iVIEW Library

Master the management of KPIs

with iVIEW Library

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are used by businesses to measure their performance against goals. Closely monitoring KPIs can help you gain a clearer view of where you are succeeding, and where there’s room for improvement. But in a data-heavy organizations, KPIs can become confused and lost, with duplications, redundancies and changes in logic invalidating them altogether.

See data clearly

Now you can master the management of KPIs, ensuring they are measurable, actionable, and transparent. iVIEW Library gives you the ability to track items across the Qlik landscape and Qlik Cloud environment within your organization.

It also does more than just KPI management. Let iVIEW Library handle all your master data management as a standalone web application for managing and deploying master data items and content definitions for Qlik. It gives you the opportunity to define and enrich your data and deploy it.

The iVIEW Library provides a single point of truth for Qlik content, providing one central library for all Qlik applications.



Define and enrich your data

iVIEW Library helps you generate and manage content: KPI definitions, descriptions, metadata to fields, variables etc.

Deploy real content

With iVIEW Library share content and KPIs with other applications. Scale out your knowledge and deploy to any application in seconds

Try new things become literate

iVIEW Library enables you to select data models, populate an empty app with data, master items and definitions

iVIEW Library is available for Qlik Sense & Qlik Cloud

One central library for all Qlik apps

As a self-service library, iVIEW Library offers central administration and distribution of business content across all Qlik applications. No one needs to access individual Qlik applications anymore to extract data, dimensions, or calculations. Instead, users find this information structured and can use it intuitively

How it works

Discover the intuitive Features of the iVIEW Library

The functionality of the iVIEW Library platform is easy to navigate and to model content according to your needs.

Main Features

iVIEW Library Main View

The iVIEW Library serves as a central repository for Master Items:

The user can Edit, Clone, Deploy and perform other functions dependant on their user roles and permissions.

App Management Views

Main View

This is a global view of connected Qlik Sense applications. The user has the ability to create, edit, deploy and publish apps across the Qlik environment. The advantage is that everything is managed from one central repository.

The applications are managed according to Qlik user permissions.

Detailed View

This view gives you a comprehensive list of all your items within a Qlik application. A user is able to edit items in an app/s, to clean up items and variables in app/s, remove duplicates, manage conflicts and merge content.

Subscription Management

In a split view screen, the user is able to select items in iVIEW Library and subscribe and deploy them directly into Qlik. Existing subscriptions can also be visualised, checked, reverted on and as an option items can be deleted in app/s.

App Management – Dependancies

Allows for checking dependencies within your apps in Library.

Ensures that expressions containing variables or references to Master items are detected and included in your subscriptions.

Subscription View

The Dialog contains a compatibility check feature. The user is able to refine their selection. It automatically checks for data model compatibility and to syntax within selected Qlik apps.


Import Main Features

Gives the user access to the Qlik app and view existing items and variables to select items from more than one Qlik app, and stage them for bigger import action.

Import Dialog

The ability to import a Check list in a Dialog box. The dialog offers the option to subscribe directly into the Qlik apps of origin, overwrite the active duplicates within the Library and to replace Library definitions.

Import Features

The features list provides a comprehensive list of features that can be managed including:
These features are imported into Library to:

Import Conflicts

In the detailed view of a Qlik app you are able to examine conflicts. It also provides a filter option & values in the Library & Qlik app to perform a delta check.


Galaxies are sub-sets or restrictive areas of content to ensure access to a defined group of users. The roles will be assigned to users or user groups (LDAP / AD), allowing for protected content.

Galaxies can be defined flexibly by each customer, according to their BI information, app or project structure.

Ad-Hoc Reporting

Allows you to create an app «on the fly» that is based on the existing Qlik data model. This function provides data needed for the end-user.

The Library will generate the app and provide all information needed about subscribed items, which are applicable for Dynamic Reporting.

Dynamic reporting is shown in Qlik and it offers a flexible selection of dimensions and measures for analysis.

Ideal for self-service analysis.

Select Dependencies

The User can now check their dependencies against Library items. Ensures that expressions containing variables or references to the Master items are detected and included in the subscriptions.

Source Apps

Keeps track of subscribed applications and item compatibility. Useful for planning new deployments, or to validate expressions in different apps.

What's coming

KPI tree/ hierarchy

The KPI tree or hierarchy will allow users to define business dependencies between KPIs, which can then be visualized as a graph. It is a useful tool for understanding how different KPIs are related to each other and how changes in one KPI can impact others.

Qlik to Library

Integrate Qlik with iVIEW Library using APIs and connectors. This integration will allow users to access and manage their iVIEW Library content directly from within Qlik, without the need to switch between applications.

This enables a more streamlined and efficient workflow for managing your KPIs and master data.

Use cases FoR iVIEW Library

Importing Items from Qlik Sense Apps

As a Qlik Sense user or developer, it is essential to have the capability to access existing content within Qlik Sense applications and import it into the central repository in a controlled manner.
One scenario is when a new application is developed, and new data is created, which may lead to the creation of new KPI definitions. In this case, the developer can transfer the new content into the iVIEW Library.
Another scenario is when ongoing changes occur, and the definitions from the iVIEW Library need to be replaced with the updated content in existing Qlik Sense applications.

Deploy and Subscribe

A crucial feature in the iVIEW Library is the capability to deploy content from a central location to multiple Qlik Sense applications, even across different Qlik Sense environments including Qlik Sense and Qlik Cloud.

By serving as a single point of truth, the iVIEW Library ensures consistency and coherence.

Furthermore, the iVIEW Library offers a unique feature: the ability to “subscribe” to central content. This “subscription” establishes a direct link between an item (such as a KPI, dimension, or variable) and one or more Qlik Sense applications.

Create an Application on the Fly

The iVIEW Library provides the option to generate an app “on-the-fly”, populate it with data, and provide it with items without even having to create an app. This can be achieved without opening Qlik Sense.

In the App Management section, users can create a new app, name it, and assign an existing data model as a basis. Additionally, the user can determine on which Qlik Sense server the new app should be generated and published if necessary.

With the “Reload” function, the app is reloaded, and the developer is free to unleash their creativity from that point on.





For items to be successfully distributed to Qlik Sense, there must be a direct dependency between the items managed via the iVIEW Library and the underlying data models and applications.

To address this, the iVIEW Library provides for direct mapping of Qlik Sense applications to centralised content.

A list of “compatible” Qlik Sense applications can be maintained via the metadata of each item, so that the affiliation to these applications can be checked before the content is distributed by the deploy action.


For the data storage, you can choose between an embedded database (H2) and MS SQL Server database when installing the iVIEW Library. The latter serves as a repository and as a persistence layer.

The size of the database correlates directly with the size of the Qlik Sense infrastructure and how intensively the content is centralised. Basically, only metadata is held here. Experience shows that the size is in the small to medium MB range.

The database is openly accessible for read access, so that further analyses can be carried out.


For the Qlik content, the library follows the security concept of Qlik itself 100%, i.e. the user only sees as much as in Qlik. This includes and considers the implemented security rules as well as the “Admin Roles” that are configured in the Qlik Management Console (QMC).

The iVIEW Library implements Keycloak as an authentication and authorisation module. An LDAP connection is provided by default. However, authentication can be extended to other methods and protocols, such as SAML, OAuth2, etc.

For authorisation, the iVIEW Library relies on two basic roles: Library User and Library Admin. The model can be extended to the individual functions of the iVIEW Library. For example, roles for Deployer, App Manager and Library Owner can be easily implemented.
