New apps API endpoint & tutorial - change app object owner

Apps API

The apps API provides access to create and manage Qlik Sense and QlikView apps in Qlik Cloud.

To support Qlik customers migrating from Qlik Sense Enterprise Client-Managed to Qlik Cloud, a new endpoint at /v1/apps/{appId}/objects/{objectId}/actions/change-owner has been added. The new endpoint supports changing the owner of app objects in Qlik Sense apps.

This means that administrators can now migrate Qlik Sense apps with no loss of private or community content, ensuring that your users have no interruption in access to all of the objects from Client-Managed, including bookmarks, stories, sheets, snapshots, and more.

A full tutorial demonstrating the migration of an app and reassignment of object ownership is available here.

Note: You must own the object to change it’s ownership to another user.

  • POST/v1/apps/{appId}/objects/{$objectId}/actions/change-owner : Change owner of object
curl "{appId}/objects/{objectId}/actions/change-owner" \
 -X POST \
 -H "Authorization: Bearer <API-key>" \
 -H "Content-type: application/json" \
 -d '{"ownerId":"string"}'
