To read who has deleted an app:

  1. Navigate to either C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Repository\Trace (default logging folder) or your archived log folder if the log file is from a previous archiving cycle. 
  2. Locate and open QLIKSERVER1_Audit_Repository.txt 
  3. The line including the delete app action will look like this:

    INFO QlikServer1 Audit.Repository.Repository.Core.Repository.AppRepository 56 17eca1c0-6c7a-4ed9-87ac-3184e331f508 DOMAIN\QVservice App delete c0dee38d-9346-1d6c-0e3a-ff6f9033c824 Delete DOMAIN administrator 

    In this example, the user administrator has deleted the app with ID c0dee38d-9346-1d6c-0e3a-ff6f9033c824.
