    New IDEA: Create master items (dimensions, measures) in script

    Marcel Hug



      We are currently using QlikView, and here lots of KPIs (formulas) and dimensions (table fields).

      The KPIs and dimensions are stored in an Excel file as meta data.


      What we are definitely missing is the possibility to create master items within QSense script!


      The current possibilities need manual work or using the API. The first option is not feasible having lots of KPIs and dimensions. And if changes apply, manual work must be re-done over and over.

      The second one needs setting up a development area to handle JSON, API Calls etc. We do not want this. As e.g. for JSON, an additional transformation layer to get the correct input will be needed.
