Mirroring Sites

Qommentary Mirroring architecture allows you to mirrow a Qommentary environment across multiple Qlik Sense sites. This way, commentary data can be shared and managed across all sites from any location.

In this type of architecture, there is a Central Node which acts as the single source of truth, and mirroring environments which communicate with the Central Node.
