Get a Qlik Account, set up your tenant, 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.

A welcome email is sent to you and you can now follow the step-by-step instructions.
You add users to the tenant by entering their email addresses into the Management Console: https://<tenantname>.<region>.qlikcloud.com/console
From the hub, you can also reach the Management Console via the option Administration in your profile.
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. Qlik Sense Business supports 50 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.
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.
User invitation and registration process, and subsequent user management.
Spaces are for app development and access control. Personal space for private work and shared spaces for co-development. Permissions define access for space members.
Work with apps: upload, change owner, and move apps between spaces.
Managing reload schedules
Apps in the cloud hub do not automatically update when their data sources are updated. Reload manually or schedule a reload.
