Version 1.5 of the Qlik Sense Document Analyzer (QSDA) tool is now available for download here.
If you are not familiar with QSDA, it’s a free application profiling tool for Qlik Sense that can help you identify items such as unused fields, poorly performing expressions and data model problems.
Here are the significant changes in V1.5:
The Installer allows editing of all install paths and installation will create a log file in the User’s temp directory.
Improved error handling in the connector. Certain types of errors, such as a chart calculation timeout, will not terminate the script. Error count is reported on Summary sheet and detailed error messages can be viewed on the “Extract Log” sheet.
Items that should be considered incomplete due to analysis errors will highlighted in yellow. This highlighting is a work-in-progress as I discover new possible errors.
Field widths (Symbol width) are no longer estimated! Field sizes are obtained directly from the engine. Due to this change, this version will report different values for field sizes than previous releases, generally +/- 10%.
The connector edit dialog has been improved. Error messages now appear properly in their own window and a progress bar displays when the list of applications is fetching.
If you have general usage questions on QSDA, please use the comments section here or Qlik Community.
If you have a bug to report, use the issue tracker.
The only installation supported by the installer is QS Desktop. You can use QS Desktop to analyze applications on a server. It is possible to manually install on a server by uploading the application (qvf), the qsda-ribbon extension and the connector directory if you have the need and want to give it a shot. I do plan to create a supported server installer in the future.
