Create/Delete/Upgrade Master Item from the script - at least for measure and dimension

Hello,

I'm surprised nobody posted this idea before.

I would like to create the master dimension and measure from the script, just like we can create variable. Why?

 1/this allows to centralize the master items definition in a file, easy to share between app, etc.
 2/ in script, you can do some check on the consistency of the items with the model, helping to build more robust items.

There is a workaround for this, and it is using SSEs. I'm internally using @rwunderlich 's solution: qcb-qlik-sse

Hi Patric!

 

Use there any update on this? This is a very essential feature, i would say it should be included by default. Dozens of app use same master measures. It is getting very hard to support this. Any new app i create gives me a lot of pain - i have to recreate all measures manually.

 

Thanks
