Licensing Qlik NPrinting Server

You will be prompted to activate your license the first time you open Qlik NPrinting Server.

You do not need to activate licenses for Qlik NPrinting Designer or Qlik NPrinting Engine. They are activated automatically based on license information from the Qlik NPrinting Server.

By default, only one Qlik NPrinting Engine is available for each Qlik NPrinting Server license. If you want to add additional engines to your Qlik NPrinting environment, you need to purchase them.

Qlik NPrinting versions February 2020 and later include the Qlik NPrinting licensing service which allows you to deploy Qlik NPrinting and activate licenses based on signed keys. This activation method is an alternative to the existing one that used LEF (License Enabler File). Once a signed license key is used, it is not possible to deactivate it or go back to a LEF, the only option is to change the signed license key used.
