extension usage dashboard/api, etc..

As of today, there isn't a solution to get an idea of the extension usage. However, I think this is a crucial need, especially when upgrading QlikSense.

So, what I sugget :
-a standard usage extension dashboard
-the ability to query the data through API.

Best regards,

(I know there is dashboard available on Branch but it requires all the apps to be closed.. so we cannot use it on a huge Qlik sense install... where we mostly need it)

I agree completely. The new Qlik Visualization bundles are great, but they basically mean we have to either keep duplicate extensions (which slows down the system) or risk breaking hundreds of existing apps by removing the deprecated extensions. We *really* need an extension dependency checker!

Is there any update on extension details w.r.t app's as we are having 70+ third party extension hence we need details which all apps got impacted after upgrade of QLIKSENSE Application from Nov 2017 to June 2019.

Please share the details if you have it will really helpful as its very difficult to manually update details for each app's.

Regards,

A little upgrade : we have now native container and in Qlik Sense February 2020 a new native navigation button. A good thing would be to remove all the extensions concerned in the Qlik Bundle with the correpsonding native object. However, when you don't know where you use extension, it becomes a painful task.

As an update, there is a tool which can provide this insight: https://github.com/eapowertools/qs-extension-usage-dashboard

It does require this project be setup: https://github.com/eapowertools/qs-telemetry-dashboard

Thanks, I have installed Telemetry dashboard and Extension dashboard in my qliksense but extension dashboard is not giving correct count of extension. We have 142 extension but it show total installed extensions 85. can you please let me know the reason.

@Iqbal_Khan : Potentially due to the fact that the app does not parse / include:

  • Widgets
  • Mashups

Widgets are a challenge to parse but there is an improvement to add it. Mashups fundamentally aren't in apps so it makes no sense to include them.
