I found this utility that works pretty well on migrating from dev to prod - Qlik Sense QMC Utilities
The apps migrate nicely and you can manage rules, objects, etc. I haven't found a way to smoothly migrate everything, but this is a good start.
Hope that helps,
Wow Jason thanks! I haven't tried it our yet but I just read through the overview and it sounds like it will help me do everything I need plus way more. Stuff I did not anticipate finding a solution to until a little later down the road. And it is free! I don't know how Jeffery and his team does it but I am glad they do.
