This onboarding page provides instructions, best practices, and videos to quickly ready administrators for Qlik Cloud Analytics Premium and Enterprise.
Enjoy the convenience of a SaaS solution by letting Qlik manage the infrastructure.
Qlik Cloud Analytics is built on a highly-scalable, cloud-native architecture that empowers organizations to quickly deploy a complete range of analytics, massively scaling users and data without compromising performance, trust, or governance standards.
If you’re familiar with deploying and administering other SaaS enterprise applications, you’ll quickly understand the Qlik Cloud processes and tools.
If you’re new to the administrator role, this page is your first step to success.
Get a Qlik Account, set up your tenant and subscription, and invite users.
A Qlik Account is sometimes referred to as a Qlik ID or ULC. Once registered for a Qlik Account, you automatically have access to multiple Qlik sites, including Qlik Community and Qlik Continuous Classroom (QCC). Customers and partners can access the Support Portal and the full Downloads page. Partners can access the Partner Portal.
A Qlik Account is not just a user registration at Qlik, it is also includes an association with the Qlik IdP, the default identity provider for a SaaS tenant. A tenant is a unit in Qlik’s software subscription service, a container for items such as users, apps, and spaces.
Register for a Qlik Account and set up your tenant
To set up a tenant, you must log in with your Qlik Account and follow the steps in the auto-generated welcome email.
Create a Qlik Account and a Qlik Cloud tenant
- Sign up for a Qlik Account at Try Qlik Sense for free.
- Open the welcome email from Qlik.
- Click Let’s get started.
- Verify your email address, create a password, and read and accept the terms and conditions.
- Click Next.
- On the map, select your region.
- Click Get started.
Your tenant is created.
The first user who logs into the tenant becomes both the account owner and tenant admin. The account owner role is unique and cannot be transferred. The tenant admin role can be assigned to other users.
You must have at least one tenant admin, and as a security measure, you can therefore not remove the role tenant admin from yourself.
In Qlik Cloud Analytics Premium and Enterprise, you can choose between manually adding users or using your own Identity Provider (IdP).
Your subscription only includes one of the options.
Manually adding users
Users are manually added with the Management Console (https://<tenantname>.<region>.qlikcloud.com/console).
From the hub, you can also reach the Management Console via the Launcher menu .
In the Users section, click the Invite button and add the email addresses of users you want to add. An invitation is sent to the users.
You can also invite users from your profile:
An invite is only valid for a limited period. When an invite has been sent, the name column on the Users page shows Invited user and the status is Pending. Users accept the invite by registering for a Qlik Account. When the invite is accepted, the real user name is displayed with the status Active.
When users accept the invite, they are automatically assigned access. They can start creating, editing, and publishing sheets and apps, and make full use of the available features in the hub.
As a tenant admin you can assign the tenant admin and developer roles to other users. All tenant admins have the same permissions.
Adding users with an Identity Provider (IdP)
Qlik uses OpenID Connect (OIDC) for integrating Qlik Cloud Analytics with IdPs.
If you already have an IdP, check the Identity provider section in your Management Console (https://<tenantname>.<region>.qlikcloud.com/console).
Qlik Cloud Analytics supports several providers for creating an interactive IdP configuration. Use the Generic option if you have an IdP provider that is not listed. Manual configuration should only be used if you don’t have a discovery URL, or if the discovery URL does not give proper metadata.

The following videos introduce you to common tenant admin tasks.
Many of the actions related to apps and spaces are self-service, available to users from the hub. This means that those administration tasks can be performed by users themselves and do not require admin help. Permissions determine what actions a user can perform.
Add users via an identity provider, or via email invites with a registration process, and subsequent user management.
Assigning security roles
Security roles provide a set of tenant-level permissions to users and administrators. Assign roles to users and administrators manually or set up automatic role assignment.
Spaces are for app development and access control. Personal spaces for private work, shared spaces for co-development, and managed spaces for strict access control. Permissions define access for space members.
Work with apps: upload, publish, change owner, and move apps between spaces.
