QVF File Extension

What is the .QVF file type?

The filename extension .qvf represents the Qlik Sense Appplication (.qvf) file type associated with the Qlik Sense commercial Business Intelligence (BI) software from QlikTech International AB. In Qlik Sense, an application is a database-like programmable model that can be run either locally or on a Qlik Sense server to fetch its data from a variety of sources on-the-fly, analyze it, and present the results in a user-defined way.

A .qvf file is a binary file in QlikTech's proprietary format representing a single Qlik Sense application, or app, created from scratch in Qlik Sense Desktop or generated from a QlikView document (.qvw). Qlik Sense apps (.qvf) are saved in the "%UserProfile%\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps" folder by default. This folder represents what is known as the Qlik Sense application hub, accessible both locally in Qlik Sense Desktop or through a web interface via port 4848. Any Qlik Sense app can be shared simply by copying the associated .qvf file to the same folder on another computer with Qlik Sense Desktop installed. Additionally, a local .qvf app can be imported onto an enterprise-scale Qlik Sense server.
