Application Checklist

Streamline your Qlik Sense experience and ensure the highest standards of performance before releasing applications to production.

Conveniently accessible in Chrome Side Panel Application Checklist provides a holistic approach to performing the checkup of application compliance to the best pre-deployment practices.

Turn on Gitoqlok Helper to find Application Checklist feature in App overview.

The landing page displays the list of Pre-deployment checklists, that are visible to every Gitoqlok user.

At the top of the Pre-deployment checklists, you can find the Default Checklist by Gitoqlok, where our team has gathered some of the best practices and recommendations for Qlik developers to review before deploying an application.

Each checklist is formatted to represent the hierarchical view: Section -> Item -> Description. You can mark each checklist item as completed. Once each item within the checklist is marked as done the section highlights green:

To open the links in the description press Ctrl + click on the link.

Once you have ensured the consistency of your application with the checklist components you can publish your application right in the side panel:

  1. Choose a space

  2. Give your app a name

  3. Enter the description

  4. Check out Tags Manager notifications for publishing sheets

To ensure the consistency of the actual state of your sheets with your intention to publish them learn more about Tags Manager in Qlik Cloud.

Create custom checklist

For Gitoqlok to indicate you as a checklist author, please configure Git in options before creating a custom checklist. Otherwise, the checklist is going to be authored as "Unknown".

On the Application Checklist landing page find the "add" button. In the creation mode, you can:

  1. Enter your checklist components. Make sure to write up concise item names and neat descriptions.

    You can add more sections and items within sections. Drag and drop sections at your convenience.

  2. Add QSDA Pro performance check-up. If you add this option your checklist users will be able to integrate QSDA Pro into Gitoqlok to execute application performance check-up.

Learn more about QSDA Pro to ensure that your applications are optimized for the production environment.
