Qlik Sense ExportScript

Export/Import Script button for Qlik Sense

[DEPRECATED] This project is no longer maintained. Please use erikwett/DevTool for the same functions and more.

Purpose and Description

The Visualization Extension com-qlikcookbook-ExportScript for Qlik Sense allows you to add a button to a Qlik Sense sheet to provide for exporting the app script to an external file, or import script from an external file.

This extension will only work when used from a browser window. It will not work when used from the Qlik Sense desktop. You can use a browser window with Qlik Sense desktop by opening a browser window to http://localhost:4848

Click the "Export Script" button to export the current script to an external file. The export file will be created in the browser download folder and will be named "appname.txt".

To import a script file, click the "Import Script" button to choose a file or drag a file to the "Import Script" button. The imported script will completey replace the existing script.

  2. Then install on either Qlik Sense Desktop or Qlik Sense Server:
  • Qlik Sense Desktop
