Follow the steps to set up your first Qlik Sense SaaS tenant. This is your Qlik instance, a server on cloud, with your own URL. You should obtain your URL at the end of the process, for example:

The URL brings you to the Qlik Sense hub. Here, you may upload an app, or start developing one yourself.

Uploading an App

In this tutorial, a sample app from the Qlik open source GitHub repo is imported. Click here to download.

Upload the sample app to your tenant.

Add an existing app to the hub

After successful uploading, you should see the app in your hub.

Access management console

Click the grid menu icon in the upper-right corner and select “Management Console” to open the console.

Open the Management Console

This is your new management console, neat, and smart looking. From here, you can manage roles, spaces, and events.


This is how you should set up your first Qlik Sense SaaS tenant. Below are some tips that may help you save a lot of time.

  • Use Google Chrome, if possible.
  • The on-boarding email usually arrives within a minute. If you don’t receive it within 30 minutes, don’t wait; register again or try another email address.
  • Your Qlik portal doesn’t link to your Qlik Sense SaaS tenant. Once it's successfully registered, you may access Qlik Sense SaaS via your tenant URL directly.
