Export Automations into a file

Exporting Automations into a file of some format like .qaa, equivalent to .qvf, .qvw and .qvd . With this we could store, backup and maybe version control of automations and also facilitate distribution of highly developed automations on the same (not as templates) or across tenants. 

Thanks

Hi @acgomes , 

In the course of next week, we'll be releasing new blocks in the Qlik Cloud Services connector that will allow you to export & import automations from JSON files. We'll also write a how-to article on using this for versioning with GitHub.

Hi @acgomes 

 

Thanks for sharing. 
Automations can be exported to a json file: https://community.qlik.com/t5/Official-Support-Articles/How-to-import-and-export-automations/ta-p/17...

We also released included the Automation API as blocks in the Qlik Cloud connector, so you can use an automation to version control to e.g. github. You can find 2 templates of this in our template picker, released yesterday:
