Hidden script

QlikView provides this capability so .....

Add a simple Hidden Y/N control icon ( similar to the Data Manager generated lock icon ) that allows the Sense app designer to password protect / hide parts of their script.

Useful not only for people wanting to offer commercial Qlik Sense products, but for partners and even customers where for various reasons parts of the load script need to be hidden from prying eyes such as section access, etc.

I think this is just a UI change in the Script editor, and should have no impact on QIX ?

I would also agree to have the Hidden Script feature for us developers similar to what we already have in Qlikview.

Hopefully Qlik will consider adding this feature in the next release! As this feature will be very useful for business needs.

Yes please provide the hidden script feature. It proved to work in QlikView so why not in next generation product? Even Excel has means to protect the definition of formulas in cells.

Found it very useful!  Necessary to have this feature to prevent any careless mistakes.

It's been almost two years since this idea was first mooted by Andrew.

Is Qlik even listening (or reading this) ???

Can we have some definite plans for this feature? Cheers.

Hidden script is a really useful feature. Please bring it to Qlik Sense.

Not sure if the Hidden Script feature in the Qlik Sense script editor is in the upcoming roadmap for Qlik, but preferably it would be useful to have similar in Qlikview. This can prevent any unwanted edits.

Hoping to see this in latest Qlik Sense release.

Hidden script is a good feature to add to QlikSense. I hope Qlik would consider it in the next update.
