Qlik Sense does not offer a way to export an app script directly as QlikView, but it can still be done through provided APIs. This can be important if needed for backups or software management/change control systems.
All versions of Qlik Sense
For now, exporting must be done with APIs since this feature does not exist in the interface yet.
The Engine API and the Capability API both have a method/function called GetScript()
that will allow the app script to be exported. Once the script is accessed, it can be saved to disc, for example, a folder that is perhaps monitored by a change control system. The Engine API can be found here
and the Capability API can be found here
. The following are examples of both APIs:Engine API:IAppIdentifier foundAppIdentifier = _location.AppWithId("....appId....");
IApp app = _location.App(foundAppIdentifier);
string script = app.GetScript();
Console.WriteLine(script);Capability API:var app = qlik.openApp("....appId....");
