The Application Checklist is intended to be a best practices checklist for a single Qlik Sense application. It requires a number of inputs from the user, e.g. disk size, number of tables, number of rows, etc. If all of the input fields have been filled and the completed boxes have been checked, a report may be generated. This report is a pdf that will simply log all of the data that you entered with some scoring. The scoring is a sum of the boxes checked in total and per category – if all boxes are checked, the maximum score will be received. At this point in time there is no additional intelligence derived by any of the field inputs. The intent of the report is that it can be shared either internally or externally (with Qlik, for example) to help others know what has been done with the application, and know the high level metadata around it. This report could be used to help diagnose an issue, or simply just used as a best practices checklist. It could also be used internally as part of a workflow process to ensure an application has gone through the necessary optimization steps before entering production.
Application Metadata Analyzer
About the Endpoint
As of the Qlik Sense June 2018 release, a new application level metadata endpoint is available via the Qlik Sense Proxy (exposed via the Engine). Data is populated for this endpoint post-reload in a June 2018+ environment. From this data, we have built a Qlik application that ingests it and provides lightweight dashboard to analyze your application. The URL to access this data is
where server is a server that the application can be accessed over and GUID is the application ID. Note that the application does not need to be lifted into RAM for the metadata to be accessed.
Data from this endpoint includes:
- server metadata including number of cores, total RAM
- reload time
- app RAM base footprint
- field metadata including cardinality, tags, total count
- table metadata including fields, rows, key fields
Example output from that endpoint can be seen here.
Application Metadata Analyzer App
The Application Metadata Analyzer is a Qlik Sense application that collates the metadata from every application on your server to give you a single app view of your application metadata along with additional data from the QRS API. Adding this additional data allows us to visualize who owns what applications, are they published or private, what nodes are they available on, etc. That application can be found here.
Application Metadata Analyzer Hosted Version
Below is a hosted single-app version of the Application Metadata Analyzer. This allows you to simply paste the JSON from your organization's environment and generate an app on the fly. This app will be available to you for 7 days, and will be available for download.

Telemetry Dashboard for Qlik Sense
With the February 2018 of Qlik Sense, it is possible to capture granular usage metrics from the QIX in-memory engine based on configurable thresholds. This provides the ability to capture CPU and RAM utilization of individual chart objects, CPU and RAM utilization of reload tasks, and more.
- Qlik Sense Enterprise February 2018 or later
- Enable Telemetry Logging, instructions can be found on the wiki
