A gray square where a visualization should have been, caused by a missing extension. You’ve probably experienced that yourself. PlatformManager helps to prevent this and at the same time provides insight into the use of extensions.
Why manage Qlik Sense Extensions
Working with different versions of extensions can cause problems. It’s helpful if you can see which apps are using a particular extension, so you can test a few before the extension is published to Production.
PlatformManager helps you to understand dependencies and publishing extensions. This simplifies and improves the use of Extensions with Qlik Sense.
Benefits Qlik Sense
How to import Qlik Sense Extensions
Qlik Sense Extensions can be added directly to PlatformManager from every Qlik Sense server. Extensions also can also be added to PlatformManager by loading a zip file. During the import of a Qlik Sense app, PlatformManager checks if extensions used in that app are available in PlatformManager. If that’s not the case, the app won’t be imported into PlatformManager. That means there’s an active check to prevent mistakes from missing extensions.
Check, check double check
Check which apps are affected when a new version is introduced and with just 1 click PlatformManager provides insight into the use of extensions and takes care of the roll-out to the Production environment. An extra check during the promotion prevents apps from using an extension that is not present in Qlik Sense.
Insight in versions
Change the Extensions in Development, test them in UAT and publish them to Production. Independent of each other. Check which apps are affected when a new version is introduced and see which version is in which environment with 1 click.
When a new version of the extension becomes available, you want to check the impact. Which apps are affected by this change? PlatformManager shows which apps use which extensions and vice versa.
