Qlik Sense Object Type Mapping

When you’re troubleshooting or diving into logs, it’s useful to have a mapping of object types. The name of an object is defined by the developer of that object, so there tends to be little convention – other some basic syntax rules and that Qlik Sense only allows one instance of the name per site.

Each object definition references the object type (qType)

Knowing what each type means is useful when inventorying a site for upgrade or migration.

Here’s a list put together at the time of writing. The latest version of the list is available on GitHub, and includes descriptions for each object.
