Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What are design mashups for Qlik Sense?

    Conceptually, a mashup is a web page or application created by combining data or features from different sources. In the case of Qlik Sense, to create a design and interface different from the standard, we use HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Angular, among others.

  2. In QlikView it was possible to change the design of my application. Can I do the same using mashups in Qlik Sense?

    Yes. We can create a final user interface very close (and even better) than we had with QlikView.

  3. “Template” and “Mashup” design for Qlik Sense are the same thing?

    Technically speaking, no, but in practice, both mashups and templates can be replicated inside the server.
    For example, you can have an exclusive mashup for the sales team of one company and another mashup for the management of the same company. Both may have the same visual pattern but will need to have distinguished names, since mashups are installed on the server as extensions.

  4. What Qlik Sense license do I need to use with design mashups?

    Currently, only “Enterprise” and “QAP” licenses can make use of mashups. As it functions as an extension of Qlik Sense, there is no additional cost of infrastructure beyond Qlik licensing already acquired.

  5. Can I use design mashups in Qlik Cloud?

    No. Qlik Cloud does not allow the use of extensions in the Cloud.

  6. What are the advantages of using a design mashup compared to the standard Qlik Sense view?

    Countless. The main ones are: freedom to create the layout, grouping of QVFs in the same mashup, integration of external content from other web systems, possibility to include more objects on the same screen using vertical scrolling, among others. You can read more about it here.

  7. Do mashups allow end users to create their own visualization objects and stories?

    No. Self-service features like creating new charts, stories and bookmarks are restricted to the standard view via the Qlik Sense hub. Users who need to create their own analyzes should access the QVF and not the mashup.

  8. How will users access the mashups?

    Each mashup generates a unique URL, which can be accessed directly in the browser (such as a shortcut on the desktop, for example), or as a link in a corporate internal portal. You must have username and password to access (the same one used to access the “HUB” of Qlik Sense applications).

  9. Can I display content from different applications in the same mashup?

    Yes. But the mashup must have been constructed in a way that allows interactions in the filters of each application. The templates marked as “multi-app” in our store are prepared to receive multiple QVFs.

  10. I bought a product from Sense Templates store and Qlik Sense released a new release. Will my mashup continue to work?

    Yes. Typically Qlik Sense periodic updates do not interfere with our mashups, since we use standard programming languages.
    In any case, all products sold in the store have 1 year support for compatibility with new versions of Qlik Sense. Read about our Terms of Use to learn more.

  11. Am I entitled to a refund of a product purchased from the store?

    Yes, but only in specific cases described in the Terms of Use in the Refund topic.
