How to create/upload two different versions of the same extension and show them differently in Custom Objects?

Hi there,

How do you create/upload two different versions of the same extension and show them differently in Custom Objects?

We have a shared environment of Qlik Sense, a few groups are using a different version of the extension and we require the newer version of the extension.

So to satisfy this scenario, is there a way to modify the existing extension e.g. change the name of the extension so that it does not replace the existing version but creates a separate copy please?

Hi,

Always try to make extension versions backwards compatible, but IF you really need to run tio versions, you can renare the newer one:

  • Rename the qext file
  • rename the main JS file
  • rename all CSS classes that contain the extension name

Look for all referenses to the extension name in the code. There really shouldn’t be any but you never know.
