Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

Stupid question, but can ask Stefan to continue the scan instead of throwing an error?

Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

I haven't done it in a while, but with QS' older versions I used to export all metadata with QMCU (you can find them here: https://github.com/eapowertools/QlikSenseQMCUtility).
From one of the exported files (visualisations.csv if I'm not wrong) you can see the associated ID and if the object is an extension or not.
Hope this helps,
Riccardo

Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

Hi All,

If you would like to know what apps are using what extension you can use our solution!

One of our features is that you can see what extension is used by what apps.

We also solve problems like:

Version Control, Development Process, Multi developer support and diff analysis. 

Go to our website to check them out. https://www.platformmanager.com/

 

I hope this helps. Best regards Jorik van Voorthuizen.

Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

I was able to  get around this by using one of the Qlik Sense API wrapper in Node Js (GIT Hub  Link:  https://github.com/qmoni/qliksense-api) . I initially used the API to connect to the engine , then got the list of Documents , looped over each document and extracted the object type .

Following is the snippet in the API documentation that will give you information of the content in the sense document . The response is in the form of a Json object . The qType  attribute in the returned Json object is the name of the Object that the document is using .

let appId = '9586b50f-4df2-400e-8b4a-69874a7dcc3e'
let method = 'GetAllInfos'
let params = []
qlik.openDoc(appId, method, params).then((res)=>{
  console.log(res)
})

 

 

I then stored this into an array and converted the array to a CSV file to analyze in Qlik sense .

 

 

The API documentation is pretty handy and straight forward .

Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

You should probably verify that the qType really works, might be wrong in some cases (converted charts??). The visualization property is what's actually used, I think.

Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

In my case , I verified creating a new APP and adding bunch of  different objects . I found all the objects under qtype in my case .

Do you have any specific examples where you had issue?? Just wanted to know .

Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

Yes, the problem used to be converted objects. Try converting one of your charts to another chart type. Does the qType change?
