2. Download the Library or Individual Extensions


In the Vizlib user portal you have the following options.


  • Download the Full Vizlib Library, which includes all available extensions in a packaged .zip file. This is recommended if it's your first time downloading Vizlib.

  • Download individual Vizlib extensions, which will download selected Vizlib extensions in a .zip file. This is recommended if you already have the Vizlib Library installed and only wish to update specific extensions.

  • Multi-version(Vizlib Subscribed User only). Subscribed Vizlib accounts will have the option to select fixed versions they wish to deploy to Qlik Sense. 
    • Important: We strongly recommend using fixed versions of our Vizlib Library and extensions in production.

  • Enterprise (For Vizlib Enterprise Customers only). Vizlib Enterprise customers have the option to download Vizlib by clicking the Enterprise tab (Figure 5).  
    • The Enterprise tab contains the offline version of the extension (known as on-premise), so can be downloaded in offline mode.   
    • The Professional tab contains only the online version of the extension.

3. Extract the extension to your Qlik Sense folder


  • Extract the .zip file to your default extension folder (documents/qlik/sense/extensions) in Qlik Sense.



4. Plug & Play - Vizlib Extensions can be used directly from Qlik Sense


  • Once successfully imported, Vizlib extensions can then be accessed directly from the Qlik Sense client by visiting the Customer Objects tab in Edit Mode:
