Unable to view Imported Extensions in the HUB

Hi Everyone,

I have read access (in both HUB and QMC) to all the extensions imported into Qlik Sense and to the default ones already present. The default Read access rule to view extensions is also enabled. Yet, when I try to add a new custom object as an extension object, I get an empty extension list in the HUB. (screenshot is attached)

Please let me know that how shall I make the Extensions(which I already have read access to) appear in the HUB so that the extensions can be used in apps.

Find attached the screenshot of imported extensions in QMC and the empty custom object list in the HUB.

Regards,

Sanchayan Bhowmik

Re: Unable to view Imported Extensions in the HUB

Hi,

The extensions in your list (except the first one) are al templates, so they should not be availble in the client, but can be used in the dev-hub as templates for new extensions (or mashups).

For the first one, admin-test:

  • verify that the qext file is valid JSON
  • check type "type" property in the qext file, it should be "visualization"

You coul also check for errors in the browser console.

Hi Erik,

Thanks for the information. Yes the admin-test JSON file has type as "mashup" and not "visualization".

So, what is the difference between a type mashup and visualization?

Re: Unable to view Imported Extensions in the HUB

An extension is used inside a Qlik Sense app, in most cases it's a visualization. A mashup is the other way around, it's a web page that includes Qlik Sense content.
