Which apps are using which extensions?

On Qlik Sense Server, is there any way to see which apps are using which extensions? The reason is if an extension needs to be updated or deleted, I need a list of all apps that are using that extension so i can check that they aren't broken afterwards.

I tried digging around in the Qlik Postgres db, but couldn't find any connection there between Apps & Extensions.

Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

Hi bchastain‌,

Unfortunately, at this moment, the only way to find which apps are using which extension, is through scanning the app for object ids => get each object's properties => check if extension exists in QRS etc...

But there is an extension created by swr for that: GitHub - stefanwalther/sense-extension-governance: Analyze usage of Qlik Sense visualization extensi...

I hope this helps

Re: Which apps are using which extensions?

OK, well after digging further, I don't think this extension will work for us. It requires that all apps are closed in order to run, and that would be very difficult to accomplish in a large organization with many thousands of apps.

Do you know of any way of doing this without having all apps closed?

Bump.

Got the same issue in my work place.

We are upgrading Qlik Sense and need to know what extensions are being used by which apps.

I cannot get the above extension to work on Qlik Sense Desktop Feb 2018 Patch 1. It reports an error that the Connection is lost.

It would be great to have a "nice" solution so anyone's input would be appreciated.
