Data Lineage – View QVD Usage in Qlik Sense and QlikViewAugust 26, 2021
Our Data Lineage feature enables you to investigate the usage of your QVD files by QlikView and Qlik Sense apps. The ability allows you to learn:
- which apps are using a specific QVD file
- which apps are storing a QVD file
- what are the dependencies between QlikView and Qlik Sense apps
- are we loading QVD’s from the location they are being stored?
Also, the lineage allows you to switch between apps and analyze the usage of Excel and Text files as well. This all works fully automated. No manual intervention is required.
Using our Global search, you can also look for specific QVD files if you don’t know where they are being used. This also helps you to discover if you’re loading the QVD files from the same location as where you store the QVD files.
