going to qmc -> apps and enabling the GUID field to show in the top right.

There is a method to change the directory which is 'manual'  . But this will improve soon.

Hi Cathy!

You should upload your thumbnails into default content library in QMC, and set them as thumbnail at the Hub edit mode.
