Registering and managing licenses

In the Licenses tab, you can view and register licenses for each of the Qlik Enterprise Manager modules. Currently, the following modules require a license:

Registering a license

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Click the Register License link in the Register License message that is displayed when you open Qlik Enterprise Manager, or that is displayed in the main Analytics tab (after you have already registered a Replication Management license).

      The Register <Module Name> License window opens.

      Continue from Step 5 below.

    • Click the Gear settings icon toolbar button in the right of the console.
  2. The Settings window opens.
  3. Select the Licenses tab.

    The following sub-tabs are displayed (one for each module):

    • Replication Management
    • Replication Analytics
  4. To register a license, select the relevant tab, and then click the Register License button at the top of the tab.

    The Register <Module Name> License window opens.

  5. Click Load to load the license from a file, or copy the license text (e.g. from an email message) into the License text area.

    Note:

    If the license you loaded or pasted is for a different module (e.g. you intended to load a Replication Management license, but mistakenly loaded a Replication Analytics license), a warning will appear at the top of the Register <Module Name> License window.

    In such a case, you can either register the license anyway (since you may have intended to register that license later) or load/paste another the license (i.e. the license that you originally intended to register).

  6. Click the Register License button at the bottom of the window.

    If the license is valid, a confirmation that the license was registered successfully will be shown at the top of the Settings window. Otherwise, an appropriate error message will be shown.

Viewing licenses

You can view the properties of registered licenses (such as when the license is due to expire).

  1. Click the Gear settings icon toolbar button in the right of the console.

    The Settings window opens.

  2. Select the Licenses tab.

  3. Select the Replication Management or Replication Analytics sub-tab accordingly.

    A list of properties will be shown.

Showing/hiding the Analytics Dashboards

The main Analytics tab is shown by default, regardless of whether or not you have registered a Replication Analytics license. If you do not intend to use the Replication Analytics module, you can hide the tab by either clicking the Hide Analytics Dashboards link in the Analytics tab or by following the procedure described below.

  1. Click the Gear settings icon toolbar button in the right of the console.

    The Settings window opens.

  2. Select the Licenses tab.

  3. Select the Replication Analytics sub-tab.

  4. Clear or select the Hide Analytics Dashboards check box as required.

    Note:

    This option is only available when no Replication Analytics license has been registered.

  5. Click Save.

License alerts

If any of the Enterprise Manager licenses are invalid, due to expire, or have already expired, a License Alerts link will appear at the top of the console. Clicking the link will list the issue(s) and provide links to resolve them (e.g. Register License).

Permissions

For information on permissions required to perform the various the license-related operations (i.e. registering licenses, viewing licenses, and hiding the Analytics tab) see Roles and permissions.
