An updated Version Control tab for Qlik Sense & QlikView

April 29, 2020

This updated snippet (see original post from 2018) is available on GitHub, and included in this post.

The main benefits of this script are that it requires a single row addition per log, with no manual increment of the version number, and the version control information can be surfaced by the engine either to the UI or via the APIs.

This assumes a HidePrefix of %.
