    List of Table/Data Dependencies in Qlik Sense

    Weston Kingsley

      Hello QC,

       

      I was wondering if anyone out there has a process or methodology for checking dependencies within an app for data connections or tables in a QVD source.

       

      I'd like to be able to run a query or check a list of some sort for any app that is using a specific table, or at a minimum a Data Connections, in order to see a dependency in case the source data/model ever changes. I understand these changes are rare, but we've had a case where the current system requires users to update an Excel document that is being used as a source and they changed the name of a column (without our prior knowledge) so a few of our apps failed to reload.

       

      While I understand this type of change SHOULD be rare, how can I know (other than a failed reload) that an app depends on a source or data connection in order to predict the potential impact of a change?
