Opening the same Apps in multiple tabs with different selections

Have you ever noticed, when you have the same app open twice and make selections, those selections are reflected in all your open tabs? This is because they are all open using the same session/identity.

This has been one of the most requested features by our users as they like to compare things side by side, without changing the selections every time, or having to build charts with alternate states.


Luckily, there is a way to bypass this using the Qlik Single integration API.


The Single Integration API provides parameters that can be used to create an URL that returns a complete HTML page containing for example an embedded Qlik Sense visualization. This URL can be embedded in a web page, for example by including it in an iframe.



Here's how :

  1. Open your desired app multiple times
  2. In the first tab, add this parameter at the end of the URL: /identity/1 (The 1 is alphanumerical and can be longer than 1)
  3. In the second tab, add this parameter /identity/2
  4. Repeat this step for every other tab you have opened


Voilà! You are now able to make different selections for the same app!
