Add a system variable for referencing the Local Space in SaaS

In Qlik Sense SaaS, currently there is no relative way to refer to the current space in which an application resides.  This is needed to allow an app to be promoted between Dev, Test and Production spaces, referring to local resources, and not requiring a change to the script.

The suggested solution is to add a new system variable called "LocalSpace" which could be used to load/store files to the space with using literals.

hi 🙂

Is there any update on "relative way to refer to the current space in which an application resides."?

Thank you

This needs to be implemented.  when an end user is given a link to an app, nothing in the app tells the user where the app is located. nothing tells the user what space the app is in. they cannot go look at what other apps are in the same space, because --- they have no idea what space the app is in. this is a gap in the usability. at a bare minimum, the app overview should indicate where the app is currently at.
