No-code Qlik Platform Operations tutorials

The Platform Operations tutorial series demonstrates how to create, configure, and hydrate tenants in Qlik Cloud using APIs and other pro-code tooling.

A new tutorial series shows how to use the Qlik Platform Operations connector for Qlik Application Automation to achieve similar tenant creation, configuration, and hydration activities using the Application Automation no-code experience.

This series introduces basic concepts related to the connector, it’s configuration, and some of the things it helps you to achieve in Qlik Cloud for single or multiple tenant deployments.

Review the tutorial series to get started.

Data files API tutorials

Qlik Cloud allows you to upload or create certain file types for storing data within spaces. These files will appear in the DataFiles data connection when using the data load editor or data manager, and will also appear in the Cloud Hub catalog.

This tutorial series is all about data files, how to create them, update them, and delete them in bulk. You’ll also learn how they relate to other assets in Qlik Cloud, such as Analytics apps, data connections, data stores, data assets, and data sets.

See the full API reference, or review the tutorial series.

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"}'

Brands API

For Qlik customers deploying an OEM use case, Qlik Cloud can be branded to improve alignment with your own portal, software, or brand, reducing friction for your end users as they swap between experiences.

The brands API allows you to provide a custom logo and favicon to help enhance this user experience for your users.

The new API at brands supports the creation and management of brands in the tenant.

Important: Use of the brands API is permitted for OEM use cases only.

  • POST/v1/brands : Create a new brand
curl "" \
 -X POST \
 -H "Authorization: Bearer <API-key>" \
 -H "Content-type: multipart/form-data" \
 -F "logo=@/path/to/file" \
 -F "styles=@/path/to/file" \
 -F "favIcon=@/path/to/file"
